About This Show

Celebration Theatre presents the world premiere of a new musical, Gaveston, Favourite of the King with libretto & lyrics by Ken Prestininzi and music by Christopher Winslow. The show is produced and directed by Derek Charles Livingston, with musical direction by Darryl Archibald.

Based upon the 14th Century relationship of King Edward II and Piers Daniel Gaveston, the show is a timeless tale for these turbulent times. The operatic musical begins as Edward II becomes King, and calls to court his banished lover, Gaveston. Their reunion becomes the focus of political intrigue, emotional manipulation and finally, civil upheaval before its inevitable climax.
