2002 - Phantom and the Opera

21.06.2002 Civic Theatre / Dublin

Sold out and I managed to reserve a seat in the first row.

To put this straight: This wasn’t the Phantom of the Opera but a performance of the most established songs from the most successful musicals.

The six people ensemble consisted of three musicians and three vocalists and all off them were already experienced in musical performance.

Some of the performing artists were once cast in productions like “Cats” or “The Phantom of the Opera”.

Although it is pretty obvious that the misleading title of the show leads to massive ticket sales one has to admit that the performance is worth every penny.

The grateful audience obviously doesn’t mind the ticket price of € 25,-. I went there with a group and only paid € 15,- 
