Lorna Doone

The Musical

The famour R.D.Blackmore novel “Lorna Doone” has been made into a stage musical by composer Les Emmans and librettist Pat Mugridge. It was very successfully premiered at the 1983 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and given a number of performances by amateur companies since then. Here are details of how copies may be obtained and permission for the work to be performed . Numerous pictures and sound extracts of performances can be viewed and heard on this site.

This part-portrait of Lorna is taken from one of the many prints
of the painting by William Wontner (1857- 1930).
