John Cudia holds the distinct honor of being the first and only actor to have performed both as the Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera and Jean Valjean in Les Misérables on Broadway. John’s most recent Broadway run counted him as only the 12th performer to play the Phantom in its historic, record-breaking 30 plus years. John played Jean Valjean at the Marriott Theater in Chicago where his performance earned him the Joseph Jefferson Award for “best actor in a musical.” John proudly made his Broadway debut in Les Misérables and enjoyed a long and successful relationship with both Les Misérables and The Phantom of the Opera. John’s third Broadway credit was as cover to Juan Peron in Evita with Ricky Martin as Che. John toured the United States and Canada as the Phantom and has also played the role of Raoul on Broadway and the North American tour. John has helped develop new works for the theatre with Roundabout Theatre, the Banff Theatre Centre, Paper Mill Playhouse, and composers Jonathon Dove, Frank Wildhorn, and Maury Yeston. John is equally at home on Opera, Theater, and Concert stages. A lyric tenor, he proudly made his Lyric Opera of Chicago debut as Curly in their production of Oklahoma! for Vancouver Opera, John most recently sang Count Danilo in The Merry Widow. Previously for Vancouver Opera, he sang Cassio in Otello and Juan Peron in Evita. For Indianapolis Opera, he created the role of Dr. Woodly in the World Premiere of Happy Birthday Wanda June by Richard Auldon Clark with Libretto by Indiana’s own Kurt Vonnegut. For Lyric Opera of the North, he sang the Duke in Rigoletto and Alfredo in La Traviata.
Franc D’Ambrosio is best known for his impressive portrayal of the lead role in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Award-winning musical, The Phantom of the Opera. Affectionately known as the “Iron Man of the Mask,” Franc held the title of “The World’s Longest-Running Phantom” for more than a decade after bringing over five million theatre-goers to their feet in a six and one-half year run. Franc’s resume also includes an Academy Award-nominated film when he played the opera-singing son of Al Pacino and Diane Keaton in the seven-time Academy Award-nominated film, Godfather III. He also sang the Academy Award-winning theme song of the movie, “Speak Softly Love,” for both the film and the soundtrack. His performances of the theme song have garnered over one million hits on YouTube. Having previously studied with Luciano Pavarotti and at the famed Vocal Academy of Lucca in Italy, Franc quickly cultivated a passion for his Italian roots and culture. Franc founded the Lorenzo Malfatti Accademia Vocale di Lucca, where he teaches his craft to young opera students each summer. Franc also lectures at music schools throughout the United States and Europe, including conservatories in Spoleto and Florence, Italy, and the famed Juilliard School in New York City. Franc has toured extensively throughout the world with his critically-acclaimed one-man shows.
