THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
12 Jun

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Charles Hart
Additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe
Book by Richard Stilgoe & Andrew Lloyd Webber
Based on the novel 'Le Fantôme de l'Opéra' by Gaston Leroux


THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is now available for schools, colleges and universities to perform for the first time in Australasia.*

It is with great excitement, that Origin Theatrical announce the availability of The Phantom of the Opera to be performed by schools, colleges and universities in 2018 and 2019 in Australasia.*

The Phantom of the Opera is a perfect way to introduce young people to the pleasures and mysteries of a live theatre experience. In these days of film and video, The Phantom of the Opera's unforgettable score and breathtaking spectacle can show students that the theatre is an exciting and vital place.
As well as being a sweeping, fantastic story, The Phantom of the Opera evokes ideas and concepts that run through history and literature: the outcast, the mythology of beauty and the beast, the use of the mask, women in Victorian society and the power of music. Students will learn that ideas and language which seem dry and dull on the page come vividly to life on stage.

Excerpt from Study Guide written by Peter Royston.
*All productions must be on your own premises.

"I am delighted that Phantom is available to be performed by
schools and colleges for the first time. Good luck and have fun!"

-- Andrew Lloyd Webber
