1066 - A Norman Epic Tale

Friday 14th July 2017
Old Magistrate's Court (Seale Street - St Helier)
(duration approx. 1h30)
As part of Le French Festival. Free entry

To celebrate the special link between Normandy and the Channel Islands, Maison de la Normandie et de la Manche is proud to present this special musical play which will bring back to life the epic tale of the Conquest of England by William, Duke of Normandy, in 1066.

Just before his passing, King Edward of England designates William Duke of Normandy as his successor, but the English lords refuse to recognize a foreigner as their king and crown one of their own, Harold, instead. The young duke of Normandy decides to go to England to reclaim the throne and this is where the story begins…

French artists Sowila Taïbi and Jaufré Darroux from SKALD Theatre Cie (from Pontorson, Normandy), will perform poems, music and songs (using medieval instruments) completely based on the story written by the jersey-born medieval poet Wace.

A programme with the translation (in English) of Wace's texts will be given to the public so that you can follow, word by word, this Epic Norman Tale!

Limited seats.
