Commentaires : The original was rather bitchily described by Noel Coward as “Parsifal without the jokes”, and forty years later the critics reviewed this revival as “a hugely over-long and desperately unwieldy Arthurian hotch-potch” and as “seventeen hummable songs hung on a hokey story-line”.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Boring, tuneless."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "It's not only an amiably pleasing show but it also reminds us how politicians appropriate popular culture for their own ends."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "You often wish the show had more bite ....Still, there are some nice tunes and some enjoyable acting."
DOMINIC CAVENDISH for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "An evening of diminishing returns."
ALASTAIR MACAULAY for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "Despite its occasional patchiness in terms of music, it's hard to think of Camelot without affection."
