Staying Alive

Today’s Staying Alive video features baritone Wayne Tigges singing “The Impossible Dream” from Man of La Mancha by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion. He is accompanied by Lyndon Meyer.

Wayne Tigges was last seen in Tulsa in 2018, when he sang the role of Ping in Tulsa Opera’s production of Turandot.

“The Impossible Dream” is the most popular song from Man of La Mancha. Within the play, Don Quixote sings it to Aldonza when she asks him what he means by “following the quest.” No matter how hopeless or how impossible the odds may seem, his goal is to keep pursuing what’s right. The song has since been performed by dozens of artists, including Robert Goulet, Frank Sinatra, and Cher.
