Come June 21 and 22, Malaysia welcomes a new addition to its performing arts and musical entertainment landscape. ‘An Evening with the Phantom’ is Enfiniti Vision Media’s newest musical production, bringing together two sensational performers from similar musical backgrounds, Ramin Karimloo and Annalisa Kerrigan, to perform a rendition of songs from the ever-popular ‘Phantom of the Opera’ musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber as well as from other world-renowned classical plays.
Ramin Karimloo, an Iranian-born Canadian made his West End debut in 2001 and was eventually picked to take on the role of the new Phantom in the sequel 'Love Never Dies' in 2010, earning him a Laurence Olivier Award nomination. Karimloo has also appeared in other productions including 'Les Miserables', 'Jesus Christ Superstar' and 'Miss Saigon'.
Joining Karimloo onstage will be special guest Annalisa Kerrigan, the renowned Australian opera singer of Malaysian/Irish descent who has been described as possessing “the voice of an angel”. One of the concert’s highlights will be Karimloo’s duet with Kerrigan in the role of Christine, the Phantom’s love interest.
Defined by dissonance, unparalleled opulence, exuberance and ornate grandeur; ‘An Evening with the Phantom’ is expected to draw theatre and music enthusiasts into a world of drama and romance portrayed by the hauntingly angelic voices of both Ramin and Annalisa; bringing them past the notes and into the spirit of the music.
According to Group President of Enfiniti Vision Media, Datin Seri Tiara Jacquelina,
It's really such a rare opportunity for fans of theatre in Malaysia to be able to experience a performance of this caliber from the West End, featuring the original Phantom himself, here in Kuala Lumpur. We have been meticulously planning and preparing for An Evening with the Phantom for the past two months, and curtains go up this week already, it's so exciting!
(It's not everyday you get a chance to see Tiara Jacequelina in person. Being a blogger, I took the chance to ask her whether I could have a photo with her, which she gladly agreed).
(Had a photo with Annalisa Kerrigan as well, this time, with the hubs.)
