Flamboyant scenery, stunning choreography by Jee Jee Noh, and more than 230 costumes by the late international designer Maria Björnson will take to the stage for the final time in Dubai this weekend.
Liz Koops, CEO of Broadway Entertainment Group said: “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has seen by thousands of musical theatre fans and UAE residents who have taken the show and the cast to their hearts. With just a handful of dates remaining, now is the time for those who haven’t yet seen the show to book their tickets for the final performances. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA truly epitomises the best of musical theatre, in one of the world’s most breath-taking opera houses.
With a total of 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breath-taking special effects and more than 230 costumes by the late international designer Maria Björnson, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a sight to behold. The musical contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous and stirring music, including The Phantom of the Opera, Think of Me and Music of the Night. The original cast recording, with over 40 million copies sold worldwide, is the bestselling cast recording of all time.
Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius, known as the Phantom, who haunts the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent 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 jealousy, madness and passions collide.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is presented in Dubai by Broadway Entertainment Group and Dubai Opera. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is brought to you by Du Live.
