The original production by Sasson/Sautter
This makes this new German-language musical production, which was created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the novel "Le Fantôme de l'Opéra" written by Gaston Leroux in 1910, one of the most successful touring musical productions in Europe. The musical sticks closer to the novel than other musical interpretations.
The role of Christine is interpreted by Boston singer and "Echo Klassik" award winner Deborah Sasson herself. Her multifaceted and powerful soprano voice is ideally suited for this mixture of opera and musical.
Musical superstar Uwe Kroeger could also be won for this outstanding production and will take on the prominent role of the Phantom. Among other roles, he has embodied all the major leading roles in the Viennese and German premiere theaters for more than a decade, including Hamburg's "Phantom of the Opera," "Elisabeth," "Les Miserables" and "Miss Saigon."
The special effects by Daniel Stryecki, an internationally renowned multimedia artist, are worth the musical alone. In ways never before seen on tour, the most elaborate, fast-paced video tracking shots are used through the labyrinth of the Paris Opera. During the chase through the catacombs, falling boulders block the way, and the famous chandelier falls from the ceiling with a loud roar, causing many audience members to sink into their chairs in horror.
An 18-piece orchestra, specially assembled by music director Peter Oleksiak, plays live music.
