Yeahh...was a great show~! Got so pumped up for the show that I borrowed the OST from the Phantom movie to listen everyday before the day of the show. Hahaha..so before the play started, I'd already got a few songs singing in my head. Seriously, my favourite was Angel Of Music. After the watching the play, I still like that song, plus a few more, Phantom of the Opera and Masquerade is nice. :)
Anyway, details of my show:
Venue: Esplanade, Singapore
Date: 22 April 2007
Very nice place indeed. The setup was amazing~! The seats we got were not too bad. Balcony seats though, one bad thing about it, i think we couldn't see the left side of the stage. Which is only a small part I think. Coz there's one scene where everyone looks toward that side and all I could see was the side of the stage. Not sure whether there's anything there or not. Coz there was another scene when everyone looks up and there were really nothing there. :P
It was a superb show for me. Raoul was sooooooo leng chai~! Haha...they made the Phantom look really ugly. Kristy was okay, I think the one that plays her friend is more stand out compared to her. But can salute all the sopranos...very good la. I liked the show overall, but comparing to the CD I've been listening, I think there was suppose to be a sword-fight scene which I dun think was put in. Besides that, it's all good. Surprise factor there, comedy also got...annnnddddd....yes, I cried~! So sad coming to the last part. Got magic show also... the part where he disappear! (Well, we all know he went through that hole behind the chair la.. :P ) Still my favourite scene would be the part where Phantom kidnaps Kristy to his dungeon-like home. The whole stage was changed, he was rowing a bot, candles came up the stage...really awed by it. If you miss this one time..well...if it ever comes to tour again, you HAVE to watch it. It's a classic and you have to watch it at least once in your lifetime! It's all worth my SGD120. I'm still listening to the soundtrack till today!
Had the urge to get the programs...but it was way too expensive. SGD25!Actually was more interested in the mug. Very special mug. The mask of the phantom will appear when u pour in hot water..not sure how much is the mug...thot I saw SGD30. The movie poster was SGD10. You see the "SGD" word?? it's RM x 2.3 ~~!! SO in the end, didn't get anything la. Just memories of the show and some pics taken that day is good enough~! Which reminds me, need to ask sis-in-law for the pic.
Alritey..let's hope for a good day for everyone today~! I hope I have one free day.
