New Adventures of Don Quixote
In this sequel to this original adaptation, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza once again set out to right the wrongs of the world and become entangled in other comical episodes of mistaken identity.
GALita, a program for the entire family, is proud to celebrate the legacy of the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra with the world premiere of Nuevas aventuras de Don Quijote by Patricia Suárez and Cornelia Cody.
Based on Don Quijote de La Mancha, considered the first modern novel and a classic of Western literature by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, this adaptation is a sequel to Las aventuras de Don Quijjote de La Mancha, which GALA commissioned and produced in 2012.
This new bilingual version with lively music stages more misadventures of the gentleman from La Mancha and his loyal squire Sancho Panza. The idealistic dreamer again takes up his lance and sword to defend the helpless and to fight injustice as he as roams the Spanish countryside with his sidekick battling windmills and embroiling themselves in hilarious episodes of mistaken identities.
