Knights of the Round Table is the first of the big operettas by ‘the crazy composer’, as Hervé was nicknamed.

Confident of the interest in his Knights of the Round Table, in 1872 he offered a revised version, which did not focus on Lancelot’s adventures. For Hervé, the Middle Ages were a pretext and backdrop which he used in the same way as Offenbach used antiquity: derision, ridicule, parody, energy and popular melodies all feature in this musical pastiche, where we enjoy following the adventures of ladies Mélusine, Totoche and Angélique. The knights Rodomont and Roland, as well as Merlin, contribute to this hilarious and spirited comedy.
