The Tony award-winning story of the marriage of England’s King Arthur to Guenevere is played out amid the pageantry of Camelot. The show opens with King Arthur nervously preparing to meet his new Queen, Guenevere. While initially, Guenevere tries to escape the marriage, the two young people soon fall in love, to the pleasure of Arthur’s wise tutor, Merlyn. In order to bring peace and stability to the kingdom, Arthur establishes the Knights of the Round Table who would use their might for right. Included amongst these knights, is the most famous of them all, Lancelot. Soon, Lancelot and Queen Guenevere fall in love. Their affair is brought public with the help of Arthur’s evil illegitimate son Mordred and his aunt, the sorceress Morgan le Fey. As a result, peace ends and war breaks out as Arthur’s troops prepare to fight Lancelot’s French army. Some of the enchanting musical numbers include The Lusty Month of May, How to Handle a Woman, I Loved You Once in Silence, If Ever I Would Leave You and What Do the Simple Folk Do?
