Phantom

All Aboard the Meme Express – Monday, January 26, 2009



Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical The Phantom of the Opera opened at New York’s Majestic Theatre on January 26, 1988, starring Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman. Based on the French novel, Le Fantome de l’Opera, by Gaston Leroux, Phantom would become the longest running Broadway show ever.


Here’s the music video of the title song from The Phantom of the Opera, as performed by Broadway stars Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman at the 1988 Tony Awards:

  2. Phantom of the Opera is definitely one of my favorites, in terms of movies and musicals!! It's a great one to watch on Valentine's Day, too.

  3. Yeah, I bet Phantom is very good on stage. I wasn't so psyched about the film version. More on that is at this piece: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1290059/the_best_worst_musicals_for_film.html?cat=7

    Feel free to check it out. =)

  5. I was fortunate enough to see Crawford and Brightman in Phantom of the Opera in London before it moved to New York. I have seen it since with a different cast and it was not the same. No one else can play it for me.

    Sunday Scribblings had a similar prompt this week. Please visit mine:
