The epic Broadway show The Phantom of the Opera has returned to Cincinnati. You can see the show at the Aronoff Center thanks to Broadway in Cincinnati. I have seen The Phantom of the Opera several times, and each time I’m completely captivated and entranced. It is one of my all time favorite Broadway shows. I have yet to stop humming and singing the songs as I sit here three days later. Ella says I am just rubbing it in since she did not get to go this year.
This production of the Phantom of the Opera brings with it a completely new look and a few changes from the original production. I will not list all of the changes and describe the sets to you, because you need to see it for yourself. We really enjoyed the new production, from the costumes to the sets. The special effects in the show were magical. The performances by everyone were top notch. I particularly enjoyed the scenes between the Phantom and Christine because you could feel the passion and pain as they sang. The Phantom of the Opera is just a breathtaking show all around, and it is only in town until November 27th 2016, so get your tickets now! Read all about the show and how to get tickets below.

Cameron Mackintosh said, “I’m delighted that my new production of PHANTOM has proved to be as spectacular a success as the brilliant original which is still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 28 phenomenal years. This exciting new staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes with a terrific new cast is thrilling audiences and critics alike and gaining a whole new generation of fans eager to see this version again and again.
