Since 2010, "The Phantom of the Opera" by authoring team Deborah Sasson and Jochen Sautter has been received enthusiastically by audiences and critics on more than 450 European stages. Thus, this German-speaking musical re-staging, which was created on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the novel "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" written by Gaston Leroux in 1910, is one of the most successful touring musical productions in Europe.
The musical keeps closer to the original novel than other musical interpretations.
The role of Christine interprets the Bostonian singer and Echo Klassik award winner Deborah Sasson herself. Her multi-faceted and powerful soprano voice is ideally suited for this mix of opera and musical.
Musical superstar Uwe Kröger was able to play for the coming season for the first time be won for this outstanding production. He takes on the prominent role of the phantom. For him extra new songs were composed and installed.
For more than a decade, Uwe Kroeger has played all the main roles in the Viennese and German premiere theaters, including the Hamburg Phantom of the Opera, Elisabeth, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon.
Maximilian Arland, known from German TV, embodies the role of the rich, attractive Earl Raoul de Chagny this year. The crowd pleaser crowns his 25th stage anniversary with his appearance in the spectacular theater classic.
Furthermore, a large ensemble of outstanding performers from the German-speaking world is involved in the production.
In a way never before shown on a tour, the most elaborate, fast video camera shots are used through the labyrinth of the Paris Opera. In the chase through the catacombs, falling boulders block the way. The famous chandelier falls from the ceiling with a tremendous roar, so real that many spectators duck away in their chairs. The special effects are worth the visit of the musical alone!
An 18-piece orchestra, specially composed by musical director Peter Oleksiak, plays the music live.
"Standing Ovations - a spectacular musical!"
"Deborah Sasson is pure magic! Great technical tricks!"
