Memory Lane: Phantom
This was the Southwest Premiere of the Kopit and Yeston version of Phantom. I was very lucky to be one of the first Christines. In this scene, she has just gotten a job at the opera house as a dresser to Carlotta (ABSOLUTELY NO RELATION to the book, btw) and sings about how excited she is to be on the edge of fulfilling her dreams.
What you can't see well here is that the set was a really elaborate three-level affair that was designed as an architectural cross-section of the real Opera Garnier.
I've already gotten a few requests on the YouTube channel to post more from this show, so at some point when I get a chance I will probably show the rest of this scene.
