Even for those who know little about musical theatre, The Phantom Of The Opera rings a loud bell. For theatre heads, this Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece, one of many, is more than just a play: It resembles life, love, loss, lust and human struggle, and the Phantom has become a symbol of a tortured soul, a lovelorn extremist behind the iconic half-faced white mask.
Twenty-six years after the musical opened in London, The Phantom Of The Opera is finally coming to Bangkok courtesy of BEC-Tero Entertainment and Scenario. Initially, the show had been slated for three weeks, but popular demand has already extended the season for a further week.
For the Bangkok production, Broadway veteran Brad Little is the Phantom, newcomer Claire Lyon plays Christine, and Anthony Downing takes on Raoul. Little has played the Phantom more than 2,000 times, but admits to feeling the same buzz every evening.
The Phantom Of The Opera is from May 7 to June 9 at Muangthai Rachadalai Theatre. Tickets cost 5,500, 4,000, 3,000, 2,500 and 1,500 baht and are available at www.thaiticketmajor.com and all Thai Ticket Major kiosks.
