LLANELLI opera fans are looking forward to a performance from a local star next month. John Owen-Jones will be performing at Y Ffwrnes on Thursday, December 7, from 7.30pm.
Born in Llanelli and brought up in Burry Port, John trained in acting at London’s Central School of Speech and Drama and, after a varied career so far, is probably best known for his portrayals of the iconic leading characters in The Phantom of The Opera and Les Miserables.
John has performed extensively in other theatre productions throughout the UK and he has appeared on television and radio numerous times. He has performed as a soloist in concerts all over the world.
John has released six solo albums. The independently released ‘Hallelujah’ (2006) and, on the Sain Records label, ‘John Owen-Jones’ (2009), ‘Unmasked’ (2011), and ‘Rise’ 2015, and two compilation albums, ‘Bring Him Home’, and the Japan-only compilation ‘Music of the Night’.
