Details of Mario Frangoulis and the Ticket Luck value
A Greek Tenor Mario Frangoulis was born on December 18, 1966 in Rhodesia, and is famous for his song Vincero, Perdero. Frangouliss parents were of Greek Ancestry, which is why at the age of 4, he was sent to live with his maternal aunt Loula in Athens, Greece.
Frangoulis received enough love from his aunt and uncle, and started considering them his real parents. Frangoulis started exploring his singing talent at the age of 8, when he started singing in choirs.
He performed the role of Issachar at the age of eleven in a school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
This came out to be his theoretical debut and afterwards he started getting roles in several other theoretical performances including his role of Master of Ceremonies in Cabaret and the role of Tony in West Side Story.
At the age of 14 Frangoulis received the first prize for his skills of playing a violin that he learned for the past 12 years. Frangoulis didnt pursue his studies after he graduated in 1984 from the Conservatoire, and mainly relied on his musical training that helped him a lot during his opera studies.
The following year Frangoulis took admission at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London for a 3 year professional acting course. He played the role of Puck in A Midsummer Nights Dream, during his last year at the Guildhall School.
The production collaborated with the Royal Shakespeare Company for the Arundel Festival. Frangoulis was offered the role of Marius, after an audition, after Cameron Mackintosh saw him perform the lead role in Orlando, a musical by James McConnel and Kit Hesketh-Harvey.
He was selected for the role of Marius to be performed at the West End Productions of Les Miserables from 1988 till 1989 at the Palace Theatre.
After he finished Les Miserables, Frangoulis went to Italy, after he received a Maria Callas Scholarship for Opera, where he studied under the supervision of tenor Carlo Bergonzi at the Verdi Academy, Busseto.
Later when he graduated after six months, he moved to Rome and performed in an audition for the tenor Alfredo Kraus and conductor Nicola Rescigno.
After being successful in yet another audition he traveled with Kraus around the world as his first private student and learnt the vocal techniques and repertory.
Frangoulis headed back to London in 1995, where during the Covent Garden Festival he played the role of Lun-Tha in a musical by Rogers and Hammerstein, The King and I. His performance in the musical was highly appreciated and received positive reviews on several newspapers.
Frangoulis performed his first solo show, accompanied by Deborah Meyers, in the spring of 1999 at the Iera Odos music hall, performing songs from all over the world. From there he earned his fame as a solo act and soon he was seen performing in his live concert tours in Cyprus and Greece.
Fengari erotevmeno meaning Love Struck Moon in English, was his debut album that was a recording of his live concert. The album was a commercial success and received an official platinum status.
