An Evening with Lea Salonga
Back by popular demand, Lea Salonga returns to Calgary for a one-night-only performance of her best-loved songs. Whether you know her as a Philippines pop idol, a Disney princess, or as a Tony Award-winning Broadway star, Lea Salonga's career proves she has the talent to do it all!
Though many people know her as the voice of Fa Mulan from Disney’s animated movie, and as Jasmine in Aladdin, she is highly acclaimed on stage as well, from her Tony Award-winning performance in Miss Saigon to making history as the first Asian actor to play Eponine in Les Misérables. Lea Salonga’s star power doesn’t end there – after sold-out concerts around the globe including the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Sydney Opera House, Lea is now bringing her incomparable voice once again to Calgary fans.
Join Arts Commons Presents and the BD&P World Stage series for a magical evening. You don’t want to miss it!
