THE THREE MUSKETEERS – SWASHBUCKLING ADVENTURE


DSC06521

Alexander Dumas’ famous tale, “The Three Musketeers”, is the current production for Sydney’s Genesian Theatre in Kent Street. This adaptation by Ken Ludwig, commissioned by the Bristol Old Vic in England, is directed by Mark Banks with Roger Gimblett.

Featuring sword fights galore and of course that famous saying “All for one and one for all”, this exciting and sometimes comedic production highlights the adventures of d’Artagnan and his three compatriots, Aramis, Porthos and Athos as they uphold the honour of King Louis XIII and his Queen, against the evil Cardinal Richelieu.

Tim van Zuylen steals the show with his portrayal of King Louis XIII, especially when he is dressed in a gold satin suit, complete with shoulder length wig.

This tale of heroism, treachery, close escapes and sword fighting whenever the opportunity arises, with many laughs in between, will appeal to the entire family.

Playing until 27 June 2015, on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 4.30 p.m.
