The four hundred years of Don Quixote have served to vindicate the work before the new generations, as well as to renew the sense of the classics as foundations for modern culture and knowledge. Also, to highlight so many Quixotes that have even made the work of Cervantes its own expression. Santiago García brings his perspective on Cervantes’ work and his own staging. He read the book over and over in search of dramatic parts, trying to find events and adventures in the play that were not well-known to the public.
El Quijote stresses the absurdities of Don Quijote’s quest, as he attempts to right wrongs and rescue damsels in distress. Don Quijote and Sancho stumble through a series of adventures (or misadventures, as Sancho calls them.) Company members never falter, never miss a step. At the same time, the director’s creativity is unbounded.—Backstage
