A ballet by Francois Klaus with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra
One kingdom united. Three hearts torn apart.
A valiant hero and leader of the Knights of the Round Table, King Arthur drew the sword Excalibur from a stone. He brought peace to a country in chaos, but even as fabled Camelot flourished, the seeds of destruction had been sown. When the bonds between the King, his Queen Guinevere and his trusted friend Lancelot disintegrated, so too did the fragile peace of the land.
Choreographer Francois Klaus has created a thrilling ballet which chronicles the life of this legendary King. From his early years under the protection of the mighty Merlin, to the cruel betrayal by those he loved best, and eventually, his final battle with the villainous Mordred, the story of the one true King of the Britons is brought vividly to life in bold and expressive dance.
