The Phantom of the Opera's 25th Anniversary Special Will Stream on YouTube FOR FREE

I have loved musicals ever since I was a kid. I wasn't your typical Disney lover. When I was 3, my favorite movie was 'Sound of Music' - a movie so long, it came in the form of two VHS tapes - and when my aunt made it to West End, I became absolutely obsessed with the musicals she was in. My Discman was always playing some sort of musical soundtrack. And so, on my 10th birthday, my dad took me to London to experience real live musicals. 'The Phantom of the Opera' was one of them.

To this day, 'The Phantom of the Opera' remains to be one of my favorite musicals. I love the costumes, the powerful songs, and the grandeur of the production overall. I especially love that my loyalty for the characters always changes each time I watch it, depending on who is cast as The Phantom and who is cast as Raoul. :p

If you haven't seen 'The Phantom of the Opera' on stage yet, you are definitely missing out. Fortunately, as part of 'The Shows Must Go On' series, the 25th anniversary production of 'The Phantom of the Opera' filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011 will be streamed on YouTube during the quarantine COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE.

Featuring Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom, Sierra Boggess as Christine, and Hadley Fraser as Raoul; 'The Phantom of the Opera' will be available for 48 hours starting on Saturday at 3AM. Unless you're an insomniac like me, you'll probably want to watch it at a later time on Saturday, though. :p

Other productions that have been streamed as part of the series include 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat' and 'Jesus Christ Superstar'.
