Biography

Anthony Warlow (born November 18, 1961) in Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia, is an Australian star of opera and musical theatre.

Notable musical roles include lead roles in The Phantom of the Opera, The Secret Garden (as Archibald Craven), Annie, Guys and Dolls, My Fair Lady (as “Henry Higgins”), Jekyll and Hyde (recording only), and Man of La Mancha, as well as a significant supporting role in Les Misérables (as “Enjolras”).

His portrayal of the Phantom of the Opera (in the first Australian production, ca. 1990), a demanding role, vocally, dramatically and physically, is regarded as being among the finest in the world. Critics have been quoted as noting his was the only performance to rival Michael Crawford’s (the original Phantom in the West End and on Broadway) legendary interpretation of the role. At 29 years old, he became the youngest actor to hold the role, a distinction he holds to this day.

In October 2006, it was announced that Anthony will return to the role of the Phantom in the July 2007 production to be launched in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. [1]

His opera roles include major roles in Die Fledermaus (as “Gabriel Eisenstein”), The Magic Flute (as “Papageno”), and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Anthony Warlow was the youngest baritone ever to play the role of “Papageno”, a role which he played for the first time at the age of 21.

    In that one video on YouTube of "Music of the Night" he looks exactly like Mr. 47 from Hitman.

    He is loveliness; I was fortunate enough to meet him twice two weeks ago. Plus he knows about my website and supports my petition. ^_^

    Aww, heart. I don't listen to him nearly as much as I did, say, ten years ago, and that's a bit of a shame. It's nice that my musical interests have since spread far and wide, but sometimes I miss the all-encompassing obsession. He's just loveliness.

    Thought not. Anywho, I'm still top listener, I'm running a neat little Anthony Warlow fan forum that appears to be going well ((despite the paint wars we're having, lol)), and and AND I am the top 5th friend on his MySpace page. WAHOO!
