It takes you on an unforgettable musical journey from Italy to Ireland, Broadway to the West End.

The Tenors – Live in Concert direct from Europe is truly a 5-star production, a night of West End and international voices in a show not to be missed. Producer and vocalist Barry Potts is no stranger to South Africa after bringing his triumphant production The Sopranos – Live in Concert to Johannesburg. After studying at the Royal Academy of Music, Potts embarked on an international career that began in South Africa, conducting the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra with the hit show Rock Legends that led to further engagements with the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra and The Cape Philharmonic Orchestra before touring the world conducting the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra and the Wellington Sinfonia among others. This led to the chance to work with The Rat Pack show on Broadway in New York USA. Barry was proud to be instrumental in the conception of this hit show at The Joburg Theatre. His return to Johannesburg is very special as this is where his career began. Having also worked with The Osmonds, Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra Jr. and Sir Elton John, Potts decided to journey further into the crossover genre bringing timeless classics to 21st-century audiences.
‘I am so excited to be able to bring The Tenors – Live in Concert to Johannesburg where I can guarantee an evening of amazing music, fun and 5-star entertainment.’
