“Phantom of the Opera” coming to TPAC this fall


Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera is returning to the TPAC War Memorial Auditorium stage October 24 through November 4 in a combination of matinee performances.

Based on the novel by Gatson Leroux, Phantom tells the story of the Paris Opera House haunted by a mysterious disfigured “opera ghost.” This figure develops an obsession for a young singer, Christine Daae. Christine then meets Raoul, the Opera’s new patron and someone she had known years before, as a child. They fall in love, and set in motion an emotional triangle marked by passion and death.

Told in operatic style, it has numerous songs that have become modern-day classics: “All I Ask of You”, “Phantom of the Opera”, “Music of the Night”, “All I Ask of You”, “Masquerade”, “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again”, and “The Point of No Return.”

The show made its debut on the London stage in 1986 and in New York City in 1988. The recently celebrated its 30th anniversary in New York where it continues to play to packed houses.
