THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

 

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber Lyrics by Don Black & Christopher Hampton

Book by Don Black & Christopher Hampton

 

Gaiety Theatre 10th - 22nd August, 2015

 

THE SHOW

An architect and designer, a composer and magician. He's a genius who must hide his facial disfigurement behind a mask and in the catacombs beneath Paris's Opera Populaire, known only as the Phantom of the Opera or Opera Ghost.

His one companion is his young singing protégé, a soprano named Christine Daae who is drawn to and mystified but at the same time terrified of her Angel of Music whose rapturous voice sings songs in her head while she sleeps and whispers in her ear during day. Everyone at the opera house is used to the Phantom's deadly pranks when his demands are not met but when a canopy falls, nearly crushing her, the opera's leading diva, Carllota, resigns. With no understudy, the managers turn to Christine who at the time was no more than a chorus girl.

The show casts her into immediate fame. But when Christine, whom the Phantom has fallen in love with, accepts a marriage proposal from her childhood sweetheart Viscount Raoul de Changy, the Phantom's heart is broken. His despair quickly turns to furious, jealous rage and is willing to do anything to win her, even if it means raising the stakes to the ultimate level in Christine's choice between her love for

Raoul and her strange attraction to the Phantom.

REVIEW

Phantom of the Opera really is a fantastic show not to missed. In Taylorian’s capable hands, it has evolved into a new spectacular and moving show.

Who needs to go to the West End when the talent, dedication and enthusiasm from our local performers is on display here? - Isle of Man Today
