FROM BROADWAY TO HOLLYWOOD is a symphonic concert that will go through the history of the most classic musical theater on Broadway and Hollywood musical movies – melodies from SINGING IN THE RAIN, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MISERABLES OR THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, will hand in hand with more modern titles such as A STAR IS BORN, THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, MOULIN ROUGE OR THE BRIDGES OF MADISON – with musical arrangements made especially for the occasion.
In the words of Alfonso Marriedmusical director – “we will hear never-before-heard versions of these titles from the best voices in musical theater where the focus will be placed above all else on the incredible vocal quality of our artists and the richness of the music that we will perform together with the ROSS. I am proud to be able to bring to Seville great artists who can normally only be enjoyed in the West End with whom I have great friendships and who highly value the sense of solidarity in this unique concert.”
This concert also has a very human and supportive character, since all the benefits collected from the box office and sponsorships will go to collaborate in the support and dissemination of the work of the AFAR National Associationfrom Alcalá de Guadaíra, the city of Alfonso’s birth, “whose purpose is to improve the quality of life of people who are socially vulnerable or at risk of social exclusion, in order to promote their social inclusion” (https://www.afar.es )
