Ok, so recently I was introduced to the Phantom of the Opera and I totally fell in love!! Of course I, being the only musical geek in my family, have no one to relate to *sniffle*...anyways, I figured some of you must like it. :thumbsup2

What are your guy’s favorite songs and Characters? I like Sierra from the 25th anniversary play better than Emmy Rossum in the movie. I think Gerard captures the personality and essence of the phantom more. (I love his rugged singing to even though none of them are like the phantom described in the book.) lol. As for Raul, I like Patrick better. Song wise, I like Music of the Night, Masquerade, Why so silent, Notes, etc.
Any ways, what about you guys?
:cool2:

PHANTOM! :charac2::thumbsup2 My friend is a huge Phantom fan. She watches it almost every other day. Sadly I only got to watch the first act of the 25th anniversary and I loved it! I still need to see the movie although I have seen clips on youtube. We may do it at our school and I would be so happy! :cool1: I prefer Sierra Boguess but the others I have not seen enough of to really judge. The title song is my favorite, it's just so EPIC and I can play it on my Smule piano app! Yay for musical geeks.:goodvibes I love being in my school's theater although I don't know too much about actual musicals because I'v only seen a few I enjoy them.popcorn::

Yeah it's a shame some people don't like Phantom & musicals, I love them! Hopes to you that you get to watch the whole thing. One of my friends loves to movie and the other the stage version so I hope to watch them in the future.popcorn::
P.S. Now I have Phantom stuck in my head, it's not a bad thing luckily!=)

I went to Phantom of the Opera in 2008 in London. Loved it.
Ramin is so cute and i really love his voice.

Summer 2010 I saw Love never Dies (also in London), also called Phantom 2.
I love the Phantom music but I think the story is weird and I was a bit disappointed about the end.
I was so lucky to see Ramin and Sierra in Love never Dies. Perfect couple.

For Phantom fans; In Paris you can visit the Opera where they filmed parts of the movie. :banana:
And for 6 euros you can do a tour and see.... Box nr. 5!!!

I love it!

I've seen the movie, and I've read the book, but unfortunately I've never beeen to see the show. I really want to, because I hear it's awesome, and because I'm into Theatre, but I haven't yet. :sad1: :sad2: I did my end of the year theatre project on the show. My teacher loved my board so much that he kept it.

Our high school did Phantom of the Opera as their musical last year and it was PHENOMENAL! I didn't think that anyone at our high school had singing talent like that!

That's awesome! I love to discover people's amazing singing skills when you don't expect it. Plus it's nice to hear schools do it because we are unsure if we could put it on.

Really?! I would love to see Box #5! Sadly living in the states I’m only able to go to Broadway. I’m so depressed I won’t see Ramin or Sierra. *sniffle*. But a Phantom is a Phantom, amirght? :rolleyes1

I’m actually seeing it next month and don’t know what to wear? I want to look nice, but not over-did. Any tips?

I can post some Opera pictures if you want?

I'm from Holland, we have awsome musicals here but every year my mom, sister and i go on a trip to London for some shopping and to see several shows on west end.

Broadway is like heaven to us, haha. But i don't like the idea of being 7/8 hours in a plane.

my favorite Phantom/Christine duo is forever Micheal Crawford and Sarah Brightman.


Ramin and Sierra are a close second though.

my favorite song is either The Phantom of The Opera or Down Once More.

Down Once More is definitely one of my favorites. My friend and I can recite the whole scene. We always seem to sing it whenever we're bored :upsidedow

I'm in marching band and our theme this year for our halftime show is Phantom of the Opera!! I'm anxious for band practice to start. I watched part of the 2004 version and LOVED the music. I'm going all band geeky on you now. Sorry. ;D
I'm just really excited for our show this year!!

What is "Love Never Dies" about?

You could look it up on Wikipedia but read at your own expense because it does give out spoilers...If your guys are looking for a laugh then go to blackpearprincess on youtube. She mimes different plays and stuff and it is hilarious!!! I love notes and down once more. Shes sooo funny!! :rotfl2:

It contains the original screenplay of the phantom film and includes many backstage photos. It was just 10 pounds :)

I'm a phan. I'm partway through the novel right now. My marching band is actually performing the title piece from the musical in our field show this fall! Quite exciting.

As for performers/songs, the 25th is pretty much a Dream Cast. Ramin Karimloo is an amazing performer, and I love his interpretation (though I may be biased from his performance as Enjolras in Les Mis's 25th Anniversary.) I don't care much for Gerard Butler's phantom; for a man who is supposed to be the greatest tenor in the world, his Music of the Night needs some work. But I don't care much for the movie, so :guilty:

And, to continue with my apparent differences, I don't like Love Never Dies. I like the music, but the plot....well I'm still attempting to salvage an understanding of it.

I swear, I'm not trying to be argumentative!
