Abrilliantly talented composer-librettist."
         Canadian Theatre Review

Leslie Arden is arguably Canada's most talented Musical Theatre writer.  Equally skilled as a composer, lyricist and librettist Leslie Arden has written some of Canada's most powerful and moving works of Musical Theatre.

"The House Of Martin Guerre" has been an international success, playing to rave reviews in Chicago and Toronto.  It deserves to, and will someday, be produced around the world.

"Harvest Moon Rising" is the beautiful story of a modern family struggling to maintain their family farm and their rural way of life.

Her work for "The Children's Trio", a Young Audience Touring Company, includes the sophisticated one-act musicals "The Happy Prince" and "The Princess And The Handmaiden".  "The Princess And The Handmaiden" will soon be available in a new 2-Act version.

Watch for the 2002 release of a new CD of Leslie Arden material, plus the publication of the first Leslie Arden Songbook.
