1957 Live Television Broadcast


When the live broadcast aired on Sunday, March 31, 1957, viewers were informed that the soundtrack album, which had already been recorded, would be in “your local record store” on Monday morning. Columbia Records had taken the cast and orchestra into their famous 30th Street studio under the guiding hand of Goddard Lieberson and created a definitive recording – and in true stereo! With orchestrations by longtime Rodgers & Hammerstein collaborator Robert Russell Bennett, this original cast recording stars Julie Andrews as Cinderella and Jon Cypher as the Prince, along with a brilliant supporting cast including Kaye Ballard, Alice Ghostley and Edie Adams.
