Silvie Paladino has established herself as one of Australia’s most versatile and talented entertainers.
During 1989, Silvie was offered the role of Eponine in LES MISERABLES, an exciting opportunity for an eighteen year old. She continued performing the role for a further twelve months touring Australia and New Zealand to critical acclaim. She received the same recognition in 1992 when she accepted an invitation to perform the role of Eponine on the West End in the London production of LES MISERABLES. In 1997, Silvie was invited to return to London where she performed the role of Fantine in LES MISERABLES for a successful two-year season.
Silvie’s other Australasian credits include the role of Jeannie in HAIR, Grizabella in the Australian and Asian tour of CATS, Ellen in Cameron Mackintosh’s Australian premiere of MISS SAIGON, Donna in the smash hit MAMMA MIA!, Rita in the world premiere of SIDESHOW ALLEY and more recently The Production Company’s production of THE KING AND I.
In 2001, Silvie toured with her one-woman show SILVIE PALADINO SINGS STREISAND for which she received rave reviews, and was nominated for a Green Room Award. Silvie has released a live CD of this performance. In 2007 she released a Christmas album entitled SILVIE PALADINO – CHRISTMAS LIST.
Apart from her theatrical credits, she is well known to Australian audiences through her regular television appearances including CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT for the Nine Network.
She has also featured at many special events such as the world-wide telecast of the Rugby League Grand Final, the Australian Football League Grand Final, Boxing Day Cricket Test and a showcase hosted by BHP Billiton, in Beijing, as part of the 2008 Olympics.
Silvie’s concert performances include lead artist with The Melbourne Symphony, The Sydney Symphony, The West Australian Symphony, The Australian Philharmonic Orchestra, The State Orchestra of Victoria and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. She has also toured with the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra in a series of concerts throughout Thailand and toured with international singer Patrizio Buanne throughout Australia.
She performed with celebrated theatrical composer Stephen Schwartz in concert and was invited to perform at the farewell concert of Hamer Hall in Melbourne before it closed for renovations in 2010.
Silvie’s new solo album, On My Own, will be released late May 2011.
