Massenet's 'Don Quichotte' with Furlanetto, Goniukov and Kiknadze from Vienna

Live streamLive stream

Massenet's 'Don Quichotte' is an opera in five acts to a French libretto by Henri Caïn. Massenet's comédie-héroïque, like so many other dramatized versions of the story of Don Quixote, relates only indirectly to the great novel Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes. The immediate inspiration was Le chevalier de la longue figure, a play by the poet Jacques Le Lorrain. In this version of the story, the simple farm girl Aldonza (Dulcinea) of the original novel becomes the more sophisticated Dulcinée, a flirtatious local beauty inspiring the infatuated old man's exploits.

Performers: Ferruccio Furlanetto: Don Quichotte. Andrii Goniukov: Sancho Panca. Anna Kiknadze: Dulcinée. Anastasia Barun: Pedro. Evgenia Asanova: Garcias. Taras Prysiazhniuk: Rodriguez. Sergei Radchenko: Juan.

Choral Society of the Vienna Friends of Music Association. Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. Conductor: Tugan Sokhiev.
