It’s hard to believe I have loved Phantom of the Opera for five years. It is one of those musicals I have fallen in love with through the songs. My mom recommended the musical to me. I decided to request the musical on Pandora. The moment I heard the songs, I fell in love. I may not have known the plot yet, but I just loved the music. In that moment, I badly wanted to see the stage show. I heard it was coming to the Peace Center in May 2014, and I requested that my mom take me to see it.
When I went to see it with my mom, I was spellbound. I was choked up watching it. I could not take my eyes off of that stage. During the overture, I could not takes off the chandelier. The only time I moved was during the crashing of the chandelier. I fell in love with Christine during this production.
So now five years later, I still love Phantom of the Opera. It is a hauntingly beautiful musical. I always loved Christine and Raoul together. I always knew that Phantom was too dangerous and destructive for her. Eventually I realized that Raoul would never hurt Christine. Some favorite Phantom of the Opera songs are “All I Ask of You”, “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again”, “Music Of the Night”, “Angel of Music”, “Think of Me”, and “Phantom of the Opera”. Just wanted to say that I have loved Phantom for five years now.
