Colette 1980 Original London CastColette - 1980 Original London Cast

Available for the first time on CD!

Colette is based on the life of one of France's most celebrated writers. Tracing her career from childhood through three marriages and two World Wars, Colette gives an insight into the life of this fascinating personality, the centre of many a scandal.

The score by Sir John Dankworth gives ample opportunity to demonstrate the incredible talents of Dame Cleo Laine. The three husbands (and the woman) in Colette's life are played by Kenneth Nelson (The Fantasticks) and John Moffatt narrates the story.

Colette opened at London's Comedy Theatre in September 1980.

The CD features sleeve notes by Sir John Dankworth and includes rare production photos.

Digitally remastered from the original master tapes.
