Sarah Brightman Career Retrospective: The 1980s

Join Sarah on Thursdays for a look back to beautiful memories from throughout her spectacular 4-decades-long career.

This week … it’s the 1980s! Sarah joined the London cast of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s then all-new musical ‘Cats’ in 1981 and began performing in a variety of other musicals, including ‘The Pirates of Penzance,’ ‘Masquerade’ and Lloyd Webber’s ‘Song and Dance.’ Her beautiful performances inspired the composer to write his unforgettable, critically-acclaimed ‘Requiem’ mass. In 1986, Sarah began her defining role as Christine DaaĆ© in the epic musical ‘The Phantom of the Opera.’ Sarah toured with production throughout England, Canada and the US all while releasing the single “Anything But Lonely” and two solo albums: ‘The Trees They Grow So High’ and ‘The Songs That Got Away.’
