When SONG OF NORWAY, written by Robert Wright and George Forrest, was first premiered in 1944, it was an instant success. That such success should befall these two young writers, on their first outing on Broadway, is best articulated by Cole Porter who said of them "SONG OF NORWAY will make you a million - be performed longer than you live - you need never write another show - and all on your first Broadway try. What great good luck!".

SONG OF NORWAY is based on the life and music of Edvard Grieg.

Wright and Forrest went on to write the international hit Kismet and The Student Prince which are also released on JAY Records this month. That in recent years the writers are still enjoying international success with their musical GRAND HOTEL is a testimony to the evergreen appeal of their work.
