5.0 out of 5 stars Truly a magnificent example of Musical Theatre, 11 Sept. 2006
This review is from: The Phantom of the Opera (Audio CD)
Phantom of The Opera remains as enchanting today as it did 25 years ago. The original London cast is a gem and should find itself on every shelf of a Musicals fan. The real delight is hearing Sarah Brightman in one of her few Musicals roles. The work of Michael Crawford is strong and he glides through the role of the Phantom with romance whilst also retaining the sinister nuances of the character.

Sarah Brightman of course, is now a star in her own right, but she is truly the star of the show. After all, we must believe that the Phantom really does fall in love with her voice. And he does. And we all do. The voice of young(er) Sarah Brightman is shrill and almost boy-like and it is this quality which cements her assumption of the role. She sings at least 3 times more than any other character and is pure joy. When you have a composer composing songs specifically for your voice it's impossible not to sing your best, and this recording proves this.

Michael Crawford and Steve Barton sing beautifully and the final trio for Christine Raoul and the Phantom is absolutely gorgeous. Far superior to the film cast in my opinion, but both recordings are a must for Phantom fans and Musicals fans everywhere!
