Don Quixote De La Mancha, In Japan.

Every year prior to the school's bunkasai [culture festival] they have the kids attend some kind of play/show/musical. This year it was Don Quixote. While not The Man of La Mancha - [I'm almost positive to that, though never having seen it, there was no rendition of "Impossible Dream" - for which I can thank Quantum Leap for knowing it's part of the play. I totally need to watch that now.] - it did have a couple musical numbers.

Totally fun to watch though, even if I couldn't follow all the Japanese. Particularly fun were the bit parts they had some of our students play...
