Her debut solo album On Stage – features some of her favourite Broadway hits including songs from ‘The Phantom of the Opera’, ‘Love Never Dies’ and ‘My Fair Lady’.
Claire is one of few actresses in the world to have performed in both The Phantom of the Opera and its sequel, Love Never Dies, in which she understudied and performed the same role of Christine in the Australian national tour.
In early 2020, Claire once again starred as Christine Daaé in the World Tour of The Phantom of the Opera. Due to the Covid -19 Pandemic, this show was the only live major production playing anywhere in the world.
