Texas Tech University's Opera Theatre, in cooperation with Moonlight Broadway, presents one of the greatest musicals of the past 50 years: Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera.
The production will star Broadway veteran, Texas Tech alumnus, and Lubbock native DAVID GASCHEN, reprising the title role he has played more than 1,500 times worldwide.
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.
