Anton Zetterhom perf. “Stroke by Stroke” from Jasper in Deadland
Here’s a look back on 2019.
RSO PENS SCORE FOR HUGO
RSO composed music and co-lyrics for HUGO, an adaptation of the 2011 Martin Scorsese film, which is itself an adaptation of the award-winning novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret, written by Brian Selznick (who has also written the book and co-lyrics for the musical).
Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris, upcoming MJ) directs and choreographs.
The project was first announced under the new partnership of Theresa Page and Tim Headington forming LeyLine productions (recent producers of the London hit & Juliet).
More details will be announced at a later date.
THREE POINTS OF CONTACT Conceptual Album released
The new recording featuring songs from RSO’s “marriage” musical was released in February via Spotify, Apple Music, and all streaming platforms.
Gavin Creel, Lindsay Mendez, Isaac Cole Powell, Jessica Vosk, Jenn Colella, Ben Crawford and more are featured.
Additionally, RSO released We Foxes: Tracks, an EP of songs from the show, and Darling: Live in Concert, a live recording of the 2016 concert starring Kerstin Anderson and Nicholas Christopher. Both are available on all streaming platforms.
