HAMILTON Star Christine Allado Holds Send-Off Concert in Manila, 9/8
Manila, Philippines--In behalf of Saint Paul University Hospital in Surigao City, Christine Allado, West End actress and Saint Paul College alumna, will be featured in a concert titled "Send-Off to West End" at Meralco Theatre in Pasig City on Friday, September 8, at 8 p.m.
Christine is set to star as Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds in the original London production of "Hamilton: An American Musical," which opens in early December this year at the Victoria Palace Theatre in London.
Christine is an emerging musical talent, who made a name for herself as a uniquely proficient artist that has a voice that fuses her classical soprano roots with a contemporary spin of pop and jazz. She is a triple threat, a true all-rounder who has appeared on stages and broadcasts all over Asia as well as the UK.
Her roles have included Vanessa "In The Heights" (2016) at the King's Cross Theatre; Maria "West Side Story" (2016) for the BBC 60th-anniversary documentary; Ursula, "Sweet Charity" (2016) at the Royal Exchange Theatre; Understudy Lorene "From Here to Eternity" (2013) at the Shaftesbury Theatre, and Understudy Imelda Marcos "Here Lies Love" (2014) at the National Theatre.
She has previously toured with beloved classical tenor Andrea Bocelli in his "Cinema: World Tour," which led her to perform for several tens of thousands of people in arenas and stadiums across the world. She is also an original member of the girl band "Zyrah," a classical crossover group with an epic cinematic influence.
She also recently sang the Philippine National Anthem at the Pacquiao-Horn fight in Brisbane, Australia.
Christine trained at the Royal Academy of Music, where she received a post-graduate degree in Music Theatre.
