COURTESY Seabourn: London, June 14, 2022 – Seabourn is delighted to announce that Sarah Brightman, the world’s best-selling Soprano and Godmother of Seabourn Encore, will be reuniting with her ship for an “Intimate Evening of Music and Conversation” during Seabourn Encore’s seven-day Aegean & Turkish Treasures itinerary, sailing roundtrip from Athens August 14-21, 2022.
Brightman will entertain one performance in the ship’s Grand Salon, followed by an intimate conversation about her singing, theatrical career and musical accomplishments. In January 2017, Brightman served as godmother of Seabourn Encore and named the ship in a lavish ceremony in Singapore.
Brightman, the world’s best-selling Soprano and UNESCO Artist for Peace Ambassador, has amassed sales of more than 30 million, receiving awards in over 40 countries. She originated the role of Christine Daaé in the world-renowned The Phantom of the Opera on both West End and Broadway stages and has performed at such prestigious events including the Concert for Diana, The Kennedy Center Honors and the Barcelona and Beijing Olympic Games. Sarah’s albums Eden, La Luna, Harem, Symphony and Dreamchaser were each chart-topping Billboard hits and were all accompanied by world tours. Her most recent full length studio album HYMN was released in 2018 and debuted at #1 on the Classical and Classical crossover Billboard charts. The HYMN world tour began in South America in September 2018 and concluded in her hometown of London, England, in November 2019. Brightman has been recognized for her outstanding contribution to music and theatre with a ‘STAR’ on the world-renowned, majestic Hollywood Walk of Fame, in addition to receiving an Honorary Doctor of Arts (Hon DArt). In October 2022, Sarah will entertain her first exclusive 3-night Las Vegas engagement at The Venetian Resort® with “A Starlight Symphony…An Evening with Sarah Brightman” before taking her annual holiday tour “A Christmas Symphony” internationally at the end of 2022.
Seabourn’s “Intimate Evening of Music & Conversation with Sarah Brightman” event will be the highlight of many experiences for guests sailing on the Seabourn Encore voyage. The voyage will also include stops at the Greek island of Syros, the ancient town of Rhodes, Fethiye in Turkey, picturesque yacht harbor Bodrum, beautiful Santorini and finally the historic yachtsman’s paradise of Spetses.
