The new duet arrangement of the Oscar-nominated anthem “Journey to the Past,” featuring stage and screen Anastasia’s Christy Altomare and Liz Callaway, will be released on digital streaming and retail platforms September 28 in conjunction with a music video.
Callaway, who provided the singing vocals for the 1997 animated film of Anastasia, was the first to sing the Academy Award-nominated song by Tony Award-winning collaborators Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
Twenty years later, the torch was passed to Altomare, who created the role in the 2017 Broadway adaptation of Anastasia, which currently plays the Broadhurst Theatre.
They came together earlier this year to perform the new duet arrangement for audiences at Feinstein's/54 Below. Watch the live concert performance here.
“I can’t tell you how often people come up to me and tell me how much they loved the movie and how Anastasia was their childhood,” Callaway said. “Now they, as well as a whole new generation are getting to fall in love all over again with Anastasia the Broadway musical, and Christy’s beautiful performance. I think this recording is going to make a lot of people happy.”
