STAGE TUBE: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in Manila Performs Title Song, Masquerade

Manila, Philippines, August 28, 2012 - Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, David Atkins Enterprise, Radio High Definition, and Concertus Manila held a press preview of the international touring production of Broadway's longest-running mega musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera," earlier today at the main theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. 

Gibbs Cadiz, Philippine Daily Inquirer's lifestyle desk editor, editorial writer, and theater blogger, has captured with his video camera some of the highlights from the event.

Here are "two clips of musical excerpts performed earlier today at the press preview-the scenes obviously chosen to highlight 'The Phantom of the Opera's' main strengths: vocal fireworks and visual opulence. The first features the last bars of the title song, sung (impressively) by Jonathan Roxmouth as the Phantom and Claire Lyon as Christine. The second is from the spectacular 'Masquerade' set piece that opens Act 2, the bad-ass moment for the musical's lavish production design and Maria Bjornson costumes. Oh, by the way, that ravishing sound coming from the pit? Fourteen of the 17-strong orchestra are Filipino musicians. Bravissimi!" Cadiz said.
