MAN OF LA MANCHA

A Music and Drama in a slightly different way!

In brief … a musical concerning hope, faith and never giving up under the time of communism!

The Broadway hit musical puts Cervantes’ novel into an inquisition prison, whereas it is adapted into a circus tent by Director Péter Fekete in 2012.

Why is a great black POBEDA, i.e. the great dreadful car of communism in the middle of the tent? Who are the people driven behind the barbed wire and sitting on their suitcases waiting for? Relocation? Holocaust? Concentration camp? People are waiting with empty looks, they are uncertain and have lost everything. They are distrustful toward the external world and to one another as well! Then somebody comes who tells tales, fights like Don Quixote, plays and gives hope. And also gives faith in the power of community and never giving up.
It is a unique theatre performance, a real team work: acrobats, musicians, artists, dancers are on the same stage, circus and theatre spaces give a combination of reality and dream. Monumental pictures that burn into memory, live music: a bunch of miracles.
It is a musical in a different way, without political hints but with a powerful thought message, and spectacular scenes never seen before.
