The Iron Man of the Mask

Franc D’Ambrosio is a multi-faceted vocalist, best known for his role as the “Phantom” in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera (over 3,000 performances today!) Affectionately known as Phantom’s “The Iron Man of The Mask”, D’Ambrosio was awarded the distinction as the “World’s Longest Running Phantom”. This accomplishment was immortalized in a cemented hand ceremony and Franc retained this title for over a decade.

Early in D’Ambrosio’s career, Paramount Pictures sent five talent scouts on an exhausting two year international search. That search ended when they discovered D’Ambrosio in the chorus of his first Broadway show. Francis Ford Coppola immediately cast D’Ambrosio as Anthony Corleone, the opera singing son of Al Pacino and Diane Keaton in Coppola’s seven time Academy Award nominated film Godfather III. Franc not only had the honor of starring in that film, he also sang the Academy Award winning theme song, “Speak Softly Love”.
