The Phantom of the Opera

The first May bank holiday arrived, and with the sun shining, I headed to London for the long weekend and, of course, a musical.

Phantom - boatCurrently in its 30th year, phantom had been scaring the stage and keeping the audience on their toes in critical acclaim. It’s been a musical I’ve been waiting to see for a while. Full of suspense and the power of music. Yet I was surprised by the many stories told within this tale. The original opera working in parallel to the Phantom’s own musical. It’s an incredible act of story telling. While simultaneously creating a range of emotions which take the audience through this journey.

Further to this, the elaborate staging enhanced the story line, the boat through the Phantom’s later was incredible to watch, a space full of suspense, appeared intimate despite the full house. Let alone the many secrets spaces the Phantom himself managed to hide within, taking me by surprise each time.

It was a breathtaking experience, the incredible cast and music kept the audience spell-bound throughout. It made me wish, once again, that I could somehow be apart of this theatre world, but we’ll just have to see what time will bring.
