Tori Amos: The Light Princess 2CD

The Light Princess is Tori Amos’ first musical, which debuted to great critical acclaim at the National Theatre in 2013. The album features the original London cast, recorded entirely under studio conditions. The musical is a "dark fairy tale about grief, rebellion and the power of love" based on a 19th century fairy tale by George Macdonald.

With book and lyrics co-written by Tori Amos and Samuel Adamson, the story centres around teenage princess Althea of Lagobel who lost gravity when refusing to mourn over her mother’s death and is therefore bound to float above ground. When war breaks out Althea, pushed by her father to come to ground and take responsibility, flees only to fall in love with the rivalling kingdoms prince.

As a special bonus, the album, which was recorded over the last two years will include two songs from the musical performed by Tori herself for the very first time. This 2 CD set comes in a beautiful digipack with 32p booklet including the complete libretto and photos from the London production.
