THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (article first published : 2004-08-1)

The Phantom of the Opera presented by Pieter Toerien and The Really Useful Group, has now moved from Cape Town to the State Theatre in Pretoria.

The part of Christine in the Pretoria production will be played by Lana English, with Amy Hudson playing the part on Sundays. Andre Schwartz plays The Phantom, with Rory Rootenberg taking the role on Sundays. Brennan Holder will play the young male romantic lead.

Based on the classic novel Le Fantome de l’Opera by Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with young soprano Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents, by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

The Phantom of the Opera runs at the State Theatre in Pretoria until September 19. Tickets are available through Computicket.
