Review - Phantom of the Opera: 25th Anniversary Live at the Royal Albert Hall


Broadway’s longest-running production of all time celebrates a triumphant quarter century on stage with The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, coming to Blu-rayTM – with perfect hi-def picture and perfect hi-def sound- DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on February 7, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. On October 2, 2011, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer Cameron Mackintosh marked the 25th anniversary of their beloved musical extravaganza, “The Phantom of the Opera,” with a lavishly staged production at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall that was beamed live via satellite to cinemas across the globe. The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall marks the first time a live performance of the blockbuster musical has been made available for home viewing, making it a must-have anniversary release for fans everywhere.


I am a huge fan of Phantom of the Opera.  When I heard about the 25th Anniversary Live at the Royal Albert Hall release, I was so excited!  I immediately opened the case and put the Blu-ray version in the player.  I still can't believe that it was done live.  This particular performance really brought the Phantom of the Opera to life.  Between the superb acting skills, talented singers and wonderful script, this is a must see film for fans everywhere!

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this film for review purposes.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.
