Legends of King Arthur
Trace literary epics from Sir Geoffrey of Monmouth’s battle records to Chretien de Troyes' French romances, Malory’s "Le Morte d’Arthur," and the prose of T.H. White’s "The Once and Future King." Learn about the many layers of Arthurian ideals.

Fun with Gilbert and Sullivan
Experience the delight of the comic operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan as we focus on the big three: “H. M. S. Pinafore,” “The Pirates of Penzance,” and “The Mikado." Delve into the stories, satirical lyrics and marvelous musical harmonies with piano performances and explore the connections between Gilbert and Sullivan’s theatrical devices and 20th-century American musicals using video excerpts.
