Coloratura soprano and local and international diva Melina Moore, and international Broadway and London West End legend, Welsh tenor Peter Karrie, are touring the Okanagan singing all the hits of Phantom of the Opera as well as other selections from Karrie’s best known musical theatre roles, bringing their show to Enderby on Aug. 27.

Karrie played the Phantom in London, Toronto, Vancouver, Singapore and Hong Kong.

“He earned the title of The World’s Most Popular Phantom from the Worldwide Phantom of the Opera Appreciation Society,” said Diana Inselberg, vice-president of the Enderby & District Arts Council, which is presenting the show.

He was made an honorary Canadian citizen upon completing his Phantom role in Vancouver for almost a decade.

Argentine-born and trained at the Juilliard School of Music in New York, Moore has lived in Vernon for almost 20 years. She has performed in opera and Broadway productions, and with symphonies and orchestras across British Columbia. She produces musical theatre productions through her academy, Valley Vocal Arts, a vocal training and performance studio in Vernon. She is also the monthly headlining performer at Sparkling Hill Wellness Resort.

“Together their voices provide a moving, intimate concert experience — not to be missed,” said Inselberg.

Moore and Karrie perform hits from Phantom of the Opera Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Enderby Evangelical Chapel on Mill Street.  Tickets  are $20 for adults, $15 for youth under 18, available at the Courtyard Gallery in Enderby, Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or at the door. For more information, call Inselberg at 250-838-2141.
