Musical theatre royalty – and two-time Disney Princess – Lea Salonga is coming to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall with her brand-new tour Dream Again.
Lea Salonga claimed her theatrical crown aged just 18 when she created the role of Kim in the epic musical Miss Saigon in the West End and subsequently on Broadway winning the Olivier and Tony Awards for best actress in a musical. She then went on to be the first actress of Asian descent to play both Eponine and Fantine in Les Misérables on Broadway.
The Dream Again tour will also celebrate the 30th anniversary of Lea recording the iconic Disney love song A Whole New World as Princess Jasmine in Aladdin in 1992. Younger fans will also recognise Lea as the singing voice of Fa Mulan in Mulan and Mulan II – these three films earning her the official title of Disney Legend.
The Lea Salonga: Dream Again tour follows Lea’s single release of the same name last year. The international collaboration brought together composers, musicians and a production team across three continents and five time zones, to help organisations aiding in COVID-19 relief.
Joining Lea will be her brother Gerard Salonga, as musical director. Gerard is the resident conductor of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and a former assistant conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
