abstract

Don Quijote en la Calle (Don Quixote on the street) is a popular show that takes place in Argamasilla de Alba (Ciudad Real). It is currently performed during the town’s Cervantine Days (April-June). At the moment, around 150 locals take part in this show, bringing the adventures of Don Quixote to life: horses, live music, dances from the Golden Age, fireworks, etc. In doing so, this unusual type of show achieves a unique staging. Heir to Estampas del Quijote (a street theatre that was formerly performed in the town), the Town Council of Argamasilla de Alba has applied to the Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha for Don Quijote en la Calle to be declared worthy of ‘Regional Tourist Interest’.
