Estampas del Quijote:  An adaptation of Don Quijote de la Mancha by Loly Lopez and Marisol Moreno.

Estampas del Quijote, a collaboration between CEC's theatre and Spanish dance departments, is an adaptation of the stories of the famous Don Quijote de la Mancha by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Loly Lopez created the written adaptation, based on excerpts from the original novel, which is put together with choreographies by Marisol Moreno in a sequence that follows the story of Don Quijote's adventures through La Mancha, as he searches to become a knight and find his Dulcinea. Join us as we witness Don Quijote's "andanzas" through La Mancha alongside his beloved friend and "escudero", Sancho.
