In 2007 and again in 2009 Central Queensland Conservatorium of Music honoured Paul Tabone with the  ‘Most Promising Voice for Music Theatre’ award and immediately after his graduation in 2009 Paul made his solo opera debut in Opera Queensland’s world premiere production of The Dirty Apple.

Two years later he landed the supporting principle role of Squelch in Love Never Dies,  the sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.  Paul moved to Italy in 2012 where he was engaged as a soloist in Puccini’s renowned opera Turandot in Florence (Santa Stefano Opera).

In September 2013 he performed at the New York City Centre (Broadway), Teatro Menotti (Spoleto) and then Teatro Duse in Bologna with the Luciano Pavarotti Heritage Concert as a tenor with the Luciano Pavarotti Foundation.

In 2014 Paul made his professional operatic debut as Duca di Mantova in Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Opera Națională București under the baton of Cristian Sand, with direction by Stephen Barlow. In April, Paul performed as Tony in Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story for the Teatro Carlo Felice (Genova) under the baton of Maestro Wayne Marshall and again in 2014 he made his debut as B.F Pinkerton in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly at the Teatro dei Gigli (Lucca) in collaboration with the Puccini Foundation of Italy under the direction of Massimo Morelli.
In 2015, with a return to the Opera Națională București for further performances as Duca Di Mantova (Rigoletto), he was also invited to reprise the role  of Squelch in Love Never Dies at the Stage Operettenhaus in Hamburg (Germany) called, Liebe Stirbt Nie – Phantom II.
Paul has recently concluded a four year contract and over 1800 performances at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s glimmering West End, playing the role of Ubaldo Piangi in the 33rd year of  The Phantom of The Opera. The Australian High Commission (London) often called upon Paul to perform for royalty including events attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Paul has recently released his debut album This is Me, which rose to #1 on the classical crossover charts in Australia, United Kingdon and the USA.
