MUSICAL THEATRE MELODIES - 9th October - "Lola Montez"

Rob Morrison's next Musical Theatre Melodies broadcast on Tuesday, 9th October at 9 p.m. (EDT) will feature a 60th Anniversary tribute to Peter Stannard and Peter Benjamin’s Lola Montez, (inspired by the 19th Century dancer and actress’s 1855 visit to Ballarat), from the 1958 Australian Elizabethan Theatre Trust cast recording starring Mary Preston, Jane Martin, Frank Wilson, Michael Cole, Alan Hopgood and Bernard Shine. 

This will be preceded by an introduction to the musical (via telephone from Brisbane) by Australian Musical Theatre historian, composer/lyricist and author - Peter Pinne.

The programme will include studio recordings of two additional numbers written for the show, including Peter Stannard’s last completed song for a 2018 concert staging starring Debora Krizak and will conclude with excerpts from an archival interview with original cast member, Alan Hopgood speaking about Lola Montez in 2012.
