Sion Lloyd and Paul Ettore Tabone Join The Phantom Of The Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre
Having opened in 1986, The Phantom of the Opera holds the distinction of being the second longest running musical in the West End, celebrating many milestones along the way. Its fame makes it one of the most famous shows in the capital and as such news regarding its ongoing run at Her Majesty’s Theatre is followed with great interest.
So with that in mind all eyes are on the production as it reveals the new names joining the cast from early September. Siôn Lloyd and Paul Ettore Tabone are amongst them, playing Monsieur Firmin and Piangi respectively, alongside Mark Oxtoby, Daisy Hulbert and a returning Harriet Jones.
The Phantom Of The Opera is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s celebrated musical adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s famous novel. It centres on events at the Paris Opera House, where a mysterious presence known as The Phantom (Ben Forster) lurks behind the scenes and causes disruption when matters don’t go his way. When he falls for the singer Christine Daaé (Celinde Schoenmaker, with Harriet Jones on certain nights), all hell could break loose.
Siôn Lloyd is no stranger to high profile west end shows, appearing in the St James Theatre production of Miss Atomic Bomb alongside the likes of Sweeney Todd and The Bodyguard at the Adelphi Theatre.
Meanwhile, Paul Ettore Tabone previously dabbled in the world of The Phantom when he appeared in the sequel show Love Never Dies, with further credits in other shows all over the world. He is closely associated with the world of opera, performing in productions of Turandot, Rigoletto and Madame Butterfly, amongst others.
With Ben Forster and Celinde Schoenmaker continuing in the lead roles of The Phantom and Christine, further returning cast members include Nadim Naaman, Jacinta Mulcahy and Megan Llewellyn when the new cast joins on 5th September.
The Phantom Of The Opera is currently booking at Her Majesty’s Theatre for performances up to Saturday 4th March 2017, which takes it past October when it will celebrate its 30th Birthday in the West End.
