The El Quixote Festival, in collaboration with the Triangle Youth Music and the Cary Arts Center, proudly presents Crispín d’Olot in "La Razón De La SinRazón" (The Reason For The Unreason). There will also be a special performance of Georg Telemann’s "Don Quixote Suite" by the Triangle Youth Philharmonic. A meet and greet will follow the performance. Crispín d’Olot is an internationally-renowned troubadour who has recited Medieval Spanish romances and brought that Peninsula’s history and culture to life all over the world. As part of the seven month long El Quixote Festival, Crispín will be traveling throughout N.C. visiting educational institutions with his one man show – "La Razon De La Sin Razon" (The Reason For The Unreason) – This cultural experience offers stories, relapses, songs and poems, dedicated to the knight of the sorrowful countenance.
Let yourself be swept away to that time filled with enchanting princesses, enchanted castles, knights, minstrels and troubadours. Be enthralled by the time that dreamt up the craziest and most famous knight that the centuries have ever known, Don Quixote De La Mancha, son of Don Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Help us celebrate 400 years of these amazing two books that many have claimed to be the best novel ever written.
