Jeremy Irons will play King Arthur opposite the previously announced James Barbour's Lancelot and Melissa Errico's Guenevere in Irish Repertory Theatre's concert performance of the classic Lerner and Loewe musical Camelot, to be presented as part of the company's 2011 benefit gala at Broadway's Shubert Theatre, on Monday, June 6. Charlotte Moore will direct, with musical direction by Mark Hartman.

In Camelot, King Arthur has created a utopian land of chivalry and civil rule. But when his beloved Queen Guenevere and Sir Lancelot, his most trusted knight, succumb to their passion for one another, he faces a terrible dilemma that will rock his kingdom to its very core.

Irons' many stage credits include The Real Thing, for which he won the Tony Award, The Winter's Tale, Richard II, Never So Good, Embers, Impressionism, and A Little Night Music.

Irons won an Academy Award for his performance in Reversal of Fortune and the Emmy Award for Elizabeth I. His many other film and television credits include Being Julia, Appaloosa, The Merchant of Venice, and Brideshead Revisted, as well as Showtime's current series, The Borgias

In addition to the concert, the gala will include dinner with the cast at Sardi's, following the performance.
