Brel adapted the book, translated the lyrics, directed the production, and played the role of Don Quixote. This was the only time he ever adapted songs by other writers or appeared in a stage musical.

This French-language adaptation of the well-known 'Man of La Mancha' marked Brel's mainstream theatrical debut and was a great success. He performs seven of the 13 songs on the LP, including duets with Diener and Jean Mauvais, but only one solo piece, a stirring, and increasingly intense 'La Quête' better known as 'The Impossible Dream'. The closing sequence, however, is at least the equal of that most emotional performance. 'La Mort', a nine-minute medley, floats through several of the themes previously visited during the duration of the play and, while Brel is again only one of several featured vocalists, still it is difficult not to become ensnared in the breathtaking drama of it all.
