'Phantastic' concert comes to DuctacC

By Staff

Ductac is set to be haunted not just by one phantom but by three as it plays host to three of the biggest names from London's West End from during February 17-19.

Three Phantoms is a brand new concert featuring three former Phantoms who between them have clocked up over 2,000 performances playing the title role in Andrew Lloyd-Webber's eponymous musical.  Earl Carpenter and Rohan Tickell: returning to Dubai after the success of their hit show ENCORE!; are joined by Matthew Cammelle who currently stars in the International Tour of Mamma Mia. Together they will perform and host an evening celebrating what has become the world's most successful entertainment phenomenon, The Phantom of the Opera, as well as performing numbers from other hit musicals that have put them at the top of their profession.

Musical theatre fans and especially Phantom 'Phans'- are in for a real treat as they can expect some unique backstage insights and anecdotes from Rohan, Earl and Matthew's time as the Phantom. The trio will also be singing songs from various other adaptations of the story that inspired Andrew Lloyd Webber to write his incredibly evocative score.

Of course, no Phantom would be complete without his Christine and Three Phantoms is no exception, as they will be joined by musical theatre star Gina Beck. Amongst her many accolades she starred in the role of Cosette in the Cameron Mackintosh and RSC production of Les Misérables and then joined the cast of Phantom of the Opera to play Christine for two years.

What underlies Three Phantoms is a commitment to an evening of West End standard, quality entertainment- which is why in addition to top West End talent, the performers will be accompanied by Anthony Gabriele, Andrew Lloyd Webber's current Musical Director of Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre.

Earl Carpenter, West End star (and a former resident of Sharjah), the producer of Three Phantoms, commented, "To return to Dubai is an absolute delight for me. Three Phantoms is an incredible and unique event that I love performing in and will be such a wonderful treat for us, DUCTAC and anyone who loves The Phantom of the Opera!!"

Three Phantoms promises an evening of intrigue, humour, knockout music and heart-stirring performances worthy of the Phantom - in short, Phantastic!
