    The Phantom Of The Opera

    • 328 Words
    • 2 Pages

    For most of my life, I have loved the performing arts, particularly theater. One of the first musicals I ever admired was The Phantom of the Opera, which a friend introduced me to in the 7th grade. As soon as I watched it, I knew that I needed to experience it live on stage. Fortunately, after lots of begging and pleading, I convinced my mother to take me to New York to see it on Broadway during the summer of 2014. Starring in the production at that time were two of my theater idols: Norm Lewis…

    • 3 Pages

    Italian opera and French opera both contrast in many ways but are both as unique as each other and the way in which their music is expressed is very powerful.

As it developed, it became available to the general audience.…

    The “Phantom of the Opera” expresses that pity and fear can change the way a character acts or feels about another. The pity of the movie shows more about the love because Christine was in love with the Phantom because of his troublesome past. The fear part is to show that people feared the Phantom and he would kill people or threaten to do so. Some events that were expressed by fear or pity are when Madam Giry saved the Phantom from his beating as a childhood; another is Raoul having the fear…

    • 1760 Words
    • 8 Pages

    When most people hear the words “opera singer,” their mind conjures up images of bloated women, plunked down in the middle of a stage, illuminated by a spotlight, dressed in exotic costumes, and screaming at the top of the lungs in even more exotic languages. But frankly that stereotype could not be more wrong; I know that for a fact. If those stereotypes were right, then I would not be writing this paper. I love opera. I have been addicted to it for over five years now, and the fire that…

    The Lubbock Moonlight Musicals in partnership with Texas Tech’s School of Music definitely did not disappoint with their amazing performance of Phantom of the Opera. This is one of the most well know and classical musicals but doesn’t fit into any specific category. It is not exactly classic musical theatre due to the music being for classically trained singers, but it is not exactly an opera either because it has dialogue while an opera is traditionally completely sung. This makes for a…
