The Phantom of the Opera in Singapore
My last vague memory of Phantom of the Opera was in 2004, on my birthday, when my aunt brought me along with my cousins to watch the film adaptation. That long ago and I still dream to witness how grand the production will be in Broadway, well next to Les Misérables.
Raoul, Erik and Christine’s complicated love story is complimented by impressive musical score by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Dramatic scenes are cut to be the most spine-tingling performance.
The Phantom of the Opera is a heart-wrenching story of the mysterious, hideously disfigured Phantom who lives beneath the Paris Opera House, and his obsession with the young singer Christine. Disguised as the ‘Angel of Music’ he devotes himself to creating a new opera star, and winning her love from his rival Raoul, while exercising a reign of terror over the Opera House.
I can’t help but count the days. This has got to be one of my most-awaited musical production. Until then, I’ll keep playing The Music of the Night.
This event comes to Singapore for strictly limited season starting 16 July to 11 August 2013 at Grand Theatre, Mastercard Theaters at Marina Bay Sands.
