‘Three Phantoms’ has already performed to over 16,000 people in the last year at the Chichester Festival Theatre, Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, to name just a few, winning five star plaudits and has been described as “the best gala evening of musical theatre you are ever likely to see!”
This spectacular production features former Phantoms; Earl Carpenter (We Will Rock You, Les Misérables, Evita, Sunset Boulevard, Phantom of the Opera); Glyn Kerslake (Martin Guerre, Les Misérables, Miss Saigon, Scrooge, Phantom of the Opera) and the current Phantom of Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new tour, John Owen-Jones who between them have clocked up over 5,000 performances in the title role of Andrew Lloyd-Webber’s eponymous musical, The Phantom of the Opera in the UK.
Together they will perform and host an evening that in essence celebrates what has become the world’s most successful entertainment phenomenon, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’. But no musical gets left untouched as the entire evening comprises of songs from shows that they love and have ultimately been involved with.
Shân Cothi is one ofWales’ best known faces and voices. Her talents range from presenting to singing to judging, and more recently, even horse racing!
Her career as a professional soloist began in 1995, the year in which she won the prestigious Blue Ribbon at the National Eisteddfod. Shân is an extremely versatile performer and has performed an incredible range of music styles, from opera to oratorio, music theatre to traditional Welsh songs and a host of contemporary projects working with respected musicians form different musical genres. Shân’s explanation is that it is a natural instinct which enables her to be so passionate about performing and after many years of wondering which direction to take as a singer, she has realised, with the help of her coach Ian Baar, that this ability to change styles makes her stand out from other performers.
In 2000, Shân performed the role of Carlotta in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s West End Production of The Phantom of the Opera for fifteen months in Her Majesty’s Theatre,London. Subsequently in 2005, Shân made her television acting debut playing the role of Davina Roberts in the highly successful drama series ‘Con Passionate’ for S4C and was nominated in the ‘Best Newcomer’ category at the 2006 BAFTA Cymru Awards. In 2010 Shân released her solo album ‘Passione’.
