Celebrate the festive season with Marina Prior, leading lady of musical theatre.
One of Australia’s most loved stars, Marina Prior’s name is synonymous with the Christmas Carol Season. She’s starred an amazing 27 times in the annual Carols by Candlelight concert televised by Channel 9.
“Carols by Candlelight is such a cherished part of Christmas for so many Australians, and I have been honoured to be part of it for many years,” she said.
Join Marina for a special matinee concert of festive music, all your favourite Christmas carols and some of the music and songs she’s well known for.
Best known for her lead role in The Phantom of the Opera which she played for over three years. She has also performed with international stars including Richard Harris and José Carreras.
Marina has played the lead role in productions including The Pirates of Penzance, Cats, Les Miserables, Die Fledermaus, West Side Story, Showboat, The Merry Widow, The Witches of Eastwick, Annie Get Your Gun, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Guys & Dolls and Mary Poppins amongst many others.
Marina’s recordings include Leading Lady (which reached platinum status), Aspects of Andrew Lloyd Webber (which reached gold status and for which she was nominated for an ARIA award), Somewhere – the Songs of Sondheim and Bernstein and, more recently, Both Sides Now, Encore and Christmas Candlelight.
