Sarah Brightman's West End debut was at the age of 13 in "I and Albert". She originated the role of Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera in London and in New York. She was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for the role in 1988.

On the West End she also appeared in Cats and Nightingale, and on Broadway she was a replacement in Aspects of Love in 1990.

Sarah married composer Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1984 until 1990.
