Marc Blitzstein: The Cradle Will Rock

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Bridge Records is pleased to be issuing the first complete recording of Marc Blitzstein's signature creation, The Cradle Will Rock. The new recording features Blitzstein’s original 1937 orchestrations and was recorded live at Opera Saratoga in July 2017. The performance features a stellar cast including Ginger Costa-Jackson as Moll; Keith Jameson as Harry Druggist; Christopher Burchett as Larry Foreman; Audrey Babcock as Mrs. Mister; and Matt Boehler as Mr. Mister. The production is conducted by John Mauceri with direction by Lawrence Edelson. The two-disc set also includes a rare recording of Marc Blitzstein discussing the opera's opening night in 1937.The opening night of The Cradle Will Rock (July 16, 1937) was one of the most infamous in history. The attempt to shut down and censor the production resulted in an improvised performance with Blitzstein playing his score on the piano, which has influenced performances of this American masterpiece for decades. This new recording restores Blitzstein’s brilliant original orchestrations to their full glory.
