Freddie Tapner

CEO and Artistic Director

Freddie Tapner is a theatre and music entrepreneur, executive, producer, conductor and musical supervisor specialising in musical theatre and orchestral concerts. He is CEO & Artistic Director of the London Musical Theatre Orchestra and a guest conductor at Volksoper, Vienna.

Freddie started his career in entertainment in 2014 after gaining a first class degree in Engineering from Pembroke College, Cambridge, and quickly found success as a musical director, working on projects with composer Howard Goodall and actor/writer Nick Mohammed. In July 2015 he founded the London Musical Theatre Orchestra, a charitable organisation dedicated to performing musical theatre in concert form.

As a conductor, Freddie has worked across London and internationally, with notable performances including Love Never Dies (Theatre Royal Drury Lane), Anatevka (Fiddler on the Roof) (Volksoper, Vienna), Chess (Theatre Royal Drury Lane), A Christmas Carol (Dominion Theatre), The Best of the West End (Royal Albert Hall), Lucie Jones Live at the Adelphi (Adelphi Theatre), Jingle Bell Favourites (Dubai Opera House), Camelot (London Palladium) and Candide (Cadogan Hall).

He has produced and executive produced shows and concerts in some of London’s biggest theatres, including the London Palladium, the Dominion Theatre, the Lyceum Theatre and Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Most recently, he co-produced staged concerts with Darren Bell of Evita and Love Never Dies at Theatre Royal Drury Lane, the latter of which led Andrew Lloyd Webber to say at the curtain call “I’m astounded… no composer could ask for more”.

His work branched into television in 2022 where he was the Musical Supervisor and Music Producer for the 60-minute comedy Prince Andrew: The Musical for Hat Trick Productions/Channel 4, producing seven original songs in collaboration with Kieran Hodgson. Other recordings/broadcasts include Lucie Jones Live at the Adelphi (Live Album), Girlfriends (Live Album) and The Best of the West End (BBC Radio 2).
