The House with Chicken Legs London cast recording released

Les Enfants Terribles, in collaboration with writer and composer Alexander Wolfe, has released the Original London Cast Recording of The House with Chicken Legs.

This release coincides with the production’s festive run at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, which continues until 30 December 2023.

The newly released soundtrack, distributed by Absolute Label Services, features a blend of contemporary musical theatre, traditional Russian folk music, and Wolfe’s unique style. Available across major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music, the album can also be purchased on iTunes. Fans can access the album through the website here. The 13-track collection includes lively numbers such as “Yaga House Party” and heartfelt ballads like “Destiny”.

James Seager, Co-Director of The House with Chicken Legs and Les Enfants Terribles, said: “It is incredibly exciting to finally release this album as we are so keen for people to listen to the fantastic music whenever they want! From when we first premiered the show last year, to listening to the live music on tour, we were always keen to get a cast recording and I am beyond thrilled that we spent time recording it all to time with our run this Christmas at the Southbank Centre.”

Alexander Wolfe, Composer, Co-Lyricist and Sound Designer of The House With Chicken Legs said: “I’m really proud of the music in the show so I’m really happy we’ve got a record of what we made. The cast are incredible and their performances blew me away in the studio. I hope people enjoy listening to it as much as we did making it.”

The cast recording features Eve de Leon Allen, Lisa Howard, Dan Willis, Michael Barker, Elouise Warboys, and Stephanie Levi-John, with Alexander Wolfe himself playing multiple instruments. The musical is an adaptation of Sophie Anderson’s bestselling novel and brings the story of Baba Yaga to life with live music, puppetry, and projection. It narrates the tale of Marinka, a young girl living in a house with chicken legs, dreaming of a normal life.

The House with Chicken Legs is adapted by Oliver Lansley and directed by Lansley and James Seager. The production boasts designs by Samuel Wyer, Jasmine Swan, Nina Dunn, and Jane Lalljee, with original illustrations by Melissa Castrillón and Elisa Paganelli.
