One of fiction's greatest comic heroes and his infamous sidekick are given rare three-dimensionality in this vastly entertaining performance by Andrew Sachs. His impeccable characterizations breathe life into each character; this is a true tour de force brimming with wry, irrepressible humor and grand, elegant speeches. Cervantes's trenchant wit shines through what could have been a rote performance but is indeed audio art. To say Sachs inhabits each role in an understatement; his Quixote could be a standard to be followed and a fine acting lesson for aspiring voice actors. D.J.B.
