Christy Altomare and Liz Callaway to Release Duet of "Journey to the Past"
Two Anastasias come together for a recording of the new single.
A new duet of the Oscar-nominated song "Journey to the Past," from the Broadway musical and 1997 animated film Anastasia, is set to be released on September 28, featuring Broadway star Christy Altomare with the original voice of Anastasia, Liz Callaway.
The single will be available September 28 for purchase on iTunes and for streaming on Spotify and Apple Music. A special music video will be released with the single. The duet features accompaniment by Anastasia composer Stephen Flaherty and a vocal arrangement by Benjamin Rauhala.
"I can't tell you how often people come up to me and tell me how much they loved the movie and how Anastasia was their childhood," says Callaway. "Now they, as well as a whole new generation are getting to fall in love all over again with Anastasia, the Broadway musical, and Christy's beautiful performance. I think this recording is going to make a lot of people happy."
Anastasia opened on Broadway on April 24, 2017 at the Broadhurst Theatre, featuring a book by Terrence McNally, a score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics), and direction by Darko Tresnjak. The cast is currently led by Christy Altomare, Zach Adkins, John Bolton, Max von Essen, Vicki Lewis, and Mary Beth Peil.
