The big touring production returns with a top-class star cast and in a completely new musical adaptation. A real musical highlight!
Following the outstanding success of the 2022/23 tour, world star Deborah Sasson was won over once again to take on the role of Christine during the season. The singer's interplay with Germany's number one musical star, Uwe Kroeger, who continues in the role of the Phantom, was celebrated by audiences and the press everywhere.
Since 2010, "The Phantom of the Opera" by the author team Deborah Sasson and Jochen Sautter has captivated audiences on the stages of Europe. Now the forced break of the Corona Pandemic has been creatively used to completely rework the production musically. The successful British musician Ryan Martin, who has composed and arranged music for Cirque du Soleil, America's Got Talent, Netflix, BBC, ABC, CBS and Fox USA, among others, could be won for this.
The spectacular stage design thrives on both the effective, three-dimensional video projections by internationally acclaimed multimedia artist Daniel Stryjecki and the grandiose stage elements built by Michael Scott of the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
This new production, once created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the novel "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" written by Gaston Leroux in 1910, is one of the most successful touring musicals in Europe. The production stands out from all previous musical interpretations of the literary material by sticking closer to the novel and incorporating well-known opera quotes in parts of the music composed by Sasson.
The role of Christine is interpreted by the world-renowned Boston soprano and Echo Klassik award winner Deborah Sasson. Her multi-faceted and powerful voice is perfect for this blend of opera and musical. The Phantom is played by Uwe Kroeger, who has captured the hearts of audiences since his breakthrough role of Death in the world premiere of Elisabeth. Among others, he played the leading roles in the world premieres of Rebecca, Mozart, The Visit of the Old Lady, Heidi and in the German language premieres of Sunset Boulevard, Miss Saigon, Doctor Dolittle, The Addams Family as well as Napoleon at London's West End. Now, in this production, he slips into the role of the Phantom, feared by the world and torn apart inside.
Furthermore, a large ensemble of selected singers, dancers and actors from German-speaking countries will participate.
