I love international productions of Broadway musicals and have a fairly respectable collection of original cast recordings. But finding videos of those shows is often the Mother Lode.
This is from a foreign production of Man of La Mancha -- but more than that, where better than the motherland itself, Spain.
I could only find one video from the production, and its not "The Song," or one feature Don Quijote himself (as we say in Espagna...), but it's a wonderful version of the powerful, "Aldonza," sung by Paloma San Basilio, who I gather is a popular actress there, since I also found a video of her as Elliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.
But here she is opposite Jose Sacristan in the 1997 revival production of El Hombre de la Mancha.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
