The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabits it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at this command. Its sensational, smash hit score includes “Think of Me”, “Angel of Music”, “Music of the Night”, “All I ask of You”, “Masquerade” and the title song “Phantom of the Opera.”
Following in the footsteps of sell out seasons of Les Miserables, Cats, Miss Saigon and Beauty and the Beast amongst many others, producers Showbiz Christchurch present The Phantom of the Opera to the South Island of New Zealand.
