Broadway start Peter Karrie and Melina Moore perform duets from Phantom of the Opera

Opera vets perform Phantom, Les Mis at Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre

Welsh star Peter Karrie boasts an impressive stage resume, starring as The Phantom in London, then successful international productions

Revelstoke audiences will enjoy another first at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre when international theatre star Peter Karrie teams up with coloratura soprano Melina Moore for an evening of duets from Phantom of the Opera and Les Misérables.

Phantom of the Opera Returns  takes the stage on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Welsh stage star Peter Karrie boasts an impressive stage resume, starring as The Phantom in London before taking the show on the road to Toronto, Singapore, Hong Kong and Vancouver.  He was voted the best Phantom by an international fan club.

Karrie also starred as Jean Valjean in a decade-long run of Les Misérables at London’s Palace Theatre.

Argentine-born Melina Moore settled in Vernon after training at the Julliard and performing in New York and abroad.

The duo teamed up for a Southern Interior tour last summer, where Moore starred alongside Karrie as Christine from The Phantom of the Opera.

This year they have revised the performance to include selections from Les Mis, Jesus Christ Superstar and Miss Saigon.

“We want the audience to really be moved by these powerful duets,” Moore told the Times Review. She described the show as “a very intimate concert version” of the stage shows.

“It’s a really powerful, rousing musical experience of some of the most popular Broadway music ever written.”

Moore noted the show sold out and received a great responses from audiences last season.

Many hardcore Broadway fans had seen Karrie perform during his run as the Phantom in Vancouver.

Moore said she wanted the audience to, “be moved by these powerful duets. We really do truly love performing together.”
