I like this rendition of the song, performed in a Broadway production Man of La Mancha. Aside from the amazing singing performance and theatrical skill of Brian Stokes Mitchell, whenever I listen to it I am drawing parallels to struggles fighting for a better world. It reminds me that the fight is hard and often thankless, that the foe is strong and often terrifying and yet, only those that dare to carry on the fight with a vision of a better future in mind stand a chance of prevailing.
