My students adore this musical!

The absolute most beautiful voices will fill your heart and mind with the "music of the night." I'm a school teacher and for two Halloween season we have taken the time to watch this in my classroom. My middle school students are mesmerized with the hauntingly beautiful sounds of this musical.

Absolutely FANTASTIC DVD. The bonus celebration is so outstanding there are not enough words for praise. It brought me to tears when the former Phantom tenors with the female lead soprano did a sequence that was surreal. Of course, I have seen the stage production in London and, this year, in a neighboring City. Saw the movie at theater, on HBO and now, again on this DVD. The bonus celebration alone was worth the price of this DVD.

Phantastic.

I don't have the time to ramble about the intricate costumes, the gorgeous filming, the wonderful concert set, or the OUTSTANDING, RIDICULOUSLY OUTSTANDING acting that sweeps me off my feet every time I watch it. I'm enthralled by this particular performance, and I know many POTO fans hold it close to their hearts as well-- it feels historic, even among anniversaries, and I am so grateful to have been alive when it opened. Ramin, Sierra, and Hadley are my favorite trio, all possessing such rich chemistry with each other and the characters. Not to mention, the MUSIC! I don't see how anyone could disrespect such beautiful, emotive melodies, especially when sung by such talented voices. My friends and I return to this film again and again when we get together, we love it so much. It's well worth your money, in my opinion. If you're only going to watch it once, make it this version. It's even better if this is the first soundtrack you hear. And I recommend reading the novel, as well. Webber's adaptation makes numerous changes to the original story, and while I respect both deeply, they are very different. This is all I have time for, but YES. Simply, YES.

DID I MENTION THIS VERSION COMES WITH A REUNION OF PAST ACTORS AT THE END?

Ok, sorry. I'm done, now.

Royal Albert is the best Phantom presentation yet

This is a magnificent presentation of the classic musical. Ramin Karimloo is perfect as The Phantom and Sierra Boggess is drop-dead gorgeous. FIVE STARS + The Goatesians Seal of Approaval™ for excellence.
