The Phantom of the Opera - New York

 

The Phantom of the Opera is a dark, romantic musical based on the book by Gaston Leroux first published in 1909. It tells the story of a mysterious, shadowy figure living in the gloomy labyrinthine passages under the Opera Garnier. A disfigured genius, he becomes obsessed with a beautiful soprano named Christine. Other characters include Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny and Carlotta Giudicelli. The gothic backdrops include a sweeping staircase, the central chandelier and a subterranean gondola. The astonishing special effects add to the enjoyment of this enchanting production with the Phantom's makeup alone taking two hours to complete prior to each performance. Thrilling and haunting; the musical score captures every mesmerising moment leading to an unforgettable climax.

The character of the Phantom is played by James Barbour, a star of many shows, movies and television programmes.
