Russel Watson: Canzoni d’Amore
8pm, Saturday 20 October Having sold more than seven million albums worldwide, Russell Watson is firmly established as the UK’s best-selling classical crossover artist of all time. To date, his illustrious career has included performances for Her Majesty The Queen, The Pope and two US Presidents. Following a series of sell-out performances in 2015-16, “The People’s Tenor” returns to the stage with his brand-new show, Canzoni d’Amore.

Russell Watson’s career to date has seen some incredible achievements; his debut album ‘The Voice’ held simultaneous number 1 slots in the US and UK (a world first), spending a record breaking 52 weeks at number 1 in the UK. Russell has sold in excess of 7 million albums and won 4 Classical BRITS. He was the first artist to perform at the Kodak Theatre, the home of the Oscars in Los Angeles, and was the only British artist to be invited to perform at the Independence Day celebrations at the White House in July 2012. In 2002 Russell performed at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games, which was televised to over 1 billion people worldwide. Russell’s success has taken him around the world, with performances for some of our greatest figures including Her Majesty The Queen, the late Pope John Paul II (who requested a private performance at The Vatican), former US Presidents Bill Clinton, George Bush & Barack Obama, The Emperor of Japan and the King of Malaysia.

Captivating to watch and enchanting to listen to, Russell Watson continues to wow audiences with his enigmatic and entertaining live performances.
