Launching Stage Door's 'Cast Album Masters Series' is
the CD debut of the
'Ambassador' Original London Cast Recording.
Based on the Henry James novel
'The Ambassadors', the musical first opened at London's Her Majesty's Theatre in October 1971 starring
Howard Keel and Danielle Darrieux. Featuring music by Don Gohman and lyrics by Hal Hackady, the plot focuses on lawyer Lambert Strether (Howard Keel), who is instructed to travel to Paris at the request of his employer, the widowed Mrs Amelia Newsome. Amelia wants him to find her wayward son, Chad, and rescue him from the clutches of a Frenchwoman and bring him back to America. In Paris, Lambert experiences the clash of cultures and finds the openness of the European lifestyle far more attractive than his own stifling existence.
The release of 'Ambassador' launches Stage Door's 'Cast Album Masters Series'. Licensing recordings from the major labels, the series will present the CD debut of many London Cast Recordings from the 1960s and 1970s, all
digitally remastered from the studio master tapes.
The 'Ambassador' London Cast Recording is licensed courtesy of
Sony Music Entertainment UK Limited.
