Broadway musicals live show

|


Famous Broadway showtunes will light up a live show by pop singer Duc Tuan tonight in the capital city.

The HCM City-based singer has been considered by many in the industry as a vanguard singer, who "merges" musical tunes into pop music in an effort to bring the musical theatre pieces closer to mass audiences.

Tuan's 2009 album The Broadway Album: Music of the Night, featuring 11 songs from musicals in both English and French, won the Album of the Year award at the annual Music Contribution Prize last year. He also won the Singer of the Year award at the same event.

The 31-year-old singer says the show was designed to celebrate his 10-year singing career which started right after he won the top prize at the HCM City Television Singing Contest in 2000.

At the show tonight, which is entitled Paradiso, Tuan will perform 10 legendary songs such as I Am What I Am from La Cage Aux Folles, No Matter What from the Whistle Down the Wind and The Journey Home from Bombay Dreams.

Diva My Linh will be a special guest during the performance and will sing two duets with Tuan, Memory from Cats, and Music of the Night from Phantom of the Opera.

HCM City-based soprano Ngoc Tuyen will share the stage with Tuan to perform the song The Phantom of the Opera.

Tuan will also perform eight Vietnamese songs by famous Vietnamese veteran composers, including Trinh Cong Son, Pham Duy and Van Cao.

The song Con Mat Con Lai (The Remaining Eye) by Son will be presented in the musical-theatre style.

Under the baton of British conductor and musician Paul Bateman, whose arrangements and compositions are performed all over the world by artists such as Lesley Garrett, Sarah Brightman and Jose Carreras, the 40-member symphony orchestra of the Viet Nam Orchestra and Ballet Theatre will accompany Tuan during the show.

Choreographer Anthoula Papadakis, who has choreographed musicals such as Fiddler on the Roof, La Cage aux Folles, and Sunset Boulevard, is the art director of Paradiso.

Orchestrator Leigh Phillips, who is an experienced theatre and film composer, and conductor with numerous credits, will be among the show's crew.

The Paradiso show will start at 8pm at the Cultural Friendship Palace, 91 Tran Hung Dao Street.
