Mark Vincent – A Tribute to Mario Lanza

By

Mark Vincent

Singing from the age of 15, Mark Vincent has gone on to become one of Australia’s most beloved tenors, having released nine consecutive #1 ARIA Classical Crossover Albums, earning accolades both nationally and internationally.

Vincent’s last album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, contains the ground breaking ‘virtual duet’ of “Because You’re Mine” with the Hollywood legend. The ‘duet’ made headlines and received the patronage of Mario Lanza’s daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recoding of the ‘virtual duet’ and said, “I’m pleased to allow my father’s recoded voice to be joined on this historic recording by the exciting young tenor, Mark Vincent.”

Like many other tenors, Mark discovered Mario Lanza through the film, The Great Caruso. Mark describes that moment, saying, “Throughout the whole movie I was in awe and struck by the incredible beauty of operatic singing and the urgency and intensity of his voice. It has been a life-long dream of mine to record an album as a tribute to an artist who was an inspiration to many modern singers including The Three Tenors, Andrea Bocelli, and even Elvis Presley. I am so proud to be the first Australian tenor to have recorded this album and tour this show across Australia.”

Released by Sony Music Australia, Tribute debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and at #1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Charts. The album went on to be the highest selling ARIA Classical Crossover album of 2017.

Fans can expect an intimate evening with Mark Vincent performing a rich repertoire of songs and arias made popular by the great Italian-American tenor and actor Mario Lanza including “Because You’re Mine”, “Be My Love”, The Loveliest Night of the Year” and “Nessun Dorma” to name a few.

There is no doubt this show will sell out – book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!!

The Wharf Revue 2019

Back with a bang

The all-singing, all-dancing, side-splittingly funny solution to all the world’s problems returns for another year of satirical genius.

The West is crumbling, democracy is besieged and the world is run by morons with funny hair. You have to laugh. And that’s exactly what The Wharf Revue delivers. The indefatigable team is back once more to dig through the year’s political dirt and unearth comedy gold.

From the movers to the shakers, from the winners to the losers, the stage will be filled with uncanny impressions of the year’s most memorable characters and the moments they’d prefer to forget.

Stalwart performer Drew Forsythe returns with special triple-threat guests including the hilarious Simon Burke. The choreography is tight, the wigs are loose, the punchlines are loaded. Everything is ready for a big night of laughter and mayhem.
