Somewhere in La Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember… Do you recognise this sentence? Hint: it is the first sentence of the most outstanding piece of work of Spanish literature (and one of the greatest works of literature ever written!). Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes, of course! The famous novel arrives at London theatres adapted by James Fenton and performed by David Threlfall as Don Quixote and Rufus Hound as Sancho Panza.
