Norway’s biggest musical producer Scenekvelder, is delighted to present Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, for the very first time in Norway!
Based on the 1910 horror novel by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera is a thrilling and romantic account of the legendary Phantom, a musical genius who dwells deep beneath a majestic opera house in Paris. Shunned by society for his horrible facial deformity, he takes a promising young soprano, Christine, under his wing and grooms her for operatic fame, all the while falling deeply in love with her. As Christine grows ever more successful, and a handsome young man from her past begins to successfully court her, the Phantom descends into a jealous rage and terrorizes the opera company with increasingly dangerous threats.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score soars with such famous tunes as “Think of Me”, “All I Ask of You”, “The Music of the Night”, and the title song, “The Phantom of the Opera”.
The Phantom of the Opera has gone on to become a cultural tour de force, and one of the most successful musicals of all time!
