Product Description

Product Description

A love story set in Paris during the Second World War, Marguerite draws inspiration from one of the greatest of romantic novels, La Dame aux Camélias by Alexandre Dumas.

Marguerite is the beautiful and notorious mistress of a high ranking German officer. Armand is a young musician half her age who falls obsessively in love with her. Their dangerous love story is played out against the background of Occupied Paris.

Marguerite opened at the Theatre Royal Haymarket to ecstatic reviews on 20th May. The story and conception is by the originators of Les Miserable, Alain Boublil and Claude - Michel Schonberg (with Jonathan Kent). Music is by Michel Legrand and lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer (the lyricist for Les Miserables)

You have to see this show to fully appreciate the score on this CD. Because Boubil and Schonberg have written this with Michel Legrand, memories of Legrand's wonderful music and LES MIS come immeadiately to mind. Unfortunately the CD needs repeated playings until you begin to enjoy the music. For quick joy the ballad "Dreams,shining dreams" and " Time was when" are excellant and there is some dialogue and evocative sound between tracks giving the French resistance in Paris feel that helps in understanding the piece. Ruthie Henshall is wonderful but I did feel there should be more excellant Boubil and Shonberg Ballads to stick in my mind. Go see the show,then you'll want the album.

This CD has something very special for a soundtrack. It completely recreates the sound and atmosphere of the live show bringing back many fond memories. The songs are extremely well sung by a superb cast and wilst some say the music is not particularly memorable I completely disagree. I play Time Was When everytime I'm on my laptop and the rest of the score is passionate, subtle and moving. A must see musical and a must have album!

Saw this show july 2008. A really moving performance from both Ruthie Henshall(magnificent) and Julian Ovenden. The music is heavenly from start to finish and it is definitely a must see again tear jerker. Wonderful.

I saw this show in June 2008 and it was excellent. Both Ruthie Henshall's and Julien Ovenden's voices stand out and there are several songs which get under your skin and you find yourself playing them over and over in your head without even realising it. However, I have to say the music itself largely does not stand out. The show was more like a play with music, rather than a musical, and to fully appreciate the music, it helps to have the imagery and stage atmosphere in your mind. In summary, if you've not seen the show live on stage, I am unsure of how big an impact this album will have on you. On the other hand, if you've seen the show, this album is a must have. I look forward to reliving the music again to take me back to that night in June...

The musical was beautiful. Shame it had to finish in London so soon, really hope they would come back to the West End! Great songs. There are as many memorable ones as in Les Mes, Phantom, etc., but there are a few really powerful solos/duets. Quite emotional too, especially if you have seen the musical live.

Format: Audio CD
Well, take a little touch of les Miz, add Sunset Blvd, plus a sprinkle of West side story, add a lot of sugar, shake it, and you've got the sound of Marguerite. Add for good measure a kind of Greek chorus giving voice to the sciovinistic french bourgeoisie to link, sing and comment the episodes. The inane story: boy meets older girl, girl dies. Didn't work much on La Traviata by Verdi between Alfredo e Violetta.Didn't work either in La dame aux camelias by Dumas fils between Marguerite and Armand. Doesn't work much better here. Too much musical and emotional intensity from the beginning to the end, and consequent monotony. Pure shmaltz. If you know what I mean. Still, although repetitious, the melodies are rich and interchangeable, but at the end of the listening you're left with a unsatisfied feeling of déjà vu, nothing new, same good ol' stuff...

I live in the U.S., and have not been able to see the show, but I'm a big Ruthie Henshall fan, so have read a lot about it and have heard clips of a few songs. The music is beautiful, and the songs are heart-wrenching. It's especially helpful to have the printed lyrics, to understand what's going on and the emotion behind it. I love it!
