Lea Salonga to return to Dubai Opera


DUBAI – Multi-award winning singer and actress Lea Salonga will return to the Dubai Opera in March 2020 following her successful Dubai debut in 2017.

Salonga will take the stage for a two-day performance from March 5 to 6, 2020. The Disney legend is set to dazzle audiences with beloved Broadway hits and movie greats, including songs from Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Aladdin and Mulan.

The Tony and Olivier Award winning star is known across the world for her powerful voice and perfect pitch.

Before lending her voice to the Disney songs “A Whole New World” in Aladdin and “Reflections” in Mulan, Salonga had already created history in Broadway by taking the role of Kim in the musical, Miss Saigon, which won her the Olivier and Theatre World Awards, and made her the first Asian to win a Tony Award.

She was also the first Asian actress to play the roles of Eponine and Fantine in the Broadway musical Les Miserables.

Her 2019 The Human Heart Tour saw sold-out audiences and record-breaking sales across North America. On Broadway, Salonga most recently starred in the 2018 Broadway revival of Once on This Island as the Goddess of Love, Erzullie. The show’s return to the Broadway stage earned a Tony Award for “Best Revivial of a Musical” and also garnered Salonga and the cast a Grammy nomination for “Best Musical Theatre Album”.
