MASSENET: Don Quichotte

In this version of Cervantes’ great classic, the simple farm girl of the original novel becomes the more sophisticated Dulcinée, a flirtatious local beauty inspiring the infatuated old man Don Quichotte’s deluded exploits. Jules Massenet composed the title role for the legendary Russian bass Feodor Chaliapin.
