THEATER: The Phantom of the Opera at Belk Theater 

Tuesday, June 23

This is big: Staged performances of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera -- adapted from Gaston Leroux's novel-- are back in Charlotte at Belk Theater for the first time since 2001. Having seen this long standing, award-winning Broadway musical in the past, I can tell you to go. The chandelier won't fall on you, but you may come out entranced by the tragic love story of a beautiful opera singer and a masked-man aka "phantom" who faithfully lusts after her. The phantom -- who has deemed himself to the gloomy lair beneath the Paris Opera House because of his physical appearance -- should give it a go with the gal, don't ya think? Forget his looks. He's got both charm and a vocal box to match. Continues through July 5. $20-$88. 7:30 p.m. Belk Theater, 130 N. Tryon St. 704-372-1000. www.blumenthalcenter.org.
