Le Fantôme de l’Opéra is a novel by French writer Gaston Leroux, first published as a serialisation in Le Gaulois from September 23, 1909, to January 8, 1910. The novel is partly inspired by historical events at the Paris Opera during the 19th century, and an apocryphal tale concerning the use of a former ballet pupil’s skeleton in Carl Maria von Weber‘s 1841 production of Der Freischütz. Nowadays, it is overshadowed by the success of its various stage and film adaptations. One of the most notable of these is Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s 1986 musical, which comes to Segerstrom Center for the Arts next Wednesday, August 5th and runs until Sunday, August 16th.
Following an acclaimed sold-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, comes to Segerstrom Center as part of a brand new North American Tour. Critics are raving that this breathtaking production is “bigger and better than ever before.” This PHANTOM features a brilliant new scenic design by Paul Brown, Tony Award®-winning original costume design by Maria Björnson, lighting design by Tony Award®-winner Paule Constable, new choreography by Scott Ambler, and a new staging by director Laurence Connor. The production, overseen by Matthew Bourne and Cameron Mackintosh, boasts many exciting special effects including the show’s legendary chandelier. The beloved story and thrilling score – with songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and “Masquerade” – will be performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this PHANTOM one of the largest productions now on tour.
