Disney legend Lea Salonga to return to Dubai

Fan of iconic Disney tunes from Aladdin and Mulan? You know the voice of Lea Salonga from those popular songs, and you'll soon be able to hear them live in Dubai.

The Tony and Olivier Award winner and proclaimed “Disney Legend” is returning to Dubai Opera for a grand performance after her sold-out show in 2017. She’s bringing back Broadway hits, Disney film favorites, and an exciting array of pop and musical theatre tunes not to be missed.

The singer’s set to perform on Thursday March 5 and Friday March 6, 2020, but tickets to the show are now on sale.

Salonga is a singer and actress who is best known for her Tony Award-winning role in Miss Saigon. In addition to the Tony, she has won Olivier, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards, in the field of musical theatre.

She also starred in the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Once on This Island and will appear this summer in the Hollywood Bowl production of Annie.

Many fans will recognise Salonga as the singing voice of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin and Fa Mulan for Mulan and Mulan II. For her portrayal of the princesses, the Walt Disney Company bestowed her with the honour of “Disney Legend” in August of 2011. Quite the triumph.

“Lea Salonga gave two sold-out and amazing performances at Dubai Opera in 2017 and I am delighted she’s agreed to return in 2020 to once again thrill fans with her incredible talent”, said chief executive of Dubai Opera Jasper Hope.

Prices start at Dhs250, while you can also get 20 percent off VIP, Platinum and Gold Seating until Sunday July 21.

Can't wait that long? You can see the Oscar-winning Gladiator score performed live at Dubai Opera in September this year.
