LAS VEGAS (November 7, 2019) – “Tournament of Kings: ‘Twas the Knight” makes its return to Excalibur Hotel & Casino November 20 – December 31, continuing the popular holiday tradition. The Tournament of Kings Arena magically transforms into a winter wonderland, guaranteeing all a ‘holly jolly’ time during this limited engagement.

“The Tournament of Kings holiday show has become a tradition for many during this festive time of year,” said Excalibur Hotel & Casino president & COO Eric Fitzgerald. ‘Twas the Knight’ builds on the success of the Tournament of Kings’ original dinner show and offers our guests an entertaining, celebratory experience.”

King Arthur cordially invites all to joust in the medieval merriment of his kingdom while cheering on their country’s hero in an epic battle for honor. Audiences will witness the magical Merlin summon snowfall on the Kingdom while listening to holiday-inspired music, poems and songs performed by the cast. “Tournament of Kings: ‘Twas the Knight” will feature magnificently designed holiday costumes, majestic banners, flags and a castle light illuminating the spirit of the festive season upon the lands. The vignettes created for the show include a specially choreographed ribbon dance and a skilled rider upon an Andalusian stallion.

Guests will indulge in a three-course feast which, true to the time of Merlin, will be eaten sans utensils. The festive meal includes a rich Dragon’s Blood (tomato) Soup, fresh Cornish Game Hen, tasty baked jeweled yams, freshly roasted broccoli trees, Maple Whole Wheat Biscuit and a decadent apple strudel.
