Man Of La Mancha is inspired by Miguel de Cervantes’ story Don Quixote. Cervantes and his manservant are awaiting trial from the Spanish Inquisition. With him, he has a trunk carrying an unfinished novel, Don Quixote. In an attempt to defend him, Cervantes acts out his novel, transforming himself into Alonso Quijano. Quijano, deluded, believes he is a knight errant, renames himself Don Quixote de la Mancha, and sets off on a fantastical quest with his manservant Sancho Panza.
