At the age of 17, Frangoulis was discovered by legendary producer, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, and offered the role of Marius in Les Miserables in London's West End.

Frangoulis is the winner of the Maria Callas Prize, the Pavarotti Scholarship and has been mentored by opera greats Carlo Bergonzi and Marilyn Horne. His powerful vocals and passionate performing style earned Frangoulis the honor of being chosen as the ONLY private student of acclaimed tenor, Alfredo Kraus. After traveling the world with Kraus, Frangoulis continued his studies at the Julliard School of Music in New York.
