About Phantom

This Phantom is an exquisite masterpiece of a musical based on Gaston Leroux’s timeless love story of the disfigured musical genius Erik and his muse Christine.  Their musical affair unfolds deep in the catacombs of the opera house where Erik finds salvation in Christine’s breathtaking voice.  If you are familiar with the popular Lloyd Webber version, then you will revel in this Phantom’s characters, as they are more richly developed and offer a deeper exploration of the Phantom's past.

The music is more operetta-like in style than Lloyd Webber's, reflecting the 1890s period in its score, with a decided French atmosphere more suitable to its Parisian setting.  A beautiful story with beautiful music that brings to life the enchantment and mystery of the greatest love story of all time.
