The Phantom of the Opera
A new Musical based on the original story
Original music composed by international star soprano Deborah Sasson
Breath taking scenery and state of the art interactive video animations create the perfect stage illusion!
The critics are unanimous: This new «Phantom of the Opera» is the most spectacular musical currently touring Europe. Audiences are captivated by the powerful new music and the sensitive lyrics. Technically perfect stage effects and a sophisticated interchange of transformations and special effects round off the exciting production.
The new musical was created for the 100th anniversary of Gaston Leroux’s world famous novel «Le Fantôme de l’Opéra», which was first published in 1911. The authors of the new show, Deborah Sasson and Jochen Sautter, rely more closely on the original work than any other musical stage version of the well-known story.
The composer of this new musical is the international star soprano Deborah Sasson. She was discovered and has worked extensively with the late Leonard Bernstein, who greatly influenced her work as a composer. Miss Sasson performed at some of the world’s most distinguished opera houses such as San Francisco, La Fenice in Venice, Buenos Aires, Paris, and Bayreuth. She also received several awards, e.g. the prestigious Echo award in Germany. Quotations of classical works from composers mentioned in Leroux’s novel were important to her, so she incorporated them into her compositions for this show as form giving factors.
British musical director and conductor Peter Moss, who has been arranging music for the BBC London for several decades, completed the orchestrations. Deborah Sasson wrote together with Paris based director and choreographer Jochen Sautter the lyrics in close collaboration. Mr Sautter has choreographed, directed and performed shows the world over. He is the director and the choreographer of this “Phantom of the Opera” production.
The Canadian set designer Michael Scott, whose stage sets for the Metropolitan Opera in New York have been critically acclaimed, created the exciting scenery.
The outstanding cast is composed of internationally renowned actors and singers. A live orchestra of 18 musicians selected and directed by musical director Peter Moss, is performing the powerful music.
