Franc D'Ambrosio, best known as the "Phantom" in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award winning musical, "The Phantom Of The Opera," was awarded the distinction as the "World's Longest Running Phantom." Currently touring extensively throughout the U.S., Europe and South America, he returns to Port Ludlow for its Season Finale. This time he presents another of his critically acclaimed one-man shows, "Franc D'Ambrosio's Hollywood Songs of The Silver Screen."
D'Ambrosio's resume also includes an Academy Award nominated film, an Emmy Award nominated television show, a four-time Tony nominated Broadway show, two Grammy considerations, and a National Theatre Award nomination.
Early in his career, Francis Ford Coppola immediately cast D'Ambrosio as the opera-singing son of Al Pacino in Coppola's seven-time Academy Award nominated film "Godfather III," where he sang the Academy Award winning theme song, "Speak Softly Love" (Brucia la Terra) both in the film and on the original soundtrack.
D'Ambrosio caught the eye of Barry Manilow, who selected him to create and star as the male lead, "Tony," in the pre-Broadway tour of "Copacabana."
A frequent guest artist with many major American orchestras and symphonies in their pop series, D'Ambrosio was chosen by the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra to star in their New Years Eve Spectacular heralding in 2009. With the success of his national and international tours, he has joined the ranks of the famed Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman as only a handful of Phantom alumni to successfully crossover to solo careers.
