Amélie cast recording to launch on 5 June – get a first listen to track ‘Stay’ now

Published 29 May 2020

Craft Recordings and Concord Theatricals are proud to announce the release of the Original London Cast Recording of Amélie, which recently completed a hit, critically acclaimed run at The Other Palace Theatre in London. The show was significantly revised for its UK production after its Broadway run in 2017. The digital album is now available for pre-sale HERE and will be released digitally on Friday 5 June.

Click HERE for a first listen of the track “Stay,” featuring Audrey Brisson and Chris Jared.

Amélie’s Original London Cast Recording features the West End cast of 13 actor-musicians: Olivier Award nominee Audrey Brisson as Amélie, Sophie Crawford as Gina, Faoileann Cunningham as Georgette/Sylvie, Rachel Dawson as Amadine/Philomene, Oliver Grant as Lucien/Mysterious Man/Gnome, Chris Jared as Nino, Caolan McCarthy as Hipolito/Elton, Samuel Morgan-Grahame as Joseph/Fluffy, Emma Jane Morton as Delphine, Kate Robson-Stuart as Suzanne, Josh Sneesby as Blind Beggar, Jez Unwin as Raphael/Bretodeau, and Johnson Willis as Collignon/Dufayel.

The album was produced by Tony Award winner Sean Patrick Flahaven, Chief Theatricals Executive of Concord, who has been a producer on many albums, 12 of which were nominated for Grammy Awards. The album was co-produced by Michael Fentiman, Barnaby Race, and Nathan Tysen.

The London premiere of Amélie had music by Daniel Messé, lyrics by Nathan Tysen and Messé, and a book by Craig Lucas. It was directed by Michael Fentiman. Music supervision, arrangements, and orchestrations were by Oliver Award nominee Barnaby Race, with music direction and additional orchestrations by Samuel Wilson, and sound design by Tom Marshall.

“I’ve known Dan and Nathan for more than 20 years and have seen Amélie through its evolution,” said Flahaven. “The score is gorgeous, the book is truly moving, and I was completely charmed by this production and the quality of performance and musicianship. I know listeners and future producers will be as well. A show about unselfish acts of kindness, emerging from isolation and loving each other is exactly what we need now.”

“It was wonderful working with Michael Fentiman and his team on this reimagined Amelie. I am thrilled to be recording this new version which includes new songs and a few reinstated numbers, all performed by an extraordinary ensemble,” said Tysen. “Seeing the UK production of Amélie felt like I was watching a favourite band cover a song of mine, and hearing everything as if for the first time,” added Messé.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
