Trivia

For this revival, Alan Jay Lerner used his screenplay for the 1967 film rather than his original 1960 stage play. The screenplay includes two scenes not included in the original stage play - the flashback structure seen at the beginning, and the sequence in which Arthur encounters Merlin while in the forest, followed by Mordred persuading King Arthur to stay in the forest.

King Arthur: Why is Guinevere in that castle, behind walls I cannot enter? Why am I on the far side on the channel on this dark and dismal plain waiting an angry dawn to do battle against the man I love, for the woman I love?

Great Musical!
22 January 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I love this Cable T.V. broadcast of "Camelot"! Richard Harris was outstanding and Meg Bussert was Beautiful! The singing far surpases the Original film version and the supporting cast is wonderful.Barry Ingam's Pellinore is a riot! Find this production if you can! Its not on Video yet!
