BWW TV Exclusive: Swedish Superstar Peter Joback Joins Broadway's THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Get ready to meet Broadway's newest Phantom - Peter Jöback! Jöback joins the show after donning the mask in a successful run in the West End production. The Swedish superstar was given a warm welcome by his fellow cast members - watch the exclusive video below!
For 25 years, this has been the Broadway musical all others are measured against. The timeless story, the unforgettable score, an undeniable obsession that could never die.
Peter Jöback was awarded a Swedish Tony for creating the role of Robert in Björn Ulvaeus' and Benny Andersson's musical Kristina, Peter was brought to London by Cameron Mackintosh to play Chris in Miss Saigon and later Michael in the original cast of The Witches of Eastwick. He received his second Swedish Tony as the Emcee in Cabaret. Peter has sold over one million albums, including the best-selling Swedish albums of 2006 and 2008, plus Scandinavia's best-selling Christmas album of all time. He's been nominated for three Swedish Grammy Awards and two of his TV specials have been nominated for the Silver Rose at the Rose d'Or Festival. In 2010, he performed at the Royal concert for Crown Princess Victoria's wedding. Peter's album La Vie, L'Amour, La Mort was accompanied by a 30-minute film with Peter at the helm of creative production. His upcoming album is I Love Musicals, which was also the name of his sold-out arena tour last year.
Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
The musical opened at Her Majesty's Theatre on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles, and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. Now in its 25th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End, after more than 10,000 performances.
