Portland Opera Presents: Man of La Mancha
June 9 @ 7:30 pm to Saturday, June 17
The great American musical that won five Tony Awards® on Broadway will inspire you and lift your spirits!
Starring Grimm’s Reggie Lee as Sancho Panza. Author Miguel de Cervantes is about to go before the Spanish inquisition.
In this play-within-a-play, he invites his fellow prisoners to “enter into his imagination.” Assuming the character of Don Quixote, he engages them all in a tale of chivalry, undoing wrongs, and bringing justice to the world. With songs like “The Impossible Dream,” it remains one of the most enduring—and endearing—works of American musical theater.
