ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dracula is the new musical by Gareth Evans and Christopher J. Orton, with orchestration by Ian Lynn. The musical is an adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic gothic novel, 'Dracula'.
This collaborative work accurately represents the dark Victorian world of Stoker's novel whilst making a direct connection between the fictional vampire and historic figure, Vlad Tepes - Dracula. The libretto has been deliberately written with due consideration to the period and intention of the original 1897 novel.
This professional work is a musical based upon the novel (and Stoker's original references for the novel) and not based upon a film version, or some romantic idea, of the story and title character.

The musical "Dracula" has taken over six years to reach the present stage of development. After extensive research had been conducted by the lyricist in 1999 / 2000 (including the use of references to Stoker's original notes for the novel), the initial lyric structures for some of the proposed songs and the outline of the musical plot were written. The first version of the complete libretto had been produced by 2003 and has subsequently been further improved.
Christopher J. Orton and Gareth Evans began working together on the project in 2004, when Christopher began setting the libretto to his original music and to create the score for the work.
After the lyricist and composer had recorded some demo material of their work in 2004, and following some private cast readings of scenes, an opportunity arose to produce a professional concept recording of the show. This process began in 2005 after the noted composer, arranger and musical director, Ian Lynn, agreed to orchestrate the work.
The album features the leading West End musical theatre performer, Michael McCarthy, singing the title role.
The official album launch was on September 25th at Dress Circle (London). Since then the album has been selling well at all retail outlets and is still a top CD best seller at Dress Circle.
The UK Theatre Magazine, What's On Stage, published a very positive review of the Dracula concept album in its December 2006 issue. Recently, a track from the album was played on national radio. That was on the Elaine Paige show on BBC Radio 2.
A further album of the complete Dracula musical is planned and that process will begin during 2008.
The producers of the album are Sang de Vie Productions Ltd. They can be contacted via their website.

Dracula The Musical
BRAVO!!!! Truly a Masterpiece! I did have the pleasure of seeing the play for my birthday in San Diego. The story was Fantastic & the music was truly Mesmerizing! It crawls under your skin & pocesses your soul!! I only wish they could put it on DVD so i could also purchase it. If it comes back to Broadway i will buy a plane ticket only to see this play again! 5 STARS does not do it justice!

Great score and moving libretto
Exceptional musical work but a pity that the CD has been released without the lyrics or the libretto. I think this is essential when a recording of a musical is released. Besides I contacted them to see whether I could get it and I got no answer. This is the only flaw of an outstanding recording.

Dracula the Musical
This CD is amazing. I have listened to it every day since I got it. I listen to it every night when I go to sleep. The music is so beautiful and the lyrics fit the music perfectly. It's as good as The Phantom of the Opera, if better.
