One of the best Musical we all loved is finally coming to Manila to give Filipinos a one of a kind experience of the classic Andrew Lloyd Webber Extravaganza. Phantom of the Opera now comes in the country for more than a month of shows that will give most of us who haven't seen it live a taste of an authentic live performance of the well loved musical.
Known as the longest running musical both on West End and Broadway and recorded to be seen by approximately 130 million people worldwide. Thanks to Lunchbox Theatrical Production, we will be seeing the official touring cast for the first time on our local theaters. With almost 130 cast, crew and orchestra members and of course an excellent material, Phantom of the Opera is no doubt a show worth looking forward to.
“This touring production of The Phantom of the Opera is as fine as any version you might see in the West End or on Broadway—it is the same superb design, and we invest a great deal to ensure it is of the highest standards.” said Tim McFarlane, Managing Director of The Really Useful Company Asia Pacific.
Joining the international cast and orchestra are some of Manila’s talented local musicians who have been specially selected by Guy Simpson, the Musical Director during auditions conducted in Manila earlier this year. Alongside these Filipino musicians is the talented Filipino tenor, Dondi Ong, who will be the role of Piangi in some performances. Mr. Ong has trained at the UP College of Music gaining a degree in Music, majoring in Voice. He graduated as Magna Cum Laude and the class valedictorian. As a performer, he has played lead and prominent roles in various Filipino plays, zarzuelas and musicals and has travelled to the US, Europe and Japan to perform for foreign audiences.
For somebody like me who didn't have the luxury of going to Broadway and West End, I'm very thankful to Lunchbox Theatrical for bringing this show to our shores and let us Filipinos experience authentic company straight from outside the country specially from West End and Broadway. If you think you're a big Phantom of the Opera fan then you should not miss this because this might be the only chance you can see it on the flesh.
