Man of La Mancha

  • Divadlo Na Pradle (map)

Based on the novel by Miguel de Cervantes, this play within a play mixes fact and fiction, starting with Cervantes himself in prison, staging the story of Don Quixote as his defense – inspired by the real-life trial of Cervantes as a heretic. Along the way, we meet a collection of wonderful characters, including Sancho Panza, Antonia, Aldonza and hear some of the greatest songs ever to grace the stage – including “The Impossible Dream”, now a standard classic.

Performed in English with Czech surtitles
