Although “The lavish screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera (2005) only deepened the damage” of the dislike of musicals made into film “with non-stars in the leads and an unimaginative production,”(Musical),which version, the live performance or the film, makes the story more attractive? To answer these questions, permit this essay to analyze two methods of storytelling: 2011 live performance Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall and the 2005 film, and decide if music and story lovers everywhere have too “turned from true beauty”. Point of view, “a position or perspective from which something is considered or evaluated” (Webster), is a phrase that is usually associated with story telling; particularly books. But point of view can also affect a film or play as well. “Lighting also is used to create the illusion of depth and dimension, and to illuminate different contours and textures.”(oscar) The stage performance and film of Phantom both use a 3rd person point of view.
The Phantom shows his jealousy throughout the musical, and at one point he gives Christine a frightful warning about her closeness to Raoul. Hugh Panaro as The Phantom was interesting. He has a lovely tenor voice, and acts as the Phantom well. There were parts where I thought he went a little bit overboard in acting out in the final scene. I understand that an opera has dramatically embellished gestures, but the final act seemed a bit disingenuous.
These repeated ideas are archetypes. The basic legend of The Phantom takes place in 19th century Paris, and is that of a young and talented, but untrained singer named Christine. Erik, the Phantom, is a disfigured genius of many fields, including music, architecture, magic, and science. His fatal flaw stems from his strong dislike and mistrust of the rest of the human race, which has been very unkind to him throughout his life. He encounters Christine in the Paris Opera House, becomes infatuated with her, and initially claims to be her otherworldly musical tutor.

The characters do not accept the idea of the "Opera Ghost" as a real ghost and many exhibit a disbelief, as they would in rea... ... middle of paper ... ...re into a masterpiece that would be famous for almost one hundred years after its publication date. He also creates a false history of the tale, claiming it can found in any French records, if one only takes the time to look. Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera meets all of the requirements of fantastic literature. Through meeting these requirements of the Fantastic, this work also pulls itself out of the category of Magical Realism. Written in such an eerie tone, and with the horror found in its pages, it is no wonder that The Phantom of the Opera is included as horror or mystery besides its standing as a classical novel.
