This review is from: The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall - Double Play (Blu-ray + DVD) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)Am a fan of musicals but never previously with Phantom, only version seen prior to this was the 2004 film.
I purchased for my wife as an extra at Xmas, we watched it last night and I was blown away by the performance of all cast members. The staging was fabulous considering the venue it was played and audio/video quality on the Blu Ray was a massive selling point of the format.
The finale with the Lord and previous cast members singing the two most popular songs was a perfect ending and great to see Michael Crawford up there and very emotional, i would imagine the reason he does not sing is that he rushed from the Palladium where he was performing in Wizard of Oz that night.
Now if only they could do something similar for Evita!
