Last year she finished a series of tests in Star City, Russia, to allow her to begin training as a cosmonaut. In 2015 she will join a three-person team to travel to the International Space Station as a UNESCO Artist for Peace ambassador. We learned from the first Aliens movie that, in space, no one can hear you scream. But can they hear you sing?
Brightman’s 11th album, Dreamchaser, is simultaneously a realization of her dreams when she began her career back in 1969 while watching the Apollo 11 moon landing on TV as a kid, and a culmination of her experiences while she prepares for this new journey. She’ll take Portland audiences for a test flight at McMenamins Edgefield on August 1 in a production that most reviews call out of this world. Tickets are now on sale.
