From the celebrated team of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe, who created the beloved musical “My Fair Lady,” comes this dazzling musical adaptation of T.H. White’s “The Once and Future King,” one of literature’s most cherished fables.
The idyllic kingdom of Camelot is thrown into chaos when a love triangle emerges between the beautiful Queen Guenevere, gentle King Arthur and dashing knight Lancelot. Faced with an arduous moral dilemma, the noble king must decide whether to sacrifice his true love or his prized honour. Magicians, sorcerers and noblemen run rampant, only to collide in a flurry of fanfare as Lerner and Loewe spin an unforgettable web of spellbinding action and forbidden love.
“Camelot” is one of those extraordinary musicals that has something for everyone — romance, comedy, drama and a score full of memorable songs.
