Description: In 2013, the National Theatre produced a musical staging of the Scottish fairy tale of the same name written by George MacDonald. It is adapted by Samuel Adamson, directed by Marianne Elliott - winner of the Tony Award for Best Directing in 2011 - and has music and lyrics by Tori.

The musical premiered in September 2013, starring Rosalie Craig in the titular role. The cast recording was produced by Tori and was recorded during 2014 at different stops during her Unrepentant Geraldines Tour. Her team, including Mark Hawley and Marcel van Limbeek, engineered the cast album throughout the tour, having recorded the orchestra in April and met up with the different cast members "as they were available". It contains all 33 tracks from the show and features exclusive bonus tracks sung by Tori. Tori has expressed how happy she was that this cast recording of this nature could be completed, since many theater musicals never get an album release given how expensive and logistically complicated it can be to coordinate.

A poster signed by Tori and Samuel Adamson was offered through the Tori Store (via MyPlayDirect at the time) with pre-order of the album.
