Among the events celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of the Don Quijote de La Mancha, the Spanish theater company Bambalina is presenting a puppet version of Cervantes’ novel. The show will be held at Instituto Cervantes on Wednesday, May 20, at 7pm.

Through episodes such as the windmill adventure, audiences see how Quijote goes on mixing reality and fiction until he is finally humiliated by those around him and is vanquished by his own demons.
