ファンタム・ラスベガスHP（音声が始まります） ファンタム・ラスベガス video clip（音声あり)： Phantom役 Anthony Crivelloとクリスティーン役Elizabeth Loyacanoの熱演 Phantom (Anthony Crivello) and Christine (Elizabeth Loyacano) Phantom at The Venetian reunites Andrew Lloyd Webber, director Hal Prince, choreographer Gillian Lynne and others from the show's original creative team, who together reconceived their show into a 95-minute spectacular, including each and every song from the original production. From the moment you enter the magnificent custom-built theatre, you find yourself in the famed Paris Opera House immediately entranced in the Phantom's world.
By incorporating special effects and enhancements made possible today by modern technology into the timeless music and story of Phantom, new audiences and loyal fans alike will be awed by and all-new Phantom.
In anticipation of opening Phantom for the first time ever in Las Vegas, The Venetian employed David Rockwell, one of the most renowned designers of today, to design the $40 million custom-built theatre. Rockwell’s legendary work includes the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles and Nobu Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The unique theatre was designed to create an ongoing sense of anticipation with a layout that literally surrounds the audience in action.
The Phantom of the Opera has grossed more than $3 billion worldwide since its London premiere in 1986, having played more than 65,000 performances in 20 countries and 110 cities.
I saw the Phantom Las Vegas on 6/8/07 and 7/30/07, twice in a row. For the show on 6/8/07, I purchaed it on-line 3 weeks in advance. It was the 3rd row and 3 to 4 seats on the left. It was about 12 to 14 feet (4 - 4.5 m) from the stage and perfect. Becuase there was an orchestra under the stage, and a conductor's head was sticking out in the middle of the stage. The eye level to the stage was perfect as well. It was $157.
When I saw it on 7/30/07, I purchased it at "Ticket-4-Less" discount ticket booth on Sunday for the Tomorrow Monday ticket at a half price plus fees of $64. This show is dark on Sunday. The dicounted tickets are for the right section or the left section in Orchestra. Our seats were around 10th row in the right side and the 1st and 2nd seats from the isle. They were not bad.
The musical was fantastic. For both shows, Anthony Crivello was the Phantom and Elizabeth Loyacano was Christine. Both of them have great voice with volume. The costumes are colorful. Especially the mascarade scene dresses were colorful and artistic.
To see the cast, click "Meet The People" from the Phantom home page. You can see the profile and photo of each cast. There are 7 ballet dancers in the back. One of them is Erina Noda from Tokyo, Japan. She is small but danced very well.
The special effects were wonderful. After the musical, the audiences cheered with standing ovations. The theatre holds 1815 seats.
Elizabeth Loyacano who played Christine left the show on 8/17/07. Her under study, Kristen Hertzenberg, replaced the role.
