King Arthur live at Bard SummerScape

Sasha Cooke as Queen Guinevere; Norman Garrett as King Arthur; Matthew White as Lancelot.

King Arthur, featuring baritone Norman Garrett and mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke in an original staging by Princess Grace award-winner Louisa Proske, will run for four performances on July 25, 28 and 30 and August 1 at Bard SummerScape. The performance will be anchored by the American Symphony Orchestra and Bard Festival Chorale under the leadership of festival founder and co-artistic director Leon Botstein.

The July 25 performance will also be livestreamed with an encore virtual presentation on July 28.
