Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, the chandelier used wasn't the same one as the one used in the 2004 film version of The Phantom of the Opera. Instead, it was one built exclusively for the concert which was named Maria, named after Maria Björnson, the original production designer who died several years before. On the DVD & Blu-Ray release in the making of feature, you can see 'Maria' engraved on the bottom of the chandelier. See more »

A flawless performance captured flawlessly!
11 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have not yet gotten the chance to see this show live but I have always loved the music. I was excited when I heard the movie was being made but found it to be pretty disappointing. My biggest complaint with the film is the casting decisions. The phantom was terrible at singing and Christine was pretty weak too. That was that until I was on Netflix recently and came across this gem. I found myself getting teary eyed ten minutes in mostly as a reaction to how grand and powerfully this is executed. Every performer is kicking some serious ass and the stage production is mind- blowing. The sound it great as well as the editing and lighting. And if that wasn't enough there's a special 25th anniversary event at the end that is sure to be any Phantom of the Opera's fans wet dream. Watch this video!
