The Festival is yet again to be haunted by not one Phantom but three as it plays host to what has become the most exciting concert phenomenon to tour the UK in recent years, the Three Phantoms, with Special Guest Shân Cothi.
Sponsored by Airbus in the UK and in aid of CLIC Sargent.
The Three Phantoms is a spectacular production featuring former Phantoms Earl Carpenter (We Will Rock You, Les Misérables, Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Phantom of the Opera); Glyn Kerslake (Martin Guerre, Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, Scrooge, Phantom of the Opera) and the current Phantom of Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new tour, John Owen-Jones who between them have clocked up over 5,000 performances in the title role of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s eponymous musical, The Phantom of the Opera in the UK.
Together they will perform and host an evening that in essence celebrates what has become the world’s most successful entertainment phenomenon, The Phantom of the Opera. But no musical gets left untouched as the entire evening comprises of songs from shows that they love and have ultimately been involved with: Les Misérables, Jekyll & Hyde, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, and The Secret Garden, to name a few.
The trio will be joined by international musical and opera star, Shân Cothi. Her career as a singer has spanned an incredible range of music styles, from opera to oratorio, music theatre to traditional Welsh songs and a host of contemporary projects working with respected musicians form different musical genres as well as playing Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera, a role she performed for 15 months at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
