“Wildly inventive…. steeped in myth but utterly modern…. a tour de force.” – The Washington Post
Commissioned by Peak Performances as part of its new extended residency program, From Scratch, QUIXOTE is a bold re-imagining of the Cervantes classic. With new music by Amy Beth Kirsten and direction by Mark DeChiazza, the team that created Columbine’s Paradise Theater, QUIXOTE lets us experience the mad knight’s hallucinations first hand. A soprano, mezzo-soprano, contralto and four singing percussionists provide the voices inside the old man’s head. This simple and gorgeous production is equal parts storefront theatre and expressionistic opera.
75 minutes, no intermission.
