Opera North's Music of the Knights Picnic Concert

Oh, what a Knight… or three!

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, Sir Elton John and Sir Paul McCartney have a lot in common. They are all British-born, they each have an Academy Award and multiple Grammys and they have all been knighted by Her Majesty, the Queen. They are also three of the most successful songwriters of all time, with careers that span decades. From Broadway to the top of the pop charts, these three musical geniuses have created an incredible legacy. Their work is assembled in a theatrical concert that will have you on your feet and singing along to the soundtrack of your lives.

The cast consists of three accomplished vocalists and a piano, bass and drums. The show is directed by Scott Coulter, its creator, who has received five MAC Awards from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs, five Bistro Awards and two Nightlife Awards for Outstanding Vocalists. He has performed at New York City’s top rooms, including Birdland, 54 Below, The Oak Room at the Algonquin, and Feinstein’s at the Regency, where he spent a record-setting eight months.
