In Andrew Lloyd Webber’s original musical masterpiece, far beneath the majestic Paris Opera house, the Phantom hides in a shadowy existence. Though shamed by his deformities and greatly feared by many the love he has for his beautiful protégée Christine is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
For over 30 years, The Phantom of the Opera has wowed audiences across the globe. It is the most viewed, highest grossing form of entertainment in history, and Nexus BYT is the first youth theatre in the Southern Hemisphere to be granted permission to perform Andrew Lloyd Webbers classic right here for Bendigo audiences. Performed by an exceptionally talented cast of young people.
Some of our Audience Reviews:
"Congratulations Nexus. The preparation that must have gone into The Phantom of the Opera has certainly paid off. What an incredibly amazing show. The talent these teens possess left me in awe. I rode the full roller coaster of emotions throughout the show. I laughed, I was in love. I was on the edge of my seat in a few parts and I certainly cried. There were moments during some of the songs where I closed my eyes because the voices were so captivating, and it was beautiful to just feel the emotion and the sound of such talent. A feast for the senses. I also loved the costumes and sets.
I'm still reliving moments, days later. I absolutely loved it!" - Donna
"Seriously, these kids are scary talented! It's quite possible they don't fully appreciate just how GOOD they are. The words amazing, incredible, spectacular and awesome fit perfectly. The buzz that The Phantom of the Opera has generated is real - people should be excited by what they've witnessed! And great job Julie, as Director for having the passion (and persistence) to obtain the rights to Phantom, for believing in the strength of cast, backstage crew and orchestra in their ability to step up and deliver the goods in a most outstanding run of performances. You all should be so proud of what your hard work, dedication and talent has achieved. Chookas for next year!" - Andy
