Musical theatre and international recording superstar Sarah Brightman leads a lavish new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece.
Sunset Boulevard weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Having been discarded by Hollywood with the advent of ‘talkies’, legendary silent movie star Norma Desmond is tortured by her longing for a return to the big screen. When she meets struggling Hollywood screenwriter Joe Gillis in a dramatic chance encounter, their subsequent passionate and volatile relationship leads to an unforeseen and tragic conclusion.
Norma Desmond is one of musical theatre’s greatest roles and it requires a true legend to fill her shoes. Sarah Brightman is the iconic artist who originated the role of Christine in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera both in the West End and on Broadway. Since then, she has become the world’s best-selling soprano, topping the charts across the world with global sales of 30 million units, more than 180 gold and platinum awards in over 40 countries and over 1 billion streams worldwide.
This historic theatre event marks her first theatrical role in almost three decades.
This brand-new production features stunning sets and costumes, evoking the glamourous Golden Age of Hollywood. The thrillingly atmospheric score features the hits ’With One Look’, ‘The Perfect Year’, and the anthemic ‘As If We Never Said Goodbye’.
Sunset Boulevard is the musical event of the year. Don’t miss this strictly limited season at Melbourne’s Princess Theatre from May 2024.
Please note that Sarah Brightman will not be appearing at Tuesday evening or Wednesday matinee performances.
