The Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show on Broadway and in conjunction with their 30th anniversary, their having a one-night-only musical concert on April 18th, 8.30pm at the Manhattan Ballroom, Berjaya Times Square Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.  Since it's a 1 night show, tickets should be limited and if you've been wanting a taste of this iconic tale of mystery and romance from this bestseller world theatre, this musical concert should be able to satisfy your cravings. Read more for more deets.



Remembering back during high school, The Phantom of the Opera was one of the compulsory books all of us had to read, thank goodness it wasn't in French as the original was a novel by French writer Gaston Leroux. Anyhow, I know that most of you know the storyline already either you've read the book or watched the movie. If you've been a fan, you'll surely would want to be part of this sing along to classics from the musical such as the Phantom of The Opera, Music of The Night, Masquerade and All I Ask of You, in addition to songs from other musicals, as performed by two world-class theatre performers Michael Cormick and Claire Lyon, who have played the leading role of Raoul and Christine in previous productions of The Phantom of The Opera. 


As mentioned above, Phantom Of The Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history by a wide margin, having just celebrated its 11,000th Broadway performance on 7th July 2014. That's surely a lot of stages, it's a tale of romance and mystery of a young soprano performer Christine in a love triangle with the rumoured Phantom and childhood sweetheart Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny, at the Paris Opera House. This popular production has brought with it, the popularity of songs like Think of Me, All I Ask, Music of The Night and Point of No Return. 

It is believed that the box office revenues for Phantom of The Opera are higher than any film or stage play in history, including Titanic, ET, Star Wars and Avatar. The musical’s songbook is as iconic as the show—Webber’s music was immortalized forever in popular culture through shows like American Idol and through a film adaption of the musical, starring Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum. 

Thanks, to events and entertainment specialist Milestone Production, they're bringing in this 75 minutes of the show’s best songs, as well as other musicals, to you. Leading in this musical concert as the male singer is Michael Cormick, an internationally renowned singer and actor with a diverse career throughout Australia, the UK and Europe. Michael played the romantic lead of Raoul in the London West End production for three years and toured with “The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber” as the principle cast singing Phantom’s songs. Holding her own next to Michael is Claire Lyon, an Australian actress, singer and recording artist, who has played the role of Christine in the World Tour of the musical from 2012-2015. She also continued the role in its standalone sequel ‘Love Never Dies’ for the Australian National Tour as both an understudy and a performer. 


These two gifted performers will belt out tunes under the leadership of Australian music director Bernard Walz. Bernard is a protege of the late Dr Tommy Tycho and conducting student of the late Professor John Hopkins. Walz has even toured with the original Phantom, Michael Crawford, and has performed internationally for the past 25 years. A classically-trained pianist, Bernard’s concert and cabaret performances cross the boundaries between classical and popular genres. He is critically admired by his peers for his highly developed sense of theatre and engaging on-stage personality. 

In addition to basking in the enthralling music and songs, you will be happy to know that a portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales will be channelled to the Tuanku Ja’afar Educational Trust, which means that your support for this show will be helping to improve a child’s future.
