Lerner and Loewe’s classic musical, Camelot, will be revived as a concert production at the London Palladium in February with Ramin Karimloo, Lucy St Louis and Bradley Jaden
West End stars Ramin Karimloo, Bradley Jaden and Lucy St Louis will lead the cast in a one-night-only production of classic musical, Camelot in concert at the London Palladium.
The concert production of Lerner and Loewe’s rarely staged show, featuring a full orchestra, will be on Sunday February 6.
King Arthur will be played by Olivier and Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo who has starred in musicals including Phantom of the Opera, Les Misérables and Love Never Dies and most recently has played Kian Madani in Holby City for the past two years.
He said: “This is going to be a very exciting production and the fact it is for one exclusive night only makes it even more special.
“To perform as the majestic King Arthur and be joined by Lucy St Louis as Guenevere and Bradley Jaden as Lancelot will make this an absolutely stunning show and I can’t wait.”
Lucy St Louis this week took over the lead role of Christine in Phantom of the Opera in the West End while Bradley Jaden has starred in Les Misérables and Wicked.
Camelot tells the story of Arthur, the idealistic King, who hopes to create a kingdom built on honour and dignity. His ideals, however, are tested when his wife, Guenevere, falls in love with the young knight, Lancelot creating one of the most famous love triangles in literary history.
It features music and lyrics by Lerner and Loewe, best known as the writers of My Fair Lady. Songs include “If Ever I Would Leave You”, “I Loved You Once in Silence” and “Camelot”.
Camelot first opened on Broadway in 1960 starring Julie Andrews and Richard Burton, winning four Tony Awards and going on to be made into a film in 1967 with Burton and Vanessa Redgrave.
Camelot in Concert at the London Palladium will be presented by live music and event promoters Cuffe and Taylor in association with theatre producers Lambert Jackson Productions.
Lambert Jackson creative director Eliza Jackson said: “Camelot in Concert is an incredibly exciting production for us and one that we know will be very special.
“With Ramin, Bradley and Lucy leading the cast as the legendary love triangle, we have the most incredible display of talent for this show, and we plan to announce more cast members soon.
“Lerner and Loewe created the most soaring music with wonderfully descriptive lyrics and to be given the opportunity to bring this story to life at the magnificent London Palladium is something we very much look forward to doing.”
Ben Hatton, director of theatre touring for Cuffe and Taylor, added: “We are delighted to be working with Lambert Jackson and such a strong cast.
“This is an exclusive one-night only production and that means one thing – hurry to get your tickets as this is a not to be missed show.”
