Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Birthday Celebration Concert

Andrew Lloyd Webber is streaming a production of one of his musicals on YouTube every week, during coronavirus theatre closures.

The latest in the series is Lloyd Webber’s 50th birthday concert from 1998 starring Michael Ball, Glenn Close, Sarah Brightman, Elaine Page and Antonio Banderas, who came together at the Royal Albert Hall to pay tribute to the composer.

The celebration, in which Sarah Brightman sings a selection of Christine’s tunes from Phantom of the Opera and Close performs songs from Sunset Boulevard, will be available to watch for 48 hours from Friday 1 May at 7pm, on the YouTube channel The Show Must Go On.
