World's Biggest Selling Soprano

A pioneer of the classical crossover genre, Ms. Brightman is known as the world’s biggest selling soprano of all time with global sales surpassing 30 million units.

She is renowned for possessing a vocal range of over three full octaves and for her impassioned stage and film performances.

Ms. Brightman has received more than 180 gold and platinum awards in over 40 countries.

Broadway actress

In 1981, Ms. Brightman made her West End musical theatre debut in Cats and met Andrew Lloyd Webber.

She went on to star in several Broadway musicals, including The Phantom of the Opera, where she originated the role of Christine Daaé.

She was also the first artist to have been invited to perform the official theme songs at the Olympic Games on two occasions.

The first was at the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Games which was followed 16 years later by a performance at the opening ceremony in Beijing.

Ms. Brightman recently accepted the UNESCO nomination to be an “Artist for Peace” Ambassador for her “commitment to humanitarian and charitable causes.”
