Absolute Opera, in association with Bill Elms, presents a series of musical theatre shows at the Epstein Theatre in Liverpool this October.

Matinee Musical Classics and Music of the Night come to the Hanover Street venue October 20.

The shows will star Liverpool classical tenor Roy Locke, as well as a West End guest star to be announced in coming weeks.

Locke played The Phantom in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom Of The Opera worldwide in three different productions.

Matinee Musical Classics promises an afternoon of singalong classics from "theatre’s golden age" while Music Of The Night is an evening of the West End and Broadway musicals including Les Misérables, West Side Story, The Lion King and Phantom.
