Synopsis


Dream the impossible dream …


The award-winning musical Man of La Mancha returns to London, starring Kelsey Grammer and Danielle de Niese.


Featuring the iconic song 'Dream the Impossible Dream', Man of La Mancha is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes's masterpiece Don Quixote.


In a 16th century dungeon Cervantes and his man servant await trial from the Spanish Inquisition.


In his possession he has a trunk, carrying an unfinished novel Don Quixote.


As prisoners attempt to steal his possessions, Cervantes embarks on acting out his novel as his defence, transforming himself into Alonso Quijano.


Quijano, deluded, believes he is a knight errant, renames himself Don Quixote de la Mancha, and sets off on a fantastical quest with his man servant Sancho Panza.


Chivalry abounds in this classic tale of knighthood, love, loyalty and adventure.
