Anthony Warlow BIO

Anthony Warlow has lit up the musical theatre, opera and concert stage since his professional debut in Benjamin Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1980.

His stellar career has been rich and varied, including Enjolras in the Australian premiere production of Les Miserables; the title role of the Phantom in the record-breaking The Phantom of the Opera; Archie Craven in The Secret Garden; "Daddy" Warbucks in Annie, in Australia and for his 2013 Broadway debut; and his critically-lauded performance as Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. In 2010, Warlow created the role of Dr Yurii Thiago in the Australian premiere of Doctor Zhivago.

In 2015, he starred in Man of La Mancha for the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington for which he won the prestigious Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Actor in a Musical. Later that year, Warlow replaced Kelsey Grammar in the Broadway production of Finding Neverland, playing the roles of Charles Frohman and Captain Hook.
Warlow’s musical theatre career began in 1985 with the London National Theatre’s production of Guys and Dolls. He created the role of Enjolras in the Australian production of Les Miserables, a performance which won him a place on the Grammy Award-winning International Cast recording. Other productions include The Secret Garden, Man of La Mancha, My Fair Lady, Grease the Arena Spectacular, A Little Night Music, and a healthy catalogue of Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic operas.

Warlow’s performance in the title role of The Phantom of the Opera (1990 and 2007-2009), set the seal on his status as Australia’s premier stage performer. He received the prestigious Advance Australia Award for Contribution to Music Theatre in 1991 for his performance, Gold and Platinum sales of his solo albums and in 1998 Anthony was honored by the nation and the National Trust being elected a Living National Treasure.

His concert performances include sharing the stage with Australia's Symphony Orchestras, as well as the London Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2011, he created the role of Dr.Yurii Zhivago in the Australian premiere production of Doctor Zhivago: the Musical, based on the Nobel Prize winning novel by Boris Pasternak, with a score by Lucy Simon (The Secret Garden). Warlow was thrilled to be asked to help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera at London's Royal Albert Hall in October of last year.
