Dear friends! Congratulation to all of you who celebrate Christmas today! We wish you all the joy and cheering!

Old good tradition of our site is on Christmas to immerse oneself in the atmosphere of Beauty and the Beast fairytale. Especially we are pleased to update our site shortly before a new movie based on Disney animated film to be released. Today we suggest you to read an essay. Why it is widely accepted that the Phantom of the Opera is based on the story about Beauty who felt in love with the Beast? We try to answer this question in this essay.

After long absence of any news, now we've got information about French version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's the Phantom of the Opera. This Friday Stage Entertainment France and Mogador Theatre administration officially announced about project closing. The Phantom of the Opera will be replaced by Grease.

Magnitude of accident when props and costumes were damaged is still unknown, so we Phantom fans have a hope that in year or two we will hear the musical in French. We hope sincerely it will be true.

Dear friends! Today is not JUST a birthday of the most famous stage version of the Phantom of the Opera. Today is its milestone birthday! Magnifical date, 30 years! We believe this triumphant march is continuing, lots of anniversaries and records are in the future. And today let's remember how it all started.

This is about The first year backstage Her Majesty's Theatre London 1986-1987 by Marcus Tylor. He was full-time photographer of Her Majesty Theatre and personal assistant of Steve Barton when the Phantom of the Opera was presented to the audience. In his book Taylor published rare backstage pictures during the first year of production. We updated information and added Laruno's review of the new edition of this book.

Also we continue to publish information about Russian stage version. Now we completed the page with video. Here you can watch promotional clips, footage, interviews and mass media reports. Also there are videos made by artists backstage.

As a bolt from the blue, sad news came from Paris. In less than three weeks the Phantom of the Opera — the first time in France! — is scheduled. The fire started in basement, so props and costumes (some of them had been taken from Moscow production after its closing in April) were damaged. One of firemen was slightly injured, no more injuries.

Damage is to be judged. But it is clear that repair works will take a long period. French office of Stage Entertainment said it in short that the premier night was postponed until next year, no dates specified.

08/15/2016
Today we continue to post materials about Russian stage version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera. After the closing night the official site of the show was also closed. So now it is our responsibility to collect and save all materials more or less related to Russian Phantom of the Opera. So in future still many updates are awaiting for you.

Today we renovated and fully updated the special page about Russian cast included all updates from the second season. Also we suggest you to read about the famous Broadway producer and director Harold Prince's visit to Moscow on the special page. And more, review page is also updated with the most interesting comments about the second season.

Not by the Phantom alone... in other word, today we suggest you to think of other works by Gaston Leroux. Two summer months are gone, August has come, but many more sunny days await us, and we can spend them with a book written by our favorite writer. Leroux wrote a lot of books in different genres, like crime stories, fantasies, spy novels, reports, articles and theatre plays... Today we revised full list of his works and added books translated into Russian. So here we are — full bibliography.

But wait a minute! How about well-known Wax Museum? And The real Opera Ghost? I'm sure they were here! Answers to these question you will find on the special page with reader comments. You will find some interesting facts you never knew.
