New Photos Of Brightman's DREAMCHASER PBS Special
An arresting and alluring series of new stage shots from internationally celebrated soprano Sarah Brightman's current DREAMCHASER world tour and the forthcoming PBS showing of it have emerged.
Flanked by back-up dancers and an onstage band, the studio soundstage surrounding Brightman is dominated by a vast visual canvas created by a gigantic screen, allowing for an endless series of unique and eye-grabbing images to appear, develop and envelop the onstage action while Brightman croons the far-out DREAMCHASER tunes, among others.
In addition to material from her new space-themed album DREAMCHASER, Brightman also performs some of her well-known solo hits as well as reprises a tune or two from the legendary musical she herself inspired byway of former husband - the show's composer/producer, Andrew Lloyd Webber - with THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, the world's most successful entertainment of all time.
In our recent InDepth InterView, Brightman and I discussed the distinct possibility of this new DREAMCHASER tour being filmed and also the idea of potentially broadcasting it on PBS, long before either was announced or the tour had even begun. A portion of our conversation follows:
"PC: What do you think of modern HD technology and the ability to record performances with such stunning audio and video quality now? Are you planning on filming and releasing a DVD for the DREAMCHASER tour eventually?
SB: To tell you the truth, I haven't thought about it yet - it is definitely something that could get done as we go along, though. The concepts and what I come up with are always a journey and they carry on and develop over a couple of years, so I tend not to do everything all at once, in a hurry - I like to see how everything is moving and how people are enjoying certain aspects. So, I sort of set things up as we go along."
