Sir Patrick Stewart, OBE (born 13 July 1940) is an English film, television and stage actor, who has had a distinguished career on stage and screen. He is most widely known for his roles as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and its successor films, and as Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series. A personal favorite, I had to make him his own page.

I found 3 melodrama's by Patrick Stewart. The melodrama, a genre in which a spoken text is declaimed over a musical accompaniment, was a popular form in the nineteenth century, but it failed to thrive in the twentieth.

Enoch Arden

While performances of Strauss' 1897 setting of Tennyson's narrative poem "Enoch Arden" remain rare, it has aged well, and performances as fine as this are a testimony to its viability and its continuing ability to move the listener. Tennyson tells an achingly poignant story of three children, the two boys both growing to adulthood in love with the young woman, with delicacy and restraint.

Return to the Center of the Earth

Rick Wakeman's sequel to Journey of the Centre of the Earth, Return to the Centre of the Earth celebrates the original prog-rock masterpiece's 25th anniversary. Return to the Centre of the Earth tells the story of three explorers coming back to the path of their original expedition, only to embark on another fantastic adventure.

The Compleat Four Seasons

Mannheim Steamroller's concertmaster and violinist, Arnie Roth, joins his considerable talent with Musica Anima String Ensemble on The Compleat Four Seasons, a first-ever release of Antonio Vivaldi's "Four Seasons Suite" with the composer's own poetry. The poems root Vivaldi's musical score in the lush imagery of words, read on this recording by stage and television actor Patrick Stewart.

I added these to the Melodrama - Stories playlist.
