Lea Salonga at Dubai Opera

Your rating

Tony Award-winning singer and actress Lea Salonga will be taking to the stage to make her debut at Dubai Opera.

Renowned for her powerful voice and perfect pitch, Lea Salonga is best known for her Tony Award-winning role in ‘Miss Saigon’. Having begun her career as a child-star in the Philippines in 1978, Lea’s big break came when she was selected to play Kim in the mega-hit musical ‘Miss Saigon’ in 1989. During her illustrious career, Lea has toured the world, performing in a host of critically-acclaimed productions in iconic locations including Carnegie Hall in New York, the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Singapore’s Esplanade (twice), Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (twice), Hong Kong Cultural Center (multiple times) and Queen Sirikit Convention Center in Bangkok. As well as a dazzling performance as the hauntingly tragic Grizabella in a limited run of CATS in her hometown of Manila, she was also the first Asian to play Eponine in the musical Les Miserables on Broadway, returning to the beloved show as Fantine for the 2006 revival.

Fans of all ages will also recognise Lea as the singing voice of much-loved Disney characters including Princess Jasmine from Aladdin and Fa Mulan for Mulan and Mulan II. In August 2011, she was bestowed with the honour of “Disney Legend” for her portrayal of the iconic princesses, joining luminaries like Regis Philbin, Jim Henson (posthumously) and Anika Noni Rose.

Tickets will be available from 9am on 28 March at
