Tenor Mario Frangoulis

Star of Les Misérables, Phantom of the Opera and winner of Pavarotti Competition repertoire spans classical to Broadway to Smoky Robinson   

Fresh off a summer tour in Europe, Mario Frangoulis announces an intimate North American tour in three cities, including Montreal on Thursday, November 9, at Place des Arts. Mario Frangoulis, the classical crossover tenor and powerhouse vocalist, has sold over 1 million records worldwide and will present a varied program of music highlighting his exceptional range and expression during his concert, An Evening with Mario Frangoulis.

Broadway World raves that Frangoulis is “one of the most beautiful tenor voices on earth,” and although he is known for his charm, good looks, and humanitarian spirit, it’s Mario’s unique voice with “glistening dynamics and tonal control” (CNN), that has captured audiences across the globe. Critics agree that Mario is unique and versatile: “(He) is a veteran stage performer well-versed in everything from classical opera to popular musical theater, even Shakespeare… an extraordinary artist” (AllMusic).

Mario catapulted to fame after being discovered by legendary producer, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, who cast him as Marius in Les Misérables in London’s West End upon graduation from the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. After receiving rave reviews, Mario played Raoul in Phantom of the Opera. His instant success in the world of musical theatre was only a prelude to a multi-faceted career that put him at #2 and #3 on Billboard’s Classical Crossover charts with his first two international albums, Sometimes I Dream and Follow Your Heart, at #10 on BMG’s International Charts with Passione, and at #12 on Billboard’s Classical Music Charts with his first holiday album, Tales of Christmas in 2015. Awarded both the prestigious Maria Callas Prize and Pavarotti Competition for his classical achievements, Mario has toured extensively, filmed several live concerts, and released a total of 19 albums.

He has performed with a wide range of incredible artists in all musical genres from Plácido Domingo, Sarah Brightman, and Lara Fabian, to Jose Carreras, Smokey Robinson, and Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues. Mario has exemplified excellence in all his musical pursuits, and has become known throughout the world for blending classical and contemporary sounds with perfection and authenticity. An Evening with Mario Frangoulis will include songs from his international repertoire ranging from “Vinceró, Perderó” and “Notte di Luce (Nights in White Satin),” originally recorded with Justin Hayward, to “Beautiful Things” by Stephan Moccio and a fresh interpretation of the jazz classic “Nature Boy” arranged by GRAMMY Award winner, Jorge Calandrelli.

Diverse and enchanting, An Evening with Mario Frangoulis will take listeners on a musical journey that fuses classical and contemporary sound inspiring all ages. Fans of Andrea Bocelli and Josh Groban will enjoy this passionate performer.

Following his North American tour Mario will join Sarah Brightman on her Royal Christmas Gala series across Europe. Tickets for the November 9th concert at Place des Arts, Theatre Maisonneuve are now on sale at: www.placedesarts.com or the PdA Box Office: 514-842-2112; 1-866-842-2112.
