PARADEFORHITPARADE?

The Jewish Chronicle - - ARTS&BOOKS -

HERE IS some news for those who have seen the cur­rent, su­perb Don­mar pro­duc­tion of Ja­son Robert Brown’s Pa­rade, based on the true story of Leo Frank, a Jewish fac­tory owner falsely con­victed of mur­der­ing a girl in At­lanta in 1913.

Note­book has learned that cast record­ing will be re­leased later this month.

The cast record­ing is a strange niche in the mu­sic in­dus­try. With each song you try to imag­ine the ap­pro­pri­ate scene, with­out which most mu­si­cal mu­sic only half-works. Whereas with opera no such bar­rier ex­ists.

Note­book would be grate­ful for any the­o­ries as to why this should be so.
