Album: Brigadoon (1947)
Play Video


  • The word Brigadoon appears in the London Times of April 6, 1888; it was a horse entered in a race at Leicester. The next entry is for the musical, in April 1949. Brigadoon is a fantasy about two men from New York, Tommy Albright and Jeff Douglas, who are on holiday in Scotland.

    The musical was written by the team of Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. Lerner wrote the book and lyrics; Loewe composed the music. The original film version was released in 1954 with legendary dancer Gene Kelly in the lead. The original Broadway production was 1947.

    Just over ten minutes into the film, the two lost game hunters see the village, and the title song "Brigadoon" is introduced. >>
