January 17: The Australian-born is known as “Australia’s own Bocelli” and The Phantom of Opera star.
It is amazing to know about all those people, who in ways, more than one, prove what they truly possess as great talents in their respective industries. Knowing more about them instils the hearts of others with more hope, positivity, and motivation, ultimately inspiring them to take over their dreams and fulfil their goals. The world of arts is a world of its own, which so far across the world has given birth to many such creative souls. We couldn’t help but notice the rise of one such incredible creative being named Paul Ettore Tabone, who believed in his artistic visions and thus was able to portray the same in opera as a lyric tenor opera singer and on stage as a musical theatre actor.
Paul Ettore Tabone’s creative journey began while he was only nine years of age, where he excelled at playing the piano and working around voice and music theory. He graduated from CQ University’s Conservatorium of Music, attaining a Bachelor’s of Music Theatre in 2009, and made his solo opera debut in Opera Queensland’s world premiere production of The Dirty Apple. One thing led to another, and Paul in 2011 got the opportunity to perform the role “Squelch” in Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to the much acclaimed The Phantom of The Opera. It was the year after that he decided to move to Italy for studying as a lyric tenor and later even relocated to London to perform in The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the original production on West End in 2016; as “Ubaldo Piangi.”
Even during the ongoing global health crisis, he released his first studio album titled “This is Me,” taking people onto a journey with him, flexing his Australian and Italian heritage as well as his musical influences. Remembering one of his childhood memories, Paul said that he once with his nana went to watch Phantom at the Ingham Picture Theatre in 2006, and watching the same, he told to himself to be a part of the show. Last year in September, he brought Piangi to the Sydney Opera House in Cameron Mackintosh’s new original Phantom, for which he was too thrilled for getting to play the same role but in a unique, exciting setting.
He says that he is excited to tour regional Australia to promote his album, focusing mainly on regional Queensland. This year, he will be performing at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne arts centre in the Sellout production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of The Opera.”
