Program Notes

With hit musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats, Starlight Express and The Phantom of the Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber is the most successful musical composer ever. His most recent production The Woman in White is based on a novel of the same name and depicts a mystifying woman dressed in white and her adventures within a web of love, intrigue and mental breakdown!

Johan de Meij has welded together the best songs from the musical into a striking whole, and created a worthy rendering for the concert stage.

- Program Note by publisher


The Woman in White is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and David Zippel with a book by Charlotte Jones, based on the novel The Woman in White written by Wilkie Collins, and elements of The Signal-Man by Charles Dickens. It ran for nineteen months in the West End and three months on Broadway, making it one of Lloyd Webber's shortest-running shows.

On a midnight train trip on the way to Limmeridge House as a drawing teacher, Walter Hartright sees a strange woman dressed entirely in white, apparently fleeing from someone and desperate to share a terrible secret with him. The signalman is scared because, although he saw no one, it was predicted a year earlier that in a 'year to this day', someone would be found dead on the railway track.
