Andrew Lloyd Webber's Gem Apr 21, 2011
by Charles R H
The Phantom of the Opera (original London Cast) is truly one of the truly great pieces of music composed in the late 20th century. The triumph of love over hate--good over evil--that this musical's story line presents is as heartwarming as ever. But the many genres of musical fireworks employed is pure genius. Webber soars! The skill and artistry of the performers, both on stage and in the pit, rise to meet the composer's offering perfectly. Try it; you'll love it.
