More details

Experience the musical unlike any the world has ever seen: a beautiful love story that broadens our own spirit of courage and compassion. Over 3,000 guests were taken on an extraordinary journey during the sold-out world premiere of The Real Love at the prestigious Pasadena Civic Auditorium in California, USA on August 27, 2011.

The Real Love was based on the amazing true life story of the world-renowned spiritual teacher, humanitarian, poet and artist Supreme Master Ching Hai. Two-time Oscar-winning composer Al Kasha recognized in Supreme Master Ching Hai’s life a musical waiting to be shared with the world, and soon it was magically brought to life through some of the best talents of both Broadway and Hollywood.

It’s the moving story of a young Vietnamese Red Cross worker who is deeply involved in helping the world’s refugees, and the handsome German doctor Rolf who wins her heart. She is a woman of faith; he a man of science. Although happily married, Thanh must soon make a difficult decision of going on a journey – alone to India – to seek a true happiness she can share with all fellow humans.

Making this musical truly unique, selections from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s exquisite poetry were set to music by five eminent Broadway and Hollywood composers – Oscar & five-time Emmy Award winner Bill Conti, two-time Oscar winner Al Kasha, Emmy winner Doug Katsaros, Tony & Emmy winner Don Pippin and Oscar & two-time Grammy winner David Shire.

A dream cast with West End actress Joanna Ampil, Tony Award winners Daisy Eagan and Cady Huffman, and Tony Award nominees Adam Pascal and Robert Torti was joined by an outstanding 24-member ensemble. Guest stars featured were Tony-winning singer Betty Buckley, Italian classical vocalist Filippa Giordano, legendary Oscar-winning actress Shirley Jones, Tony winners Trent Kowalik and Kiril Kulish, Emmy-winning singer Faith Rivera, noted actor Tom Schmid, screen veteran Dick Van Patten, and soprano Lynne Wintersteller.

This exciting collaboration also included a top-notch creative team and dedicated crew, as well as a world-class 21-piece orchestra.

Through this exquisitely crafted volume, readers can vividly experience the musical in the complete book, lyrics, sheet music, original poems and full color photos of The Real Love – a musical commemorating one of the most fascinating journeys and greatest love stories the world may ever know!
