The Phantom of the Opera


Source
I love musicals and there are so many great ones to see in London. So far I haven’t seen one musical that has not given me the goosebumps and that I have not loved. The Phantom of the Opera is also one such musical and I can think of one word that describes it: astonishing.

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical by the famous Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the French novel Le Fantôme de L’Opèra by Gaston Leroux. The music in the musical was also composed by Webber and is now renowned around the world.

I believe we all know the story; it starts with an auction where an old chandelier awakens a connection to the Phantom of the Opera. It then goes back in time to when the Phantom was more than a story; he was the real item.

I absolutely love this musical. The music is fantastic and breathtaking and magnifying. It is actually difficult to describe the feeling when you’re sitting in the audience listening to the strong voices. I particularly fell in love with the voice of the Phantom, so powerful and sexy.

I absolutely love and recommend this musical. It is the perfect musical to watch with your friends, boyfriend or family. I think this musical has everything: power, romance, complications, fantastic singing and with a perfect cast with a pinch of darkness that is simply perfect in this setting. I promise that you will not be disappointed.

  6. I saw Les Mis in London and it was my introduction to great theater! I think I was only 12 but it stuck with me. London has incredible theater!
