Geplaatst op

On May 24th Patrick van Deurzen – Mancha Mancha! will have it’s world premiere during the Rotterdam Opera Days. The excellent Dutch baritones Henk Neven and Mattijs van de Woerd take on the role of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, and theatre by the DoelenEnsemble and pianists Maarten van Veen and Hans Eijsackers. It can only be an entertaining comic farce full of fights and misunderstandings!…   

Crazy-foolish-comic-disruptive-and-also-with-singing-and-other-sound! “That’s how Patrick van Deurzen announces Mancha Mancha with some self-mockery. It is his first music theatre work. The libretto by Dutch author Ernest van der Kwast is based on Cervantes’ well-known book about the ingenious nobleman Don Quixote of La Mancha and his squire Sancho Panza. The wandering knight with an overdose of fantasy still appeals to the imagination.
