Robin des Bois (full title Robin des Bois: Ne renoncez jamais) is a major French musical production that premiered on 26 September 2013 on Palais des congrès de Paris and tipped as the musical event of 2013 in France. The performances have been extended in the Palais des Congrès until 5 January 2014.[dated info]
A Gilbert Coullier, Roberto Ciurleo and RDB-P presentation, the musical mise en scène by Michel Laprise and text and music by Patrice Guirao and Lionel Florence stars French singer M. Pokora in the role of Robin Hood.
In this amended version of Robin Hood, Robin and Marianne (in English Maid Marian) have decided to end their relationship. Fifteen years later, they both are leaders of their own groups, in two separated parts of the country. Marianne lives with Adrien, the boy she had with Robin, but Robin doesn't know about him. After another attack from the sheriff's army, Marianne requests Robin's help to save her group and their houses. Adrien, though, now 15, falls in love with the daughter of Shérif de Nottingham (in English Sheriff of Nottingham, the avowed enemy of Robin). When the sheriff realises that Adrien is Robin's son, he decides to imprison the young boy, despite the feelings his daughter has toward him. Robin launches a rescue operation with the help of his followers and notably Petit Jean (in English Little John) and Frère Tuck (in English Friar Tuck) played by Nyco Lilliu.
