VIP tickets in Rows AAA & AA include an exclusive meet and greet with Mario after the show!
Mario Frangoulis is a modern-day classical cross-over tenor with the ability to interpret music from all genres, whether this is classical, pop, jazz. “My greatest love is opera and classical music,” Mario says, “I always sang, from an early age. I knew I had a good voice, but I didn’t know I had an operatic voice.” Mario didn’t believe opera singers sounded young or modern enough for his style until he saw a performance of Carmen in Athens with José Carreras and Agnes Baltsa, and his life was forever changed.
Despite his intensive training, Frangoulis is anything but a conventional operatic singer. He won the role of Tony in West Side Story in its first performances at Milan’s Teatro alla Scala. He has appeared in films and on television, in concerts and even in epic presentations of Greek tragedies. In his native Greece, Frangoulis has been acclaimed in everything from the role of high-school hero, Danny Zuko in Grease, to numerous lead roles in ancient Greek tragedies – as god Dionysios in Euripides’ Bacchae, Promitheus, Achilles, plays performed in ancient theatres as Epidaurus and the Herod Atticus Theatre. In film , his latest roles was that of Alfred Drake from Kiss Me Kate in the film De-Lovely, performing the song “So In Love” with Lara Fabian.
Since 1999 when the tenor signed with Sony Classical New York he has had a parallel recording career of both his international releases and his Greek albums with Sony Classical Greece. His first personal album “Fengari Erotevmeno” became triple platinum in Greece, and in 2002 marked the release of his first international album “Sometimes I Dream” and then “Follow Your Heart” in 2004. Since then Mario has released over 15 personal albums including studio and live performances, singing in over 5 different languages and has many recorded many tracks with other artists. His latest album “Beautiful Things” – the title song written by Canadian composer Stephan Moccio, features duets with acclaimed actress-singer Vanessa Williams and tenor Vittorio Grigolo.
