A DISNEY princess is set to take to the stage in Brighton.

Lea Salonga, the voice of Disney princesses Jasmine and Mulan, has announced a new tour, entitled Dream Again.

The Olivier and Tony Award-winning actress first performed in the West End at the age of 18, as Kim in Miss Saigon and went on to become the first actress of Asian descent to play both Eponine and Fantine in Les Misérables on Broadway.

Lea is now returning to the country which launched her career with a new tour – including a performance at the Brighton Dome on Sunday, June 26, 2022.

Dream Again follows Lea’s single release of the same name last year.

The tour will celebrate the 30th anniversary of Lea recording the Disney love song A Whole New World as Princess Jasmine in Aladdin in 1992.

Ahead of the UK-wide tour, Lea said: “I owe the UK audiences and fans so much of my success, after they took me to their hearts as Kim in Miss Saigon – which I will always be so grateful for.”

Joining Lea for the first time on stage in the UK will be her brother, conductor and orchestrator Gerard Salonga, as musical director.

Gerard is the resident conductor of the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and a former assistant conductor of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.

Lea added: “My first ever UK tour was in 2019 and it was a truly wonderful experience. I am now even more excited to return in 2022 – after such a long time unable to travel or to perform – especially with Gerard joining me as musical director.

“Returning to the stage and to international touring will be an absolute thrill and I am so excited to get back to the UK, to meet fans again and to perform some of my all-time favourite songs.”

The Philippines-born performer also featured on the US TV series Great Performances on PBS – which celebrated Broadway performers in a special solo concert filmed live from the Sydney Opera House in 2019.

Away from the stage, Lea is a judge on the Philippines’ version of The Voice and has sold 19 million albums worldwide – making her one of the best-selling Filipina artists of all time.

Tickets for the Brighton show go on sale on Friday, September 25.
