Singer Victoria Mature will perform an intimate cabaret concert in August at Assembly Rooms in honour of her late father Victor Mature, one of the most popular leading actors from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

In the show she uses music from Broadway to opera, folk and pop and film clips inspired by Victor’s extraordinary career. The show runs from August 1-25.

Victor Mature was a Hollywood stage and screen actor of the 1940s and 1950s. The original Hollywood hunk, his best-known film roles include “One Million B.C.”, “Kiss of Death,” “My Darling Clementine,” and the Biblical epics “Samson and Delilah” and “The Robe.” Mature also appeared with some of Hollywood’s most beautiful leading ladies, including Hedy Lamarr, Rita Hayworth, and Betty Grable. Despite his obvious range as an actor, Mature is best known for his muscular, imposing appearance in a toga.

‘For years my father’s Biblical epics were broadcast on TV around the world at Christmas and Easter. He became synonymous with the sword and sandal, Biblical films. You may know Victor Mature as Doc Holliday or Samson or Demetrius… I knew him as Dad!’ Victoria Mature

Victoria Mature is a San Diego based opera singer with an international career. In addition to performing, Victoria has helped to keep Victor Mature’s films in the spotlight for the past 5 years by visiting and introducing his films at classic film festivals both domestically and around the world.
