London’s West End and New York’s Broadway are the two world capitals of the musical. With forty theatres each, staging commercial productions of the highest level, they are both major tourist attractions and together attract a total of almost 30 million visitors a year. Production is non-stop, with multiple performances each day, and a successful show can remain at the same theatre for decades. Musical is a very popular but complex and demanding genre that demands excellent singers/actors. Accompanied by the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra, four experienced soloists will sing a selection of well-known extracts from musicals, including several legendary hits. The orchestra will be conducted by Robert Purvis, who in addition to his many years of experience conducting musicals has also collaborated a number of times with Italian opera companies.
