Princess Cruises has announced a 14-track music soundtrack to go along with its brand new “Magic To Do” show. The Magic To Do Musical is from the Oscar, Grammy and Tony award-winning composer of “Wicked,” “Pippin,” and “Godspell” Stephen Schwartz.
The new musical soundtrack is available for pre-order on ITunes and will be released on CD and digital download on streaming services on September 9. The album is the first of its kind by a cruise line, and gives listeners the opportunity to bring home the wondrous world of song from “Magic to Do.”
Adrian Fischer, vice president, entertainment experience for Princess Cruises said:
“Collaborating with Stephen and his creative team has been an incredible honor for our entertainment team.”
“Magic to Do” can only be seen on a Princess cruise and we’re thrilled to be the first cruise line to offer an original cast recording album to such a fantastic production show.”
The “Magic To Do” music show first made its debut onboard the Crown Princess in October 2015. Since then the show has rolled out to Ruby Princess and Emerald Princess. The soundtrack has 14-tracks by David Schwartz who has already won four Grammys, three Academy Awards for “Best Song” and “Best Score” for “Pocahontas” and “Best Song” for “The Prince of Egypt” and received the Isabelle Stevenson special Tony Award.
The partnership between Schwartz and Princess Cruises is bringing a total of four new musicals to debut across the fleet over the next several years. Princess Cruises recently announced the second musical production show created in collaboration with Schwartz and his team of professions creators, entitled “Born to Dance” – a tribute to Broadway choreography featuring inspired performances that celebrate some of Broadway’s most famous hits. The show will debut in fall 2016.
