Moderator: Eric Myers, Opera News

This much-celebrated 1966 telecast of Brigadoon, the beloved Lerner & Loewe musical about a legendary village that appears only once every hundred years, was telecast on ABC’s Armstrong Circle Theatre starring Robert Goulet, Sally Ann Howes, Peter Falk, Marlyn Mason, and Edward Villella. The broadcast of Brigadoon (which has never been released commercially) was produced and directed by Fielder Cook, adapted for television by Ernest Kinoy, choreographed by Peter Gennaro, and conducted by Irwin Kostal—and went on to win five Emmy Awards including Outstanding Musical Program and Outstanding Director.

Following the ninety-minute screening, actress and singer Marlyn Mason (“Meg Brockie”) and dancer Edward Villella (“Harry Beaton”) will be interviewed by Opera News writer Eric Myers.

This event is coproduced by Opera Index.

Special thanks to the Frederick Loewe Foundation for their generous support of this event.
