An array of performers will come together at the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room to sing the work of British composers, Daniel and Laura Curtis.
The one night only concert will take place on October 14th and features artists including Alexander Hanson (Stephen Ward, Jesus Christ Superstar), Sabrina Aloueche (Les Miserables, We Will Rock You), Rebecca Caine (Phantom Of The Opera), Mark Moraghan (Priscilla Queen of The Desert), Chloe Hart (Hairspray, Wicked), Lucie Jones (X Factor), Charlotte Jaconelli (Britain’s Got Talent) and many other special guests.
Critics describe the music of Daniel & Laura Curtis as “frequently stirring and soaring” (The Public Reviews) with some songs “which could slot into a Richard Rodgers musical”.
The composers are encouraging audiences to experience what the London cabaret scene has to offer, Daniel Curtis said “When tourists come to London from across rest of the UK and the World they are immediately drawn to seeing musicals, but wouldn’t necessarily consider going to see a cabaret show. In New York it is very different, the smaller shows are part of the whole New York experience. The great thing about cabaret is that you actually have a chance to see some of the best performers that the UK has to offer, in a much more intimate setting and at a fraction of the price of a show.”
Discussing the challenge of enticing audiences to experience new music Laura Curtis said; “It can be difficult getting an audience to come and listen to new music as there is always some uncertainty about what they are letting themselves in for. But you can be surprised – many people assume the music will be in a particular style due to the fact that it is Musical Theatre, but we ourselves are examples that this isn’t true, an evening of our music spans numerous genres from gospel and rock to traditional Musical Theatre which could have been written in the 1950’s. And they all tell stories in the same way you’d see a theatrical number performed in a show”.
The Curtis’ latest album, Love on 42nd Street featuring performers such as Lea Salonga, Samantha Barks, Sierra Boggess and Ramin Karimloo reached No.1 in the iTunes Vocal Chart and No.1 in the Amazon Broadway Chart.
The evening will feature music from Love on 42nd Street as well as premiering a number of new songs.
