THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA opens in Orange County with a newly reinvented staging and stunning scenic design. PHANTOM is performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this one of the largest productions on tour in North America.


Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

I recall seeing this fabulous production at least 15 years ago, and just fell in love with the story line and the mesmerizing music. I’m so looking forward to taking my husband to see this in celebration of our 10th anniversary – it’s a perfect date night!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “It’s wonderful to have a new production of PHANTOM touring America now that the show has celebrated 27 years on Broadway. Director Laurence Connor has done an amazing job and this production has received huge critical acclaim in the U.K.”

Cameron Mackintosh said, “With PHANTOM still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 27 phenomenal years, with no end in sight, I’m delighted that this spectacular new production of PHANTOM has been as well-received in the U.S. as the brilliant original. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, the new PHANTOM is thrilling audiences and critics alike all over again – the music of the night is soaring to dazzling new heights.”
