More than 15 years ago, the founders of Excalibur approached me with a captivating challenge. They asked me to create a show that harkened back to a time of dragons and sorcery – a spectacle that would blend the stunts and swordsmanship of medieval legend with production values worthy of the modern Las Vegas stage.
Tournament of Kings is the magical result of our quest to create such an enchanted evening. We started with a troupe of supremely talented performers and masterfully trained horses. For them, we crafted dramatic costumes and a sweeping original score. We staged the action under colorful lights and explosive pyrotechnics. We added a joust or two and a touch of comedy. The result: a show that’s remained an audience favorite for more than a decade, appealing to show goers from all over the world.
It’s my hope as a producer that you will leave our realm feeling exhilarated by the experience, that you’ll go home feeling as if you were part of the show.
In that spirit, I invite you to partake heartily in this action-packed adventure. Lift your mugs in a toast with the Kings. Pound the tables in celebration. Raise your voice in the name of good, evil or both.
I hope we inspire a fun-filled evening as you join us for the Tournament of Kings.
Producer, Tournament of Kings
