Performing in the 2019 season of From Broadway To La Scala are six acclaimed, contemporary singers including the magnificent award winning lyric coloratura soprano Emma Matthews, greatly loved tenor David Hobson, acclaimed bass-baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes, West End/Broadway star Caroline O'Connor and the brilliant young Australian tenor Alexander Lewis, who recently has won acclaim for his portrayal of Tony in Opera Australia's hugely successful West Side Story, the most popular Handa Opera On Sydney Harbour to date.

They will be joined by emerging artist Genevieve Kingsford, who is fast becoming one of Australia's most sought-after musical theatre discoveries, having already starred in Brigadoon for The Production Company and appeared alongside Anthony Warlow and Gina Riley in Sweeney Todd.

Backed by Australia's finest orchestras, From Broadway to La Scala will transport audiences with a richly entwined repertoire of all time classics, drawn from two of the world's most enduringly popular musical genres.
