Borrowing from the Arthurian legends, Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot is the duo’s fantastical masterpiece, which triumphed on Broadway in a legendary original production starring Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet. The Original Broadway Cast Album topped the charts for 60 weeks, with a rich score boasting such gems as “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “The Lusty Month of May,” and of course, “Camelot.”
An idealistic young King Arthur hopes to create a kingdom built on honor and dignity, embodied by his Knights of The Round Table. His Ideals, however are tested when his lovely queen, Guenevere, falls in love with the young Knight, Lancelot and the fate of the kingdom hangs in the balance.
Join Charlottesville Opera for an all-new production featuring lavish sets originally designed for The Barter Theatre with costumes from the recent National Tour. Starring Barrington Lee as Arthur, Sharin Apostolou (returning for her sixth consecutive season) as Guenevere and Corey Crider as Lancelot. Conducted by Andy Anderson and directed by John de los Santos.
