" "How does it feel to be the King’s right hand?"
Foolishly, I looked at my right hand. I had no answer to give. I was full of boyish pride, but in truth I felt no different. I had no real idea of what a High King was. I had simply spoken of the loyalty I felt for Arthur. Though I had given that feeling words, it was the same thing I had always felt."

Lancelot Elaine of Astolat/The Lady of Shalott [2/?]

He spoke and ceased: the lily maid Elaine,
Won by the mellow voice before she looked,
Lifted her eyes, and read his lineaments. […]
Seamed with an ancient swordcut on the cheek,
And bruised and bronzed, she lifted up her eyes
And loved him, with that love which was her doom.

King Arthur - The Semi-Opera 


"King Arthur" is a semi-opera by Henry Pucell (music) and John Dryden (lyrics). Wikipedia has a detailed synopsis, so I won’t repeat it here.

The version I went to was performed by the Staatsschauspiel Dresden. If you want to see some pictures, have a look at their official homepage.


A part of me want to watch this because… opera.. arthuriana- but I never managed to start. The plot always kept me away and after Le Roi Arthus and Merlin by Isaac Albeniz I fear my expectations are too high D:

Gosh, everyone did the arthurian episode
