Venture into the "haunted" corridors of the Paris Opera House as the University Orchestra brings one of the most iconic musicals to the concert hall for their final performance of the year. Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a young opera star and the mysterious masked figure who becomes obsessed with her. The longest-running show on Broadway, the musical is presented here by full orchestra and narration.

This program has something for everyone, including orchestral masterworks, opera and musical theatre.
