The Collegiate Chorale's concert presentation of Kurt Weill's Knickerbocker Holiday, recorded live at Alice Tully Hall in January, is now available for pre-sale from Ghostlight Records and will arrive in stores June 28.
Ted Sperling directed; James Bagwell conducted the orchestra. The show's original orchestrations were employed. Read Playbill.com's special feature about the concert.
The cast included Victor Garber as Stuyvesant, Ben Davis as Brom, Bryce Pinkham as Washington Irving, David Garrison as Tienhoven, Kelli O’Hara as love interest Tina, and Christopher Fitzgerald as faithful sidekick Tenpin.
The complete track listing follows:
Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson teamed up for the first time to create this romantic comedy. First performed in 1938 with Walter Huston in the role of Peter Stuyvesant, the "work is one of Weill’s deft hybrid theatre pieces which lies somewhere between operetta and musical theatre, and also contains bits of political satire," according to production notes.
