This condensed, juvenile edition of Don Quixote by Arvid Paulson and Clayton Edwards was selected for its attractive cover paste-down illustration. The book interior includes four color plates by Florence Choate and Elizabeth Curtis, New York illustrators who worked together on more than a dozen children's books in the first half of the twentieth century. In his thirties, the artist became an established illustrator of children's books, and from to was one of the main contributing artists of the popular serial Mon Journal.
Later in his career Morin became devoted to religious subjects and designed stained glass windows for various churches, most notably those of the Le Mans cathedral southwest of Paris. This intriguing abstract line representation of Don Quixote with his lance atop his faithful steed Rocinante was the "membership edition" for the Albany Print Club in In the presentation essay for the print, Bate's Don Quixote was said to be "the sad old gentleman distilled to essence.
Hans Alexander Mueller was one of several prominent masters of woodcut and wood-engraving in Germany who were influential in the past century. In , a few years before the semiseptcentennial of Don Quixote, Mueller was commissioned by the Cleveland Print Club to produce a "membership edition" of a scene from the novel. Print clubs often offer, as a benefit of membership, an original commissioned work available exclusively to members. Mueller produced this charming two-color woodcut, representing as a "castle in the sky" the flurry of imagination that preceded Don Quixote's quest; his first adventure as a "knight-errant" was to be in chapter 2 at the inn, which he saw as "a castle with four turrets, the pinnacles of which were of glittering silver Cervantes fought against the Ottoman Turks in the Battle of Lepanto in , and joined his brother in the company of Manuel Ponce de Leon a year later.

The beloved Broadway musical Man of La Mancha had 2, performances in an original run of nearly six years, and in was made into a motion picture. Man of La Mancha presented a challenging dramatic concept, with the leading role alternating between the character Don Quixote and the author Miguel Cervantes. So true did all this phantasmagoria from books appear to him that in his mind he accounted no history of the world more authentic.

Famed caricaturist Al Hirschfeld , who specialized in entertainment figures, drew the illustration for the cover of the best-selling soundtrack from the musical, which featured Richard Kiley Don Quixote , Joan Diener Aldonza , and Irving Jacobson Sancho Panza. The foolish knight-errant Don Quixote became a nearly triumphant figure in the instant-classic hit from the show, "The Impossible Dream":. To dream the impossible dream, To fight the unbeatable foe, To bear with unbearable sorrow, To run where the brave dare not go And the world will be better for this, That one man, scorned and covered with scars, Still strove, with the last of his courage, To reach the unreachable stars!
As critic Brooks Atkinson notes in the program, "Although Don Quixote is a fool, no one can afford to be complacent about him. In worldly terms his foolishness consists of being an idealist. There is a touch of nobility behind the clown's mask. Although there were ballet productions of Don Quixote as early as with a staging in Vienna by Franz Hilverding, the version most popularly performed today had its debut at Moscow's Bolshoi Theater in The choreographer and librettist, Marius Petipa created a four-act ballet to music by Ludwig Minkus incorporating the more comic episodes from the second part of Cervantes' novel featuring the coquettish innkeeper's daughter Quiteria known in the ballet by the Russian Kitri , and her suitor, a barber named Basilio.
The Petipa work quickly became a classic of both the Bolshoi Theatre and the Kirov Theatre of Leningrad; and was re-staged with subtle changes by Aleksandr Gorsky in , and others throughout the first half of the twentieth century. Don Quixote was performed outside of Russia in a two-act version, danced by Anna Pavlova and her company, first in England in The complete, full-length ballet was staged in the West first in by England's Ballet Rambert.
The scenes in the ballet open with a traditional square in Barcelona, and move on to a Gypsy camp and a fantasy sequence in which Don Quixote falls asleep and dreams of Dulcinea in her garden. The final act is a grand classical wedding at the court of a Duke and Duchess, presided over by the Don and his faithful partner Sancho Panza.
Two of the greatest dancers of the twentieth century, Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov, have immortalized the role of Basilio, while ballerinas from Anna Pavlova and Maya Plisetskaya to Gelsey Kirkland have triumphed as Kitri. The Russian-born choreographer George Balanchine, founder of the New York City Ballet, was inspired by his favorite muse, the young ballerina Suzanne Farrell, to create an entirely new staging of Don Quixote with a commissioned score by Nicolas Nabokov. Unlike the joyous Petipa production, his version of the story highlights the Don's self-deluding fantasies and alienation from society.
At the center of the work is his idealized love for the pure and beautiful Dulcinea, whom he idolizes as his savior. Her ethereal performance in this role established Farrell as a star and she was promoted to the rank of principal dancer.
