 Notes & Reviews
Directed by Hampstead Theatres Artistic Director Edward Hall, CHARIOTS OF FIRE promises to be the theatrical event of our Olympic year. The production and this associated release will feature the music of the legendary Vangelis score, with additional new music written by Vangelis for the play. Set in 1924 during the Paris Olympic Games, a devout Scottish Christian runs for the glory of God. The son of an immigrant Lithuanian Jew runs to overcome prejudice. Two young track athletes who live for the beautiful purity of running and who prevail in the face of overwhelming odds. Based on the extraordinary true story of Eric Liddell and Harold Abrahams, CHARIOTS OF FIRE is an Olympic tale of hope, honor and belief. This is a dazzling new stage adaptation of Colin Wellands original screenplay, and the Decca soundtrack features music from the legendary original Vangelis score together with additional new music written for the play.
