On “The Phantom of The Opera”

I’ve (re)seen “The Phantom of The Opera”, by Andrew Lloyd Webber (offered for free this weekend here). Some thoughts? (with spoilers!)

  • The theme of the play is a bit uninteresting. Opera, different century. Yet, it’s not hard to imagine yourself in the shoes of the characters and feel their emotions.
  • The main theme of the play is beauty. It’s a very nice play.
  • I like two songs:
  • The play requires some attention, you should know the main subject, at least for me it was a bit hard to follow at first, I’ve watched the play a few times, seen the movie, listened to the songs some times.
  • The actors (Ramin Karimloo, Sierra Boggess, Hadley Fraser, Wendy Ferguson, Barry James, Gareth Snook, Liz Robertson, Wynne Evans, Sergei Polunin) played well.
  • The play reminds me of personal experiences.
  • Also, the play reminds me of how I perceive Great Britan. I’ve lived in the UK for one year, and while for certainly there isn’t a typical Englishman and an average person, some things from the play remind me of England.
  • I’ve written about the play two times in the past: 1 & 2.
  • When you watch the movie, it’s not so much about the action, but what do people say and what feelings they start in you. The script, while unconventional at times, is not very complicated. But the words that accompany the script fill in a lot of emotions.
  • Some of the reactions of the characters are exaggerated, but, still, I liked the play a lot. Perhaps even due to this, not in spite of this.
