The singer is releasing his debut album this spring.
Having starred in The Phantom of the Opera for the past four years as Ubaldo Piangi, the tenor singer is getting ready to release his first album.
Talking about the news and reflecting on the last year, Paul Ettor Tabone said: “In the shadow of lockdown and theatre closures, I was getting withdrawal symptoms and missing singing, performance and the audiences and for me, this became a time to reflect on my journey and the burning need to make that first album.”
From growing up on a sugarcane and pumpkin farm in North Queensland, Australia to becoming a well known opera and musical theatre tenor, Tabone fell in love with music from an early age. He followed his ambitions to study music, graduating from CQ University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Music Theatre degree and today he is being dubbed, ‘Australia’s Andrea Bocelli’.
As his career progressed, he was invited by Signora Nicoletta Mantovani (mentor and wife of the late renowned tenor Luciano Pavarotti), to perform as one of four tenors at the world-renowned Verona Arena sharing the stage with operatic icons, Andrea Bocelli, Placido Domingo, Jose Carraras and Ambrogio Maestri to an audience of 20,000 in memoriam to Luciano Pavarotti for the 100th year birthday celebration of the Arena.
Talking further about the album Paul said: “Every song on the album reflects who I am and where I come from and the people and places that matter to me. I’ve lived and sang all over the world, but I’m close to my roots and have a deep love and respect for the land, the earth and my heritage, Australia’s heritage. It’s important that my album reflects this.”
