    Opera Australia: Don Quichotte

    The hero no one needed embarks on one last noble quest. From a time where men were brave and bold comes the dreamer, Don Quichotte. He chases bandits. Tilts at windmills. Serenades the pretty girls. He’s a hero like the knights of old, pursuing dreams the world forgot. It takes a special performer to make you fall in love with this eccentric character. Ferruccio Furlanetto’s Don Quichotte is famous. He takes the dreams and delusions of the famous knight-errant and paints an earnest and endearing portrait of a man out of time. Furlanetto’s Don Quichotte is brimful of whimsy and bursting with bravery. His sonorous bass finds all the colours of Massenet’s lush, romantic score. He performs with brilliant French conductor Guillaume Tourniaire and Sian Pendry as the damsel Dulcinée. This charming production was recently seen in San Diego and Chicago.
