News   THE SCREENING ROOM: A Sneak Peek of Phantom of the Opera's 25th Anniversary (Video)
The 25th anniversary of the world premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera was marked by a fully staged production at London’s Royal Albert Hall Oct. 1-2. Here is a sneak peek of the performance, which will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray Nov. 14.

Featuring a 200-strong company and orchestra, the production starred Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess as the Phantom and Christine. The duo originated the same roles in Lloyd Webber’s Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies, and have also previously played the parts in Phantom in London and Las Vegas, respectively.

The company included Barry James as Monsieur Firman, Gareth Snook as Monsieur André, Liz Robertson as Madame Giry and Wynne Evans as Piangi. Produced by Cameron Mackintosh, the production was directed by Laurence Connor with musical staging and choreography by Gillian Lynne.

The Phantom of the Opera “tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it,” according to production notes. “He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.”
