Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular Hits 5 Year Mark

Phantom - The Las Vegas Spectacular has passed the five year mark of performances at the Venetian. The production has presented more than 2200 shows here. There is a special promotion right now. If you haven’t seen this production, now’s the time as a special promotion is in place until September 4. If you have seen it, let me remind you of how great it is and suggest you see it again. It’s that good.  It is proof that “Broadway” can make it in Las Vegas.

They call it PHANTOM THE LAS VEGAS SPECTACULAR. It is. Arrive early to allow time to appreciate the  90,000 square foot Phantom Theatre which was custom built to resemble the famed Opera Garnier in Paris and features a one ton chandelier that produces the most spectacular crash in Phantom history.  The pyrotechnics are impressive, the sets are amazing, the special effects are awesome, the staging is a tour de force and the music is hauntingly beautiful.  It includes The Music Of The Night, Think Of Me, and All I Ask Of You. The Music of The Night alone is worth the price of admission!

Phantom tells the story of the hideously deformed phantom who lives beneath the stage of the Paris Opera House and his love for the beautiful Christine who loves another.

While there is a bit of comic relief, I would call the 95 minute show intense, but brilliant. It is a tragedy. There are times when I don’t understand every word they are singing, but it doesn’t matter.  The talent shines.  I can’t say enough to praise Anthony Crivello, the Phantom.  With  his partially covered face, he uses his body, right down to his fingertips to convey his feelings.  The characters work from one side of the stage to the other, as well as the aisles, giving the audience members a closer look.

To date, this production has executed more than 500,000 special effects.  11,000 romantic kisses have been shared on stage and the $5 million chandelier has “crashed” a distance equal to five times the height of Mt. Everest. More than 150 cast and crew members work together each night to put on a dazzling experience for the audience. Although this production is streamlined, it features every song from the original production
