Ron Lalá Theater Company (Spain)
Somewhere in Quixote
An inspired adaptation of the novel by Miguel de Cervantes
Directed by Yayo Cáceres
In a large imaginary library, the great Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes is writing his literary masterpiece Don Quixote. But he's desperate for inspiration, so he begs his friends, a barber and a priest to help him act it out and finish his story! Pretty soon, his adventurous tale--about a noble hidalgo who's read one too many books on chivalry and gone a little mad--takes on a life of its own. As the confused "knight" Don Quixote enlists his trusty squire Sancho Panza to right all wrongs and rescue his true love Dulcinea, the lines begin to blur. Where does the author end and his famous character begin? What is a dream and what is real life? With their unique blend of rapid-fire theater, humor, live music and song, audience interaction, and text adapted from the novel, a small band of actor-musicians from Madrid's Ron Lalá performance company reveals all the wit, rebelliousness, and magic of the Don Quixote legend in a fresh and clever way.
