Am I not Don Quixote?

Don Quixote

AM I NOT DON QUIXOTE?

With the raving lunatic and humorous family show "Am I not Don Quixote?" FIGURA Ensemble invites you into the story of an instructor and three musicians working with Cervante's classic tale “Don Quixote de la Mancha”. Don Quixote fights windmills, falls in love with 
Dulcinea del Toboso, fights the knight of the hidden moon and saves the world from two lion's savagery. 

“Am I not Don Quixote?” is FIGURA's version of the ever-present story. It touches the deepest, the most important, the saddest and the very best in us: Our ability to believe in the impossible!
