All the power of imagination! Don Alonso, an average nobleman from La Mancha, decides one day to go out into the world as a travelling knight. Inspired by reading knightly novels, he henceforth calls himself Don Quixote and takes on the role of the fighter against evil, fighting for a new "Golden Age". Together with his squire Sancho Panza, he seeks adventure. But instead of performing heroic deeds, the two often suffer ignominious defeats. In their imagination, however, they are invincible, fighting wizards, demons and monsters. In reality, however, their opponents are not the giants from their imagination, but ordinary Spanish windmills that beat back with their wings.
Miguel de Cervantes, himself a wild adventurer, began writing the first part of the novel in prison in 1605. The adventures of the "Knight of the Woeful Countenance" continue to cast their spell on us to this day. "Don Quixote" is an icon of Spanish literature, a myth of adventure and world appropriation for all dreamers and fantasists. In his works, the young director Nikolas Darnstädt develops surprising visual worlds that fascinate in their aesthetic exaggeration. In his theatre version, he pits the power of ideas, creativity and fantasy against reality and its social norms. For the production of "Don Quixote" he works with a European ensemble from Lithuania, Austria and South Tyrol and in different languages.
