Don Chisciotte is based on an episode within Cervante's Don Quixote in which the hero prevents the forced marriage of a poor farm girl to the wealthy Camacho. This entertaining and innovative 'melodramma giocoso' was composed by Saverio Mercadante, a contemporary of Rossini and Donizetti, and this is the first modern recording of the work.
