Poor Mab. She's an evil sorceress in a world that no longer cares about evil sorceresses: Magic's on its way out, Christianity's on its way in, and before long the result will be a world that doesn't even believe in dragons.What to do? Create a wizard who will go into the world and ensure that humanity will not forsake magic in favor of Christianity.Thus is born Merlin, the sorcerer whose shadowy presence pervades all the Arthurian legends, from Excalibur to Camelot to the Search for the Holy Grail.

At his ripe old age, most horses have retired to a blissful pasture, but not Merlin. The chestnut Morgan steed, in residence at a Glen Arm equestrian school, prefers working to grazing in his golden years. After a 32-year career, Merlin Tris Don, as he is formally registered, can still land in first place in a nationwide competition: He has just been named the American Morgan Horse Association's 2011 Therapy Horse of the Year. The award caps a career highlighted by performances on film and on the competition circuit.

Thanks to the stage and screen Lerner-and-Loewe musical Camelot, Americans know something about the legends of King Arthur. Maybe it's the keenly weighted three-way love tale, with the good king's nearly perfect knight, Lancelot, falling for his queen, Guinevere. Maybe it's the dueling magic of Arthur's slippery half-sister Morgana and his mentor-wizard Merlin, or the villainy of (depending on the version) his cousin, nephew, son or brother, Mordred. Maybe it's Arthur's proof of destiny when he wrests a sword from a stone, or his formation of his Round Table and its codes of chivalry.

In popular memory, the 1940s are associated with a brutal world war and its aftermath. But the decade also saw a remarkable surge of artistic innovation. The works of bebop pioneer Charlie Parker, choreographer Martha Graham, composer Aaron Copland, director John Huston, to name a few, remain a powerful influence on American culture. In its 2004-2005 season, announced yesterday, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will draw national attention to this transformational time in the nation's life.
