To Each his Dulcinea by Cast of Man Of La Mancha

Album: Man Of La ManchaReleased: 1965
  • This is the second song about Dulcinea from Man of La Mancha: A Musical Play, by Dale Wasserman, with lyrics by Joe Darion, and music by Mitch Leigh.

    The phrase is actually of some significance. Dulcinea does not actually appear in the original novel, Don Quixote, although she is accorded great significance by the delusional hero as his idealised woman when in fact she was an ordinary peasant girl he had never actually met.
  • The song, which is written in 3/4 time, is also known as "To Each His Dulcinea (To Every Man His Dream)", which is all the explanation it needs; in the musical adaptation, Don Quixote's Dulcinea is a lowly serving wench, albeit one with a fiery temperament.
