Don Quixote, October 13-30, 2016
Fletcher Opera Theater
Scenes of love and battles with windmills have filled our hearts with humor and pathos since 1605 when Cervantes first set forth his tarnished knight, Don Quixote, into the world along with his loyal sidekick Sancho Panza. Robert Weiss finished his quest to tell this centuries old tale in 2008 when the News and Observer dubbed it “one of his very best creations, a huge crowd pleaser.” Don Quixote is imagination come to life. This production commemorates the 400th anniversary of Cervantes' death in 1616.
