Amélie London Cast Recording Release

The original London cast recording of Amélie The Musical is released this Friday, 5th June 2020.

The UK production which opened last year at The Watermill Theatre in Newbury and then extensively toured the UK before transferring to London's The Other Palace where it completed a sell-out run. The show is nominated for three Olivier Awards.

The cast album is produced by Sean Patrick Flahaven of Concord Theatricals and features the same multi-Grammy Award-winning team behind such original cast albums as Hamilton, Come From Away and Once.

The musical based on the 2001 French-language movie originated in America in 2015 and opened on Broadway in 2017. It features a score by Daniel Messé and Nathan Tysen with new orchestrations for the UK production by Barnaby Race. 

The show starred Audrey Brisson in the title role alongside Chris Jared as Nino and Caolan McCarthy, Emma Jane Morton, Faoileann Cunningham, Jez Unwin, Johnson Willis, Joshua Sneesby, Kate Robson-Stuart, Oliver Grant, Rachel Dawson, Samuel Morgan-Grahame and Sophie Crawford. 

The full album will be available from Friday (5th June) and you can pre-order and pre-save the album now from this link https://found.ee/amelie-mus. Pre-order the album ahead of release and you get the song Stay instantly.


Those who know me or have followed me for any period of time will probably know already how much this production means to me. I first saw it back in July last year at Leicester's Haymarket Theatre and was blown away by it. I gave it a glowing 5-star review on this blog and loved it so much that I went back to see it again the next day. I travelled to all the exotics locations to catch it again, Birmingham, Malvern, Woking, Eastbourne (5 hours each way for me!) and Reading. I caught it a further 3 times during it's London run.

The whole production just completely wrapped me up and made me feel safe. I knew I could just escape into this magical Parisian paradise and just be swept along by the story and the music. I've had therapy and things for my mental health but nothing touched me or helped me heal more than watching this show.

The astonishing work by the remarkable cast of actor-musicians still blows my mind. They created this beautiful sound and acted perfectly. The whole company, not just the masterpiece of a performance by Audrey Brisson were outstanding.

I'm SO excited for the release. I've listened to Stay on repeat for the past few days and from Friday I'll probably listen to nothing else but the album for a considerable amount of time. I can't recommend it to you all enough.

If you don't hear from me from Friday for a while then you'll find me escaped to Paris with the album!
