Joseph Claus

Passarino/Hairdresser (Il Muto)

Training: PGDip in musical theatre at the Royal Academy of Music, having previously gained a BA (Hons) in music from Bristol University. Whilst training, Joseph was delighted to be asked to be a soloist for the BBC Performing Arts Fund Chorus at Stephen Sondheim’s 80th Birthday Prom (Royal Albert Hall 2010, broadcast live on BBC 2 and Radio 3).

Theatre: Joseph’s West End debut in The Phantom of the Opera in 2010. He enjoyed two years with the company and had the privilege of being part of the show’s 25th anniversary celebration at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011 (also CD and DVD).

Other: Joseph has performed on some of the world’s largest cruise liners, from the Mediterranean to China, as a headlining guest entertainer with the male vocal group Viva Voce, part of Veritas Entertainment. He was last seen in B & Q’s Christmas commercial campaign and will be appearing in the London premiere of Love Beyond at Wembley Arena in October 2014.

Joseph is delighted to rejoin the company of Phantom, having had such a wonderful experience the first time around. His thanks go to his family and Terri, for their continuing love and support.
