Scottish Born Actress and Singer, Kelly Mathieson made her name in the musical theatre industry when she landed the lead role of Christine Daaé in the Original Production of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ in the West End. Growing up, Kelly trained firstly as a ballet dancer with the prestigious Scottish Ballet Company but decided to focus her career path on classical singing at the Royal College of Music before transitioning into musical theatre where she feels most at home.
During her nearly 3-year award-winning run as Christine Daaé, Kelly took momentum on the concert stage platform performing at the Royal Albert Hall and Royal Concert Hall as a soloist and then onto Cadogan Hall, London where she played Tonia in the UK Premier of ‘Dr Zhivago’. She recently has joined a star-studded cast of singers on a UK tour of Christmas concerts with ‘West End International’, singing with the Royal Scottish Chamber Orchestra and Royal Northern Sinfonia. Kelly recently represented the United Kingdom at EXPO Dubai. At Theatre Royal Drury Lane, West End, London, Kelly joined Comedian and West End star, Jason Manford as his guest soloist, at his Christmas Concert. . On another platform, Kelly has sold out two solo cabarets at London West Ends Cabaret Bar ‘Crazy Coqs’.
Kelly was booked to take her interpretation of Christine Daaé to China, but the pandemic cancelled this tour. This was also joined with playing Eline in Bernstein’s ‘Wonderful Town’ at Toulon Opera House.
Kelly is in the midst of releasing her first solo album signing to Musical Theatre label ‘WestWay Music’.
