Christine is torn between two fascinating men, her mysterious mentor and her childhood sweetheart, the rich and handsome Count Raoul. A real musical highlight!
The spectacular stage design, which thrives on both the striking, 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, has once again been reworked with new elements. The dramatic fall of the chandelier, the mysterious tryst on the roof of the opera, the subterranean boat ride, the eerie encounter in the cemetery, and the terrifying underworld of the opera are now even more vividly depicted.
Since 2010, "The Phantom of the Opera" by the author team Deborah Sasson and Jochen Sautter has captivated audiences on over 500 stages in Europe. This makes this new musical production, which was once created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the novel "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" written by Gaston Leroux in 1910, 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 familiar opera quotes in parts of the music composed by Sasson.
The role of Christine is interpreted by the world-renowned Boston soprano and Echo Classic 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. Jochen Sautter can be seen in the role of the rich, attractive Count Raoul de Chagny.
The story is set in the Paris Opera. The soloist Carlotta is ill, the chorus girl Christine steps in and sings so clearly and flawlessly that something can't be right here. That's right, the Phantom is secretly teaching Christine to sing, expecting her love in return. But Christine's heart belongs to Count Raoul de Chagny. The new opera star must make a choice. Her passion for music speaks for the Phantom, her heart for Raoul. The rest is known: a broken chandelier, a car chase...
