The Phantom is returning to Paris

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of its existence, Phantom of the Opera is coming to Paris - the city where he originates from. The show will be playing at the Théatre Mogador, which is quite close to the Paris opera where the phantom supposedly lived underneath. In reality, they do have water under this building, but it is a cistern. Nevertheless, many people still claim the opera house is haunted...

Phantom will be in a French version and will be titled Le Fantôme de l'Opéra. The role of Christine Daae will be played by Sierra Boggess, who is about the best Christine I've ever seen in this role and the Phantom will be Gardar Thor Cortes, a singer from Iceland who also played the phantom in Love Never Dies in Hamburg. There is also a role for a Belgian guy, who's doing Monsieur Firmin.

We already have our tickets for one of these performances and will be staying for a couple of days in Paris. The show starts in October, on the date of the first performance in England 30 years ago. We were also at the 25th anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall, so I suppose we'll be doing the anniversary years in the future (as long as we are still there....)
