Phantom of the Opera 2013 US Tour
USA- New York, NY | Apr 2 2013 | (23:06:20 - EST)
The Phantom of the Opera 2013 fans in the United States will have to wait no longer – the US tour is coming back, and has been reinvented into an even more spectacular production than before. Cameron Mackintosh and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group announced recently that their spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 2013 will launch a North American tour beginning this November in Providence, Rhode Island.
With newly reinvented staging and stunning scenic design, this new version of The Phantom of the Opera, the most successful musical of all-time, will play more than 20 multi-week engagements through next year, including Cincinnati, OH and Minneapolis, MN.
First unveiled in March, 2012 in Plymouth, England, this reinvented PHANTOM has been an enormous box-office and critical hit throughout the U.K.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said, “It’s wonderful to have a new production of The Phantom of the Opera 2013 touring America in the same year that the show celebrates 25 years on Broadway. Director Laurence Connor has done an amazing job and this production has received huge critical acclaim in the UK.”
Cameron Mackintosh said, ''After a glorious celebration last month of 25 phenomenal years on Broadway with no end in sight, I'm delighted to be able to bring this dazzling new production of PHANTOM --which has been phenomenally well-received by both audiences and critics in the U.K this past year -- to America. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, I am confident American audiences will fall in love with the PHANTOM in his new guise -- for the first time or all over again.”
Big money for the Phantom of the Opera 2013
Phantom of the Opera continues to be a record-breaking hit in London and on Broadway. Since it's debut in 1987, the production has grossed over $890 million, and that's just the numbers from the Broadway show.
The show has won more than 70 major theater awards, including seven 1988 Tony Awards (including Best Musical) and three Olivier Awards in the West End. The original cast recording, with over 40 million copies sold worldwide, is the best-selling cast recording of all time. In September 2010, student productions of The Phantom of the Opera 2013 started being licensed through R&H Theatricals, and so far have been performed at hundreds of high schools and colleges across the U.S. and in Canada.
Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera 2013 tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
Let the Opera begin!
