Don Quichotte, Massenet's comedie-heroique, is a tale of heroism, adventure and unrequited love. The action relates more closely to the play Le Chevalier de la longue figure by Jacques de Lorrain, than the great novel by Miguel de Cervantes.

Here he joins Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra for a sumptuous recording of Massenet's final great opera.
