Description

This one or two-day lesson (52 pages) focuses on the Tony award winning musical The Phantom of the Opera. Considered one of the best and most successful musicals in theater history, the story tells of a man shunned by society for his horrible facial deformity, he takes a promising young soprano, Christine, under his wing and grooms her for operatic fame, all the while falling deeply in love with her. As Christine grows ever more successful, and a handsome young man from her past begins to successfully court her, the Phantom descends into a jealous rage and terrorizes the opera company with increasingly dangerous threats. Students have an opportunity to study its journey to Broadway, plot, songs, composers, plot, trivia, etc.

The lesson can stand alone or be combined with one of my Famous Artist Biographies Hugh Jackman for example) or other musical lessons (Hamilton or Wicked)
