Camelot (The 2023 Broadway Cast Recording) [CD]
The beloved original score (lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner and music by Frederick Loewe) features such iconic songs as “If Ever I Would Leave You,” “The Lusty Month of May” and the title song “Camelot.” Based on “The Once and Future King” by T.H. White, CAMELOT, Lerner and Loewe’s 1960 follow up to My Fair Lady, is a story about the quest for democracy, the striving for justice, and the tragic struggles between passion and aspiration, between lovers and kingdoms. This epic and timely tale features the iconic characters King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, and Sir Lancelot. Music Director Kimberly Grigsby conducts a 30-piece orchestra performing CAMELOT’s original orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennett and Philip J. Lang and original dance and choral arrangements by Trude Rittmann. The 2023 Broadway Cast Recording is produced by David Caddick and David Lai.
