Opera on the Avalon
The Phantom of the Opera follows a deformed composer who haunts the grand Paris Opera House. Sheltered from the outside world in an underground cavern, the lonely, romantic man tutors and composes operas for Christine, a gorgeous young soprano star-to-be. As Christine’s star rises, and a handsome suitor from her past enters the picture, the Phantom grows mad, terrorizing the opera house owners and company with his murderous ways. Still, Christine finds herself drawn to the mystery man.
 
The Phantom of the Opera is coming in November 2019. Directed by Donna Fletcher, and conducted by Jeffrey Huard (Assistant Conductor of the original 1988 Broadway cast, and Musical Director/Conductor of the 1989 Toronto cast of The Phantom of the Opera), and Marie Steffen as choreographer.
