Les Mis­er­ables star to per­form


One of Aus­tralia’s top mu­si­cal the­atre singers is per­form­ing in Palmer­ston North this Fri­day.

Sil­vie Pal­adino has starred as both Epo­nine and Fan­tine from Les Mis­er­ables on Lon­don’s West End and toured Aus­trala­sia in the role of Epo­nine to critical ac­claim.

Sil­vie, who will ap­pear with the Welling­ton Ci­tadel Band at the Sal­va­tion Army, Church Street, has es­tab­lished her­self as one of Aus­tralia’s most ver­sa­tile and tal­ented en­ter­tain­ers over the last 30 years.

Her cred­its also in­clude Jean­nie in Hair, Griz­abella in the Aus­tralian and Asian tour of CATS, Ellen in Miss Saigon, Donna in Mamma Mia!, Rita in Sideshow Al­ley, Anna in The King and I and Florence in Chess.

Her other Aus­tralasian achieve­ments in­clude her one-woman show Sil­vie Pal­adino Sings Streisand and, among her CD ti­tles, she lists On My Own and When You Be­lieve with the Mel­bourne Staff Band of the Sal­va­tion Army.

Sil­vie is a reg­u­lar face to New Zealan­ders singing at the Aus­tralian Rugby League and Foot­ball League Grand Fi­nals, the Box­ing Day Cricket Test and a con­cert in Bei­jing as part of the 2013 Asian Pa­cific Spe­cial Olympics.

She has made reg­u­lar guest ap­pear­ances with sym­phony or­ches­tras in Aus­tralia and per­formed for the­atri­cal com­posers Stephen Schwartz and Stephen Sond­heim.

In July last year Sil­vie per­formed in Lon­don for the 150th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions of the Sal­va­tion Army and, in her visit to Palmer­ston North on July 29, she’ll be ac­com­pa­nied a top New Zealand Sal­va­tion Army band.

Sil­vie per­forms on Fri­day at the Sal­va­tion Army at 7pm. Tick­ets from www.dashtick­ets.co.nz.
