Opening night: The Phantom of the Opera

Posted By on Wed, Jun 10, 2009 at 12:37 PM


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’m telling ya, you need to snag yourself a ticket and check it out. 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 “the phantom,” who faithfully lusts after her. The phantom — who has banished 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 fabulous voice to make him quite a catch. Continues through July 5. 7:30 p.m. Belk Theater, 130 N. Tryon St. 704-372-1000.
