Experience the loveliest night of the year with Mario Lanza

From humble beginnings as the son of an Italian immigrant Mario Lanza went on to become the first super star of musicals and a legendary singer/songwriter.

Two of Australia's best loved singers, Roger Lemke and Annalisa Kerrigan, have united to deliver a ravishingly beautiful presentation of the music of Mario Lanza and Kathryn Grayson in Mario Lanza - The Loveliest Night of the Year.

Audiences will hear songs from the worlds of opera and popular music immortalised by his magnificent voice destined for greatness on the world stage, as they witness an extraordinary man through his triumphs and tragedy.

Green Room Award winner Roger Lemke will hit the high notes in the role of Mario Lanza and Annalisa Kerrigan, one of ABC's Classic's star artists, will play the role of Kathryn Grayson.

Songs will include With Make Believe, Torna A Surriento, With a Song in My Heart, Ave Maria, Be My Love, Golden Days, The Loveliest Night of the Year, They Didn't Believe Me, I'll Walk with God from This Day On, If You Were Mine and many more.

"Audience members should prepare themselves for a spectacular line-up of hits as we roll out magical song after magical song," says Kerrigan.

"Every song is different. One will inspire, another will cause you to feel sorrow and heartbreak. So audiences can expect to experience an array of emotions as you join us on this incredible musical journey."

Roger has achieved a rare blend of extraordinary success as concert artist, musical theatre and opera singer. Famous for his portrayal of Marcello for Baz Luhrmann's 'La Boheme', as well as Javert in Cameron McIntosh's production of Les Miserables, he has sung with every major orchestra and opera company in Australia.

When asked about Mario, Roger states, "I have sung Lanza's songs all my life, and I believe that it is this sort of music that touches people's hearts - it's a great love of mine."
