Phantom of the Opera the Musical

While Beryl and Ray see Mamma Mia, we head to the Venetian to see Phantom of the Opera in a custom built $40 million dollar theatre!! This musical version follows the film quite closely, using similar unveiling of the theatre, so basically we're sat in the film. It starts out with the chandelier flying round the entire room in pieces and gradually assembling in the roof, which then lights up and the entire theatre is revealled from behind "dusty" sheets, quite spectacular! Other memorable scenes are when they visit the phatom in the basement, with the whole boat scene with thousands of candles appearing out the the stage and "floating" around. The whole thing was 95 minutes of non-stop songs, superp set pieces and of course that haunting music!!

5 out of 5
