“Bigger & better than ever before!”
I have been in love with The Phantom of the Opera since 1986, Andrew Lloyd Webber worked his magic on the Gaston Leroux story, what seems like a million years ago. I drove my family insane as I learned to sing the score, they suffered though every wrong note and cracked voice until I got it right. Such patient souls, my family.
I’m not sure if there’s anyone out there who isn’t intimately familiar with the story, given it’s been worldwide broadway hit around the world since it debuted in 1986!
“The story centers on the thrilling love triangle between the mysterious Phantom, Christine and Raoul at the Opera Populaire in Paris. Lloyd Webber’s score includes the beloved songs “Music of the Night,” “Think of Me” and “All I Ask of You.”
The cast includes Derrick Davis as The Phantom, Katie Travis as Christine Daaé, Jordan Craig as Raoul, Trista Moldovan as Carlotta, David Benoit as Monsieur Firmin, Edward Staudenmayer as Monsieur Andre, Anne Kanengeiser as Madame Giry, Phumzile Sojola as Ubaldo Piangi and Emily Ramirez as Meg Giry.”

For the record, this is my favourite Phantom song to sing!
“The Phantom of the Opera made its world premiere in London’s West End in 1986, where it still plays today. Lloyd Webber’s musical thriller has been running on Broadway since 1988, where it has grossed over $890 million in ticket sales and recently celebrated its 25th anniversary.”
