Anna O’Byrne and Ashley Stillburn, who star in the forthcoming London revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Woman in White, perform “I Believe My Heart” from the musical in the video above.
The Charing Cross Theatre revival, featuring a revised score and libretto from composer Lloyd Webber and lyricist David Zippel, begins previews November 20 prior to an official opening December 4. The 12-week engagement will run through February 10, 2018.
“I am so excited about this new production. The Woman in White is a wildly exciting romantic thriller which is frequently tender and personal,” commented director Thom Southerland in an earlier statement. “The music is grand, sweeping and instantly captivating. Having long been an admirer of The Woman in White, I know that Charing Cross Theatre is the ideal intimate space for audiences to experience it for the first time or rediscover this lush Victorian Gothic thriller.”
The story follows a young tutor who arrives at an English country estate to teach art to two orphaned half-sisters, who've fallen under the spell of an eerie, fortune-hunting nobleman. The musical premiered on the West End in 2004 ahead of its Broadway debut.
The Woman in White is produced by Patrick Gracey, Steven M. Levy, and Vaughan Williams by arrangement with The Really Useful Group Limited.
