Presented by Jacksonville Opera Theatre at Jacksonville State University* with support from the Oxford Performing Arts Center.
While most of our musicals are National Broadway touring productions, this is a locally produced show.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, with lyrics by Charles Hart, additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe, and a book by Lloyd Webber and Stilgoe. Based on the classic novel “Le Fantôme de l’Opéra” by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 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. Its sensational score includes ‘Think of Me,’ ‘Angel of Music,’ ‘Music of the Night,’ ‘All I Ask of You,’ ‘Masquerade’ and the title song.
*Please note that the cast and musicians are students at Jacksonville State and this is not a touring production. The Oxford Performing Arts Center is proud to be the official performance venue of Jacksonville Opera Theatre.
