Sarah Brightman’s streamed Christmas concert will feature a very special guest in the guise of her former husband and Britain’s musical maestro Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.
The two will perform a new arrangement of the Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice song “Christmas Dream” at the concert which will also feature Welsh singer and TV presenter Aled Jones and choir Gregorian. The relatively obscure songs was written for the film The Odessa File in 1974 and first performed by Perry Como.
Brightman and Webber were married from 1984-1990, with the singer serving as a muse during the composer’s early, very prolific career stretch. She starred in original productions of Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Song and Dance, Aspects of Love and Requiem
Sarah Brightman said “This year more than ever, we all need the joy, happiness and magic this season brings, A Christmas Symphony is my way to celebrate this special time with fans and music lovers everywhere.”
Brightman will perform Christmas songs from various eras during the concert, including “Silent Night,” “I Believe In Father Christmas,” “Ave Maria,” “La Luna,” and more.
The streamed event Sarah Brightman: A Christmas Sypmphony will be broadcast on Sunday 20 December 2020 from London’s historic Christ Church in Spitalfields.
