Following an acclaimed sell-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh's spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's phenomenal musical success is now embarking on a brand-new U.S. national tour. The soaring score features the memorable title tune, along with "Masquerade," "The Music of the Night" and "All I Ask of You." Hailed as "stunning, intense and spectacular" by the Sunday Express, this production features a brilliant new design by Paul Brown, costumes by Maria Björnson, new choreography by Scott Ambler and a new staging by director Laurence Connor. The production, overseen by Matthew Bourne and Cameron Mackintosh, boasts many exciting special effects, including the show's legendary chandelier. The Phantom of the Opera traces the tragic love triangle of a beautiful opera singer, her childhood love and the tortured masked genius who lives beneath the Paris Opera House. Learn More

The talent was spectacular, but I expected that. But I also expected more a narrative, a storyline...some unifying thread. And in the 2nd half there was more of that. But not too much in the first half. I also expected more creativity in the choreography--for a group famous for loosening the bonds of tradition, they were pretty stuck.
And speaking of stuck--the musicians were mostly jammed in the corner except on the rare occasion when there were aimlessly wandering around the stage. They are so talented they could have been featured more.
Lastly, the set was only very average. The lighting could have added so much, but didn't, really.
I'm glad I went, though. The dancing was top notch. Drawn out, but top notch.
The performance runs 2 hours and 15 minutes.
