Tony Award nominated Ramin Karimloo, star of Broadway and the West End, will be touring Australia for the first time, with special guest Anna O’Byrne, star of Australia’s My Fair Lady.
Well known for his starring role as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera 25th Anniversary Production at Royal Albert Hall, Andrew Lloyd Webber said “…a really popular…Phantom I have to say. He’s just great.”
Ramin recently starred in Anastasia on Broadway to high acclaim. Ramin has played starring roles including Jean Valjean, Enjolras and Marius in Les Misérables and The Phantom and Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera and Che in Evita.
Joining Ramin on stage will be Australia's leading lady, Anna O'Byrne. Anna was acclaimed for her portrayal of Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, directed by Dame Julie Andrews, for which she won a Helpmann Award. Australian born and now based in London, Anna has established an international career spanning opera, theatre, concert, and film.
She was chosen by Andrew Lloyd Webber to create the role of Christine in the Australian production of Love Never Dies.
