Exploring many of the characters Hayden has inhabited on stage in Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the UK and the USA, this will be a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with one of today’s most acclaimed performers and recording artists in theatre, concert and cabaret.

Hayden is best known for his award-winning (Melbourne Green Room award, Sydney Theatre award) portrayal of Javert in the Australian, New Zealand, Broadway, West End and Dubai productions of Les Misérables. He comes to Sydney fresh from the London production of Matilda, where he performed the role of Miss Trunchbull, earning a BroadwayWorld UK Award nomination for best male performer in a long-running West End show. It will be a welcome return for Hayden and the first time Sydney audiences will have had a chance to see him since his 2017 performance as Lana Lea Sonia in Only Heaven Knows.

He has performed the role of Mason Marzak in Take Me Out in Singapore, as well as multiple roles in the South Korean production of CATS and Jekyll and Hyde in Taiwan. In the USA, Hayden has performed in several productions including Being Earnest as Jack, 1776 as Edward Rutledge, Into The Woods as the Prince and Wolf, My Fair Lady as Freddy Einsford Hill, Camelot as King Arthur and Peter Pan as Captain Hook/Mr. Darling.

Hayden is no stranger to cabaret, winning the New York Award at the 2002 Sydney Cabaret Convention and making his New York cabaret debut at Don’t Tell Mamma on 46th Street in Hell’s Kitchen. At the concert on 8 December this year, Hayden will be accompanied on piano by Nigel Ubrihien, who also created the stunning orchestrations and arrangements for Hayden’s new album, and cellist Karella Mitchell.
