Michael Falzon's Biography

Since beginning his professional career in his late teens, Michael Falzon has worked throughout Australia, Asia, USA and UK, performing in Theatre speakers, concert, cabaret, television and film.
His theatrical credits include The Pirates of Penzance (Opera Queensland & Essgee Productions); Hello, Dolly! (Gordon/Frost & Adelaide Festival Trust); H.M.S. Pinafore (Essgee Productions); Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat (The Really Useful Group); In Concert with Michael Ball (Lyric Theatre speakers, Sydney); and his Helpmann Award nominated performance in We Will Rock You around Australia since August 2003.
For three years, as an original member of the international opera act The Three Waiters, Michael Falzon appeared in several hundred shows worldwide. During that time, a highlight for Michael was bringing a tear to the eye of Olympic legend Betty Cuthbert with his rendition of ‘O Sole Mio’. Personally requested by Prime Minister John Howard to perform at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), Michael had the unique privilege of singing ‘That’s Amore’ on the lap of British PM Tony Blair.
Beyond his stage (and lap) performances, Michael has graced both the small and big screens as actor and vocalist. To television audiences around Australia, Michael performed live on stage with QUEEN in an A Current Affair special. In the last two years, he has been a regular guest on GMA, performed at Carols by Candlelight, Carols in the Domain, the Good Friday Appeal and featured as a trigger-happy Spaniard in Abe Forsythe’s film, Ned (Ocean Pictures). He has led the cast of We Will Rock You at the Rod Laver Arena to close Melbourne’s season final of The Footy Show, and launched the Australian Open with his rendition of “We are the Champions”. Michael also had the honour of singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” before a crowd of 80,000 at the AFL Grand Final, televised to millions around the world from the MCG.
For his portrayal of “Galileo”, the leading role in the Australian production of We Will Rock You, Michael Falzon was cast by none other than Brian May and Roger Taylor of QUEEN and writer/director Ben Elton. Said Brian May, in a cover story of The Sunday Times Magazine, “The man who plays this character has to be a very good actor, a brilliant singer – the range and power of Freddie is rarely equaled – and he has to have one extra rare commodity. He has to BE a rock star, for this is something beyond make-believe. The people who see We Will Rock You believe they saw the real thing. Michael was, and is, able to deliver the whole package.”
