For the first time ever in Sydney, Australia’s first Phantom, the
extraordinary Anthony Warlow, will perform the lead role in this
remarkable production which is currently playing in Melbourne. Anthony
has been widely acclaimed for his defining role as the Phantom, which
he performed in Melbourne in 1990.
“To have Anthony in Sydney reclaiming the role he made his own is one of theatre’s magic events,” said Producer, John Frost, of the Gordon/ Frost Organisation. “Anthony has been honoured by this country and elected a Living National Treasure. It is fitting that he introduces a new audience to this wonderful love story.”
The longest running musical on Broadway, recently celebrating 20 years, The Phantom of the Opera has won more than 50 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards. It’s been 11 years since the musical was last performed in Sydney.
“Andrew Lloyd Webber’s masterpiece has been seen by more than 80 million people in 124 cities around the world,” said producer Tim McFarlane of The Really Useful Company Asia Pacific. “Audiences have taken it to their hearts and the production is still a truly magnificent spectacle. We are confident it will continue its incredible world-wide success in Sydney.”
The Phantom of the Opera has been playing to rave reviews and capacity audiences in Melbourne since the national tour opened in July. The production will then play Brisbane from 6 February 2008 and in Sydney from the 11th of May 2008.
The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano - Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, The Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealously, madness and passions collide.
With spectacular sets and more than 230 costumes by international designer, the late Maria Björnson, The Phantom of the Opera contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous music, including ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Music of the Night’.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical is based upon the novel Le Fantome De L’Opera by Gaston Leroux. Original London production by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group. The Phantom of the Opera is presented in Australia by The Really Useful Company Asia Pacific and The Gordon/Frost Organisation.
