The Phantom Of The Opera (2011 Cast)

Andrew Lloyd Webber (b. 1948) is the most successful composer of musicals of his generation and also a breaker of molds for the type. His predecessors were, for the most part, American: New York-based songwriters steeped in Broadway tradition. Lloyd Webber saw his share of shows as a child, too, but he was born in London, the son of William Lloyd Webber, Director of the London College of Music, and was trained at the Royal Academy of Music, hardly the sort of place where you'd be likely to hear Oklahoma!

Nevertheless, Lloyd Webber hooked up with lyricist Tim Rice, and the two began work on what would be a typical project for them, a musical based on the Biblical story of Joseph and his coat of many colors. Titled Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, it brought in a strong rock & roll influence. After writing a second unproduced musical, the two hit on the idea of writing a musical based on the life of Jesus Christ from the point of view of Judas (not the sort of idea likely to occur to a Broadway composer) and, again, imbued with rock. Unable to finance a stage version, Lloyd Webber and Rice did manage to record their show, and Jesus Christ Superstar went on to sales in the millions all over the world. The hit musical version followed.

Lloyd Webber and Rice then split, with the composer writing film scores and working on an abortive musical with playwright Alan Ayckbourne (Jeeves), after which Rice returned with another audacious idea: a musical based on the life of Argentine dictator (or dictator's wife, depending on how you look at it) Eva Peron. Evita (1976) repeated the pattern of Jesus Christ Superstar, with its hit record album followed by a successful theatrical run in the West End and then on Broadway.

The Lloyd Webber-Rice partnership, having proved itself again, was severed (Rice went on to write Chess), and Lloyd Webber next wrote a musical revue based on T.S. Eliot's whimsical poems about Cats (1981). This time, the show came before the album, and it's still running. By this time, Lloyd Webber had largely abandoned the rock elements of his work in favor of what critics found a pastiche style that borrowed from classical and opera sources. He had also become a brand name (and a corporation, the Really Useful Company) that assured at least a modest success for subsequent shows, though critics were often unimpressed with his efforts.

Downgrading the status of his lyricists, Lloyd Webber went on to a series of successful shows (Song and Dance, Starlight Express) before scoring another long- (and still-) running hit in 1987 (1988 in New York) with a musical adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera. Aspects of Love (1989-1990) was less successful, however. Lloyd Webber debuted a musical adaptation of the Billy Wilder film Sunset Boulevard in the early '90s, and it proved to be one of his rare disappointments, failing to earn either good reviews or healthy ticket sales. In 1996, Alan Parker adapted Evita for the screen; Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice contributed a new song, "You Must Love Me," to the production, which starred Madonna. "You Must Love Me" won the Best Original Song award at the 1997 Academy Awards. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Michael is the ONLY Phantom. No one else compares. Stunning performance from Crawford. I miss him.
I remember the first time I saw it live... I feel in love with it... I bought the tickets for my wife for Christmas and told her to take friend but she dragged me instead... And the rest is history.... Best show ever... Can't wait till it comes to phoenix so I can see it again will be my third time...

I just love phantom of the opera! SING FOR ME! Think of me remember me!

I don't get what's so great about Ben Lewis. Ramin is a GOD compared to him and in general. Sorry:/
Phantom is one of my top three musicals. What makes Phantom unique is that it's music is not that common in the theater. It is the only musical I know where there really are not that many ensemble songs. It is the most beautiful show in existence.

Don't read this cause it actually works. You'll be kissed on the nearest Friday. Tommorow will be the best day of your life. Now you started reading this so don't stop.if you don't post this in two days you will die. Post this song on five songs in 143 minuets and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary cause it actually works!
I LOVE RAMIN!!!!
The ending males me cry every time with out fail
Don't read this cause it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday. Tomorrow will be the best day if your life. Now you started reading this so don't stop. If you don't post this in two days you will die. Post this song on five songs in 143 minutes and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters. This is scary because it actually works.
Let it go
passionate when he needed to be and angry when it was needed. My soul can soar with Ramin and crash with Ben.
I don't know why Ben Lewis is always the one they comment on. He for one is a terrible actor and a terrible singer. On pandora, as soon as I heard Ramin's angelic voice, I fell in love with him. When I got the movie love never dies, I was greatly disappointed that they would put that on DVD. He has that accent when he sings too. I feel like he is shouting at Anna o'byrnes the whole time. He was supposed to be that guy that just found out he had a son after ten years of loneliness. Ramin was pass
Ramin is so good and so is sierra, they are a perfect musical pair!!! Ramin sounds amazing. I love how he sometimes growls in the show! Amazing.
Actually it's a musical production that was filmed and put on a DVD, it's not an actual movie. Trust me.....BIG DIFFERENCE!! ! ! !

I want to be Christine. Best movie ever

I love it

How do I contact you. A phone number for my problem would be best!
He is so good in the twenty fifth anniversary edition although I believe that Ben Lewis is the best for love never dies.
So sad... Phantom, I'll be yours. Just Ramin Noodle or whatever get some acting lessons then we'll be together. Monsieur Andre was very cute, also.
This is my dream right here, I act it out everyday, this is what I want to do when I grow up! Be Christine!!! ! ! ! ! ! ' ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ' ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

Omg if I could be Christine Daae in a production of this my life would be complete! The songs are so beautiful, and at the same time; scary. I can't express how grateful I am to Andrew Weber, this music is pretty much my life right now! Follow for a follow if you would like to play Christine or the Phantom;)
