ABC Wednesday Q for Don Quixote
A couple of decenniums ago my husband and I went to the musical of "the Man of la Mancha" about the story of Don Quixote, who left his home because he was fed up with his niece who was his housekeeper. He calls his old horse:" Rossinante", an old inn:" a castle". The barmaid is "his lady Dulcinea".
One of my favourite songs is: "To Dream the impossible Dream..."
The story is both touching and in a way also amusing.
Well the whole story is to be found in Wikipedia so please read
more about it yourself. In the meantime enjoy the video of the Dutch National Ballet.
