EAST MARLBOROUGH — For more than twenty-five years, The Phantom of the Opera has captivated audiences in London and on Broadway. Now you can see this mesmerizing production on the Unionville High School stage as our talented young actors bring this poignant love story to life, March 15-17.
The setting is the dazzling Paris Opera House. But all is not well. Lurking in the bowels of the Opera House is a malign and disfigured “Phantom” who obtrudes himself into the life of the new owners, the cast and, especially, the lovely young soprano Christine. Watching her with ambition, obsession, and devotion, the Phantom machinates to have Christine replace the diva, Carlotta. Christine performs to acclaim, and is recognized by her childhood friend, Raoul, who falls in love with her. Christine reciprocates his love, to the disgust and despair of the Phantom who vows to make her pay for her betrayal.
