News   First Night Records to Release Marguerite's Original London Cast Recording
The original London cast recording of Marguerite — the new musical currently playing London's Theatre Royal Haymarket — will be released on the First Night Records label July 28 in the U.K.

Marguerite features music by Michel Legrand, a book by Alain Boublil, Claude-Michel Schönberg and Jonathan Kent, lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer from the original French lyrics by Alain Boublil and orchestrations and arrangements by Michel Legrand and Seann Alderking. Directed by Jonathan Kent, previews of the Parisian-set love story began May 7 with an official opening May 20. The cast is led by Ruthie Henshall in the title role with Julian Ovenden as Armand and Alexander Hanson as the German officer, Otto.

Set during the Second World War, Marguerite, according to press notes, "draws inspiration from one of the greatest of romantic novels, 'La Dame aux Camélias' by Alexandre Dumas. Marguerite is the beautiful and notorious mistress of a high ranking German officer. Armand is a young musician half her age who falls obsessively in love with her. Their dangerous love story is played out against the background of Occupied Paris."
