Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber's masterpiece The Phantom of the Opera returns to the Adelaide stage this spring. Tickets are now on sale for this strictly limited season, from September 27 to October 6 2018.
This exciting production is proudly presented by the G&S Society and promises to be a must-see visual spectacle of delight and drama.
The winner of 70 major theatre awards and the longest running Broadway musical ever, The Phantom of the Opera is the musical that all other musicals are measured against. It is the timeless tale of an undeniable obsession that could never die.
Based on the 1910 horror novel by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera is the thrilling and romantic account of the legendary Phantom (Adam Goodburn), a musical genius who dwells deep beneath a majestic opera house in Paris. Shunned by society for his horrible facial deformity, he takes a promising young soprano, Christine (Serena Martino-Williams), under his wing and grooms her for operatic fame, all the while falling deeply in love with her.
As Christine grows ever more successful and a handsome young man from her past (Jared Frost) begins to successfully court her, the Phantom descends into a jealous rage and terrorises the opera company with increasingly dangerous threats.
Directed by David Sinclair, the production features a talented local cast including Kaylene Graham (Madame Giry), Monique Hapgood (Carlotta), Rod Schultz (Monsieur Firmin), David Visentin (Monsieur André), James Nicholson (Piangi), Jessica Muenchow (Meg Giry), Nicholas Munday (Monsieur Reyer), Lance Jones (Buquet) and Brad Martin (Monsieur LeFevre). Assistant Director Brock Roberts and Choreographer Jamie Jewell also feature in cameos as Passarino and Don Attilio respectively.
Featuring such famous tunes as 'Think of Me,' 'All I Ask of You,' 'The Music of the Night,' 'Masquerade' and the title song, 'The Phantom of the Opera,' audiences will leave the theatre having enjoyed a theatrical tour de force!
Musical Director Jillian Gulliver, regards Phantom as one of her 'bucket list' shows, "It's such a fantastic musical journey for the audience, performers and musicians alike and I am thrilled to be collaborating with the talented David Sinclair!"
