Phantom

From the moment I walked into the Broadway, and looked up at the giant chandelier hanging in the middle of the room, I knew that this would be something different. I have never been to a play or opera before, so this would have a new experience for me. This was the day I saw myfirst Broadway show, "Phantom of the Opera."
The show was to start at 8PM; however we were to meet in school at 6:30PM, and of course the bus ran late. However, we were still in time for the play. The Phantom of the Opera is set in the late 1800's in Paris France. As, the curtains opened, I felt like I was really there. As the play started, I fell in love with the characters. As Christine and Raoul's romance became more apparent, I became more excited. Their story was beautiful, in every definition of the word. Yet at the same time, I couldn't help but feel bad for the Phantom. He truly loved Christine.
I think what really made this play so special is the way that it involved the audience. At various times in the play, it feels like we are in the audience of that opera house, especially at the end of thefirst act when the chandelier fell. I was amazed on how that was done. Later, when the police were looking for the Phantom, he seems to appear all over the theater, and his voice coming in every direction. The music was also incredible and thought provoking. The whole show spoke the truth of the Phantom, the truth of the love between Christine and Raoul, and the truth of the conflict between them.
I must say, this show was utterly amazing and spectacular. It well-done and was a great show. The romance and conflict between the characters were so engaging and real, that it made it a reality. I definitely recommend this show.
