Angel of music: Soprano Sarah Brightman soars at the Smith Center

Sarah Brightman has always had an ethereal quality about her. Her soaring, crystal-clear soprano first graced the stage in 1981 when she made her West End debut in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats.” But it was in 1986, in the original role of Christine Daae in “The Phantom of the Opera,” that the world became smitten. Brightman’s 1996 “Time to Say Goodbye” duet with Andrea Bocelli remains one of the best-selling singles of all time, and she has amassed more than 180 gold and platinum records in 38 countries.
Brightman makes a stop at The Smith Center on March 3 in support of her 15th studio album “Hymn,” a collection of spiritual-inspired music. Joining the soprano for an otherworldly evening of music
are multiplatinum tenor Vincent Niclo and countertenor Narcis.
