“Don’t let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment, that was known as Camelot.” With these words—some of Broadway’s most unforgettable—King Arthur instills in a young boy the hopes and ideals of a once enchanted kingdom, where he himself had promoted justice and civility over battle and greed. These dreams are shattered, however, when Queen Guenevere falls in love with Arthur’s most trusted knight, Lancelot. Lerner and Loewe’s masterful score includes Arthur’s enchanting title song, Guenevere’s “The Simple Joys of Maidenhood” and “I Loved You Once in Silence,” “Arthur and Guenevere’s “What Do the Simple Folk Do?,” Mordred’s “The Seven Deadly Virtues,” and a perennial hit parade favorite, Lancelot’s “If Ever I Would Leave You.” Join us on this musical and theatrical journey, and its promise—albeit for maybe only that shining moment—of a better world.
