Preview December 26, 2016 Encore Staff

DETROIT—Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera will enjoy an engagement at the Detroit Opera House January 11–22, 2017.  With new staging and scenic design, this new version is performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this one of the largest productions on tour in North America.   

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.
