The Phantom of the Opera is fog-machine technology’s greatest achievement. It has been running on Broadway for 30 years and shows no signs of stopping. This national touring production boasts “newly reinvented staging and stunning scenic design,” according to advance word. Christine will be played by Eva Tavares, a performer from Vancouver, BC, who has studied opera seriously. The phantom will be played by Quentin Oliver Lee, who was in the national tour of Porgy and Bess (which is also currently being produced by the Seattle Opera).
