Peter Polycarpou joins Kelsey Grammer, Danielle De Niese, Nicholas Lyndhurst and Cassidy Janson in the acclaimed musical which opens at the London Coliseum on 26 April 2019 for a limited six week season and will be performed with the ENO orchestra.

Man of La Mancha is directed by Lonny Price,

In a 16th century dungeon Cervantes and his man servant await trial from the Spanish Inquisition. In his possession he has a trunk carrying an unfinished novel, Don Quixote. As prisoners attempt to steal his possessions, Cervantes embarks on acting out his novel as his defence, transforming himself into Alonso Quijano.

Quijano, deluded, believes he is a knight errant, renames himself Don Quixote de la Mancha, and sets off on a fantastical quest with his man servant Sancho Panza.

Chivalry abounds in this classic tale of knighthood, love, loyalty and adventure.

The music in Man of La Mancha is by Mitch Leigh, lyrics by Joe Darion and book by Dale Wasserman.
