World-renowned soprano Sarah Brightman has performed across the globe, from theaters and cathedrals to the Olympics. For her 2019 HYMN World Tour she has partnered with Swarovski crystals to add sparkle to her sets, costumes and to create a signature line of jewelry and accessories for her fans.
As a longtime fan of Swarovski crystals, she was enthusiastic to add an extra dimension of light and brilliance to the stage through a beautiful array of gowns from luxury fashion designers such as Oscar de la Renta, and Marchesa – all adorned with over 600,000 Swarovski crystals.
Known for her love of tiaras and ornate headpieces, Ms. Brightman also co-designed a bespoke tiara with the Swarovski team to reflect what she describes as a “fluid, organic silhouette that evokes everything from a crystallized peacock tail to a forest fern”.
“It’s beautiful because there are a lot of human beings on stage,” Brightman says. “Obviously, we’ve got orchestra and band. And we’ve got all these choir members singing. I wanted to use a huge amount of back light and beautiful light design, which bathed the whole thing. It’s amazing because my music, for whatever reason, makes people think of something very uplifting and very spiritual and it leaves people happy. And this album is particularly like that. So that really is what the tour is.”
Brightman continued, “I called it Hymn not only because one of the songs on the album is called ‘Hymn,’ but when I think of the word, it reminds me of hope, light and all things positive. That was my journey into this album.”
Wherever you catch the show (there are 125 performances staged across five continents to choose from) you’ll be transfixed by the her transcendent 3-octave voice, sparkling costumes and the dazzling facets of each piece of Sarah’s signature collection that will be available to purchase at her concerts or online at http://swarovs.ki/sbcollection. We love the stackable bracelets, as well her two personal favorites: a floral brooch and dragonfly pendant. Look carefully and you’ll see her wearing many of her designs onstage.
From the staging to the costumes to the memorabilia, every stop on Sarah Brightman’s HYMN world tour will be a magical and unforgettably uplifting experience.
