Join us for this special benefit concert for Caramoor!
Olivier-nominated actress Sierra Boggess reinvented the role of Christine in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera for Broadway, West End, and televised 25th-Anniversary concert productions, earning accolades from the composer himself, who declared “she’s the best, the best Christine certainly.” She made her Broadway debut as Ariel in Disney’s The Little Mermaid, receiving Drama Desk and Drama League nominations and the Broadway.com Audience Award for “Favorite Female Breakthrough Performance.” She also reprised the role of Christine in Love Never Dies, the critically acclaimed sequel to The Phantom of the Opera, for which she was nominated for an Olivier Award. The Los Angeles Times has praised her for “crystalline singing and gameness for comedy.”
This is a benefit to support Caramoor’s music programming throughout the year. All but $50 of each ticket is tax-deductible.
Caramoor thanks The Adela and Lawrence Elow Fund for The Great American Songbook: 1900 to 1960 for preserving and sustaining classic American songs through live performances.
