Blondel archiveIn the reign of Richard The Lionheart, Blondel is an unfairly (in his view) unappreciated court musician, desperate for fame and fortune until his realisation that there are more important things in life - honesty, bravery and Fiona, the woman he loves. He is caught up in the political crises of the time; the leader of the country has taken the nation into a dodgy war in the Middle East, his deputy is a dishonest and lecherous man who is after his job, fame and celebrity seem to be the watchwords of the day, illegal immigrants are treated badly and indiscriminate killers stalk the whole of Europe. According to publicity material, only Prince John's tights remind us that this is the 12th century, not the 21st.


Lyrics: Tim Rice
Music: Stephen Oliver
