Wuthering Heights 

Recording cast
Sharon Campbell | Clive Carter | Lesley Garrett | Bonny Langford
James Staddon | Dave Willetts

LESLEY GARRETT (Cathy) has established herself as one of Europe's leading sopranos and her various recordings - “Diva,” “Soprano In Red,” “The Lesley Garrett Album” - have been constantly in the higher reaches of the classical charts in recent years. Born in Doncaster, Lesley became one of the most popular figures at the Colisseum in London with the English National Opera, taking the lead in a number of operatic productions including Cunning Little Vixen, Street Scene and Die Fledermaus (in which she made international headlines by baring her bottom to the audience). She has also made many television appearances (including a series with Dudley Moore) in her crusade to bring opera to a wider audience. See An interview with Lesley Garrett

DAVE WILLETTS (Heathcliff) took over from Michael Crawford in the original West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of The Opera after making his starring debut on the London stage in the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. Dave has returned to the role a number of times in response to public demand. He also created the lead male role opposite Petula Clark in the West End production of Someone Like You. Dave has given a series of live performances on tours around Britain - including tours with Lorna Luft, daughter of Judy Garland and sister of Lisa Minelli. For more details about Dave and what he is doing at present, see The Dave Willetts Home Page
 

BONNY LANGFORD (Isabella) has been a  stage and screen star since childhood when she took one of the lead roles in the film musical Bugsy Malone and played the role of Violet Elizabeth Bott in the television series based on Richmal Crompton's William stories. She has appeared in leading roles in many West End and touring productions, including Me and My Girl and Little Shop of Horrors. Her list of credits would fill a book!


SHARON CAMPBELL (Nellie Dean) played Mary Magdalen in the original West End production of Jesus Christ Superstar. She was afterwards given a recording contract by a major record company, but faded from the limelight when she decided to devote her energies to raising her daughter. She has worked continuously as a session singer and has appeared as a backing vocalist on many recordings.

JAMES STADDON (Edgar) has appeared  professionally in a number of Musicals and recently played Javier in the West End production of Les Miserables. He has also established himself as an actor and recently appeared alongside Robert Lindsay in Cyrano de Bergerac. James did a number of demo recordings of Benard J. Taylor's earliest works.

 

CLIVE CARTER (Hindley) has appeared in leading roles in a number of West End Musicals - including Sondheim's Into The Woods, Someone Like You (in which he co-starred with Petula Clark and Dave Willetts) and played Raoul in Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre, London.
