Melissa Errico is one of the most versatile women to have come out of this Broadway’s young generation, proving herself both a great interpreter of classic musicals and modern music alike, as well as a gifted recording artist and film/television presence. Hailed by the Opera News as “The Maria Callas of American musical theater,” she was best known for her starring roles on Broadway. Her album Sondheim Sublime was called “The best all-Sondheim album ever recorded” by The Wall Street Journal. Nothing in her work has been more constant than her association with Michel Legrand. Having starred in his sole Broadway show Amour, she was asked to write his eulogy by The New York Times, where she is a frequent contributor, and Invited to be the sole American performer to participate in Legrand’s extraordinary two-day memorial at Paris’s Le Grand Rex Theatre. This fall Ghostlight Records reissues her symphonic album, which Legrand arranged & conducted, as Legrand Affair Deluxe Edition.
