Marie Bilodeau and I have had a lot of fun working together on a couple of shows at the Tea Party and West End Well, including our show of Arthurian Legends, a favourite for both of us. Now we have the pleasure and joy of doing another, new, show about King Arthur at the National Arts Centre as part of the Ottawa StoryTellers’ 4th Stage Series. And we’ll be joined by the fantastically multi-talented musician friend of mine, Jason Sonier.
The Wizard & The Dragon
January 21, 2016, 7:30 PM
Legendary King Arthur and his mentor the wizard Merlin still cast an enduring spell. Drawing on the original texts of Geoffrey of Monmouth, 1100 to 1155, and Lord Tennyson, The Idylls of the King, Nicole Lavigne and Marie Bilodeau, accompanied by the eclectic musical talents of Jason Sonier, journey into this tale of darkness versus light to explore the role of prophecy and fate in the lives of these two fascinating mythic figures. Let the enchantment begin!
