The Woman in White

Selections from the Musical
Andrew Lloyd Webber /Arr: Johan de Meij
 
 

With hit musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Starlight Express and The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber is the most successful musical composer ever. In his most recent production The Woman in White,  Lloyd Webber has employed his tried and tested formula: this one he based on the 1860 classical novel of the same name by Wilkie Collins. The story is about a man who attempts to unravel the mystery surrounding a mystifying woman dressed in white, whom he meets in the park in the evening, fleeing from her attackers. His investigation develops into an adventure within a web of love, intrigue and exposures; slowly but surely the track leads to a madhouse, where the woman from the book title is confined for peculiar reasons…

Whether The Woman in White by Lloyd Webber will ever equal the success of The Phantom remains to be seen, but the music is definitely as exciting as Collins’ original book. Johan de Meij welded together the best songs into a striking whole, and created a worthy rendering for the concert stage.
