One of the world’s great tenors, Mario Frangoulis, flies into Sydney to serenade you for one exclusive evening
One of the world’s great tenors, Greek powerhouse vocalist Mario Frangoulis has jetted into Sydney, Australia for a one-evening only exclusive performance at the grand City Recital Hall Martin Place, Sunday 22 October.
Frangoulis who is on a world tour, will be performing for Sydneysiders this week before heading out to perform in New York and Montreal.
“I am very excited to be visiting Australia and performing for my fans” says an enthusiastic Mario Frangoulis, who looks forward to sharing his music with fellow Greeks and other music lovers.
Organisers have promised audiences an evening of great romantic ballads through Mario’s unique repertoire of beautiful music and charming, genuine stage presence.
This “daring and inspiring tenor” (Billboard), who starred in London’s West End in the romantic leading roles of Marius (Les Misérables) and Raoul (Phantom of the Opera) and who studied with legendary Spanish tenor Alfredo Kraus, is currently on tour while his Sing Me An Angel public television special airs this year.
Born in Africa and raised in Greece, he studied at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he was discovered by Sir Cameron Mackintosh, referred to by the New York Times as “the most successful, influential and powerful producer of our time.” Mackintosh immediately cast him to play Marius in Les Misérables in London’s West End and soon after, he was invited by Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber to play the role of Raoul in Phantom of the Opera to great critical acclaim.
It was during this time, that Mario discovered the operatic side of his voice. As a winner of the Maria Callas scholarship and Pavarotti competition, he found himself on a path to Italy to study with the late tenor Carlo Bergonzi.
