Lanza Sings Again

Presented as part of Music in the Morning

Lanza Sings Again is the incredible life story and absolute hits of Mario Lanza

03 Apr – 03 Apr


Lanza Sings Again is the incredible life story and absolute hits of Mario Lanza one of the greatest tenors of our time… Songs like “Be My Love”, “Because Your Mine”,  "La Donna E Mobile”, "Strangers In Paradise”, "Drink Drink”, "O Sole Mio”, "The Loveliest Night Of The Year”,  "You’ll Never Walk Alone”, and "Granada”,  are just some of the hits that will be sung in this production…

But to do a production such as this you need the right Voices and star Tenor Roy Best will be leading the show singing all the songs in Lanza’s original Keys. Roy has had an incredible rise in Australian show business from being a finalist in ABC TV Oppourtunity OZ to recordings with ABC Classics to playing principal roles with The Victorian Opera and currently ongoing guest artist with the Australian Pops Orchestra. 

Joining Roy will be international Soprano Alison Jones who will play the role of Kathryn Grayson who was Mario Lanza’s preferred Soprano and they starred together in many films. Alison has had a stellar career more so in Europe and The UK. Alison has played leading roles with The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company in the savoy theatre in London, an honour rarely bestowed on an Australian Soprano. Since settling back in Australia Alison has played leading roles for The Victorian Opera and The Melbourne Opera Companies.

Chris McKenna will be narrating the fascinating life story of Mario Lanza who had such an enormous career and incredibly died at the age of 38…all this will be accompanied beautifully on the piano by International Concert Pianist Len Vorster

This brand new production coming from one of Australia’s busiest and most successful production Company’s Promac Australia, will be packed with great highlights of the man once dubbed the greatest Tenor in the world Mario Lanza.
