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.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
