Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA will make its highly anticipated return to Cincinnati at the Aronoff Center for 2 weeks, November 15 – 27, 2016.
I was so excited to see this production. I have never seen The Phantom Of The Opera before, so I was a first timer and I have to tell you, it was worth the wait! The music, by legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, is powerful and beautiful; the story is riveting; and the characters have depth.
The show was absolutely amazing. The sets were incredible, and of course, the gorgeous chandelier was the centerpiece of the show. There were pyrotechnics with sparks and dramatic flames. And the costumes were perfect and big and glamorous. The cast will give you goosebumps with their incredible acting and singing abilities.
The Phantom of the Opera makes for a great date night or girls’ night out. I would caution you if you are thinking about taking younger kids, as the plot and the themes might be for a more mature audience. My kids would have been a bit scared at certain parts.
