Re: What is your favorite performance of "The Phantom of the Opera?"

The 2014 is my favorite, and I thought that Gerard Butler made the phantom into a very sympathetic and sad character.

Re: What is your favorite performance of "The Phantom of the Opera?"

You know, I'm too old for this, and the play I might still like better than the novel. I saw the play I think when I was about 10, or 9, with my class at school on a field trip. I lived in Saint Augustine, Northeastern Florida, the oldest continuing city in the US. When I read the book I think I was 14. I read it twice. Oh, I saw it live 4 times, 3 times with Chris Mann. Do a search and I come up meeting him backstage, last time under "Chris Phantom of the Opera."

You know, I believe/d the beginning of the novel saying it was real.

Re: What is your favorite performance of "The Phantom of the Opera?"

Favourite film version:
Phantom of the Paradise.

Favourite television version:
The 1990 miniseries starring Charles Dance.

Favourite versions of Webber's musical:
1) John-Owen Jones and Katie Hall for overall voice/emotion combo.
2) Jonathan Roxmouth for vocal power alone.
3) Michael Crawford/Sarah Brightman for the Final Lair alone. The last Final Lair he ever performed was extremely emotional. I can still hear him crying out: "I love you!" as Christine flees with Raoul.

Favourite version of LND, the sequel:
Ben Lewis in the filmed Australian production.

Favourite Phantom musical songs from adaptations that are not the Webber version:
1) "You Are Music" from the Yeston/Kopit musical.
2) "While Floating High Above" (the solo, not the duet) from the Ken Hill musical.

Re: What is your favorite performance of "The Phantom of the Opera?"

Wow! That's impressive. I probably liked the 1st version I saw of the 4 different versions I saw of the musical: once in New Orleans, the 2004, the 2011, and Chris Mann 3 times. Chris Mann knows me. I met him backstage twice and saw his personal performance once. I followed him on Twitter and he said he followed me at his personal performance. I think he did very well. He's from Wichita, Kansas. He's 4 years older than me.

That's very cool, Christina! Do you talk to him often? I've got one of them added as a friend on Facebook, but I've not met any of them in person.
