Phantom of the Opera at Royal Albert Hall (Episode #3613()

KQED 9: Tue, Nov 27, 2012 -- 7:30 PM

In celebration of its blockbuster 25th anniversary year, Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer Cameron Mackintosh presented The Phantom of the Opera in a fully-staged, lavish production, set in the sumptuous Victorian splendor of London's Royal Albert Hall. Starring Ramin Karimloo as The Phantom, Sierra Boggess as his protege Christine Daae, and Hadley Fraser as Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny, the romantic trio is backed by a complete cast and orchestra of more than 200, as well as surprise special guest appearances. Regarded by many as Lloyd Webber's masterpiece, The Phantom of the Opera first opened in 1986 at Her Majesty's Theatre, and is based on the French novel Le Fantome de l'Opera. Worldwide the show has grossed over $5.6 billion, with box office revenues higher than any film or stage play in history, including Titanic, ET and Star Wars. It has been produced in 145 cities in 27 countries and played to more than 130 million people. The show has won more than 50 major theatre awards, including seven Tonys and three Olivier Awards in the West End. It is currently showing in London, New York, Budapest, Las Vegas, and Kyoto. In 2006, it became Broadway's longest running show ever.
