Where was the original Phantom of the Opera filmed?
Does Phantom of the Opera travel to other cities?
Phantom of the Opera the stage play is available at any city and state with its own unique cast. Sometimes a Broadway's Phantom of the Opera will travel to state to state, to give an unique performance. It is the same with London's Phantom of the Opera, they can travel to Regions of the UK to varieties of cities, towns.
Why do they call him the phantom in the phantom of the opera?
The story was originally a novel by a Frenchman, Gaston Leroux, who published "Le Fantome de l'Opera" in 1911. In English we'd say "The Opera Ghost" or "The Ghost of the Opera", but while the notes from the Phantom in the translation are signed "O.G.", he's still largely referred to as "the Phantom", and the rather more romantic/gothic "The Phantom of the Opera" was used as the title when the book was first translated into English. "The Ghost of the Opera" (let alone "The Opera Ghost") just doesn't have the same ring to it, and I suppose English readers who had heard of "Le Fantome de l'Opera" may not have recognized the book had "fantome" been translated as "ghost" rather than "phantom". But in French it's the same thing. Ever since then, he's been referred to as "the Phantom", although a lot of versions will also refer to the "ghost" that apparently haunts the opera, especially if the scene has backstage workers talking. I guess they use the simpler "ghost" rather than "phantom" because they're usually depicted as being rather lower-class. The translation of the novel uses both "Phantom" and "Ghost", but in the original French they just use the one word. The Andrew Lloyd Webber musical doesn't actually give him a name, preferring to maintain an additional layer of mystique by simply using "Phantom" throughout; but in versions where he *is* named, he's "Erik" after the novel (in which his last name is never given). Only a very few people ever know his actual name, though. I suppose the short version is that as most of the characters only know of him as this ghost that haunts the opera, that's how they refer to him, with "phantom" usually being used rather than "ghost" as it's closer to the word used in the original French.

In the Italian opera what was the name of the character played by Tito Gobbi?
What is the theme for the phantom of the opera?
While themes are generally left up to each individual to decide, I think the theme of The Phantom of the Opera is that love is timeless, and can never be conquered. Once again, this is just my personal opinion, and may differ from others. i am a different user and i think alot of the same things but if you mean theme as in music it is probaly the 5 halfstep notes going down and then the melody of the song "Phantom of the Opera" if you mean theme as in moral it is probaly love never dies or like the other user said, love is timeless

How did the phantom tollbooth characters get developed?
The Phantom Tollbooth is a children's adventure novel and a modern fairy tale published in 1961, written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer. Critics have compared it to Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland in terms of classic appeal and importance. Norton Juster was in an interview some time ago, he was inspired by reading encyclopedia as a child. Then in 1960 to 1961, he had written a boy name Milo, his watchdog Tuck who is beckoned by a Phantom Tollbooth to come drive through with his toy car. Animation director Chuck Jones adapted the book into The Phantom Tollbooth, a feature live-action/animated film of the same name, in 1971. In 1995, Juster adapted Tollbooth into a libretto for an opera.
Why does the Phantom give Christine Raoul's ring in Phantom of the Opera?
I think he wanted to erase any "other rings" that would symbolize her engagement to someone else, by making that same ring a symbol of HIS and her marriage. And then Christine finally made it completely theirs by giving it back to him (the Phantom), likely as a token of her love even though she chose to live with Raoul.
How is the phantom and victor Hugo linked to the Paris opera house?
The Hunchback from Notre Dame is written by Victor Hugo. It was printed in 1831. Quasimode is love with Esmeralda the Gypsy. She is kind to him, by offering him a drink when he was in the stock a form public punishment. The setting is the same in Paris but in 1482 awhile the Phantom is 1880s'. They are similar Quasimode is physically deformed with a hunchback, he mentally not a genius like Erik in the Phantom of the Opera. He is not really in love with Esmeralda, he is grateful toward her and is too mentally handicap to be physically in love with her. He wants is a friend. He saves her life from the cruel priest who accuses her of being a witch and a murderess. Lon Chaney portrayed both the Hunchback and the Phantom. The Hunchback set was used for the Phantom of the Opera two years later, making Lon Chaney a superstar and a makeup artist legend The Man With the Thousand Faces. Gaston Leroux studied Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Notre Dame that he was inspired by the Beauty, Ugly and the Shunned. He created the Phantom of the Opera in 1909.

Was the band Lifehouse named after The Who rock opera of the same name?
How does Andrew Lloyd's version of the Phantom of the Opera end?
The Phantom ends up trying to make Christine commit to a marriage with him, by threatning to kill Raoul if she won't do so just like in the novel - but in the ALW stage version, The Phantom has trapped Raoul in a hangman's noose and in the film version he ties Raoul to the gate of his lair and puts a lassoo around his neck in means to stranggle Raoul if Christine refuses to marry him (the Phantom.) There's a few moments of huge drama between the trio and eventually Christine chooses the Phantom. She puts on the engagement ring and gives the Phantom two kisses on the lips. Her love, sacrifice and commitment has the Phantom's human side win and he learns the true meaning of love; and thus because he loves Christine, he lets Raoul and Christine go. The Phantom tells Christine the three words ('I love you'), she gives him back the engagement ring and she and Raoul leave. In the stage version, the Phantom weeps into her wedding veil, chanting her name or alternatively 'I love you' and then either dies or disappears. In the film version it's the same except the wedding veil moment has been changed into him breaking a few mirrors in anguish.
Asked in Christmas, Drama Movies, Musical Movies
Is white Christmas a musical?
The simple answer is yes. White Christmas was probably inspired by the song of the same name from the musical Holiday Inn. They are similar and even said to share the same inn. The movies also shared the same lead actor singing that same song, Bing Crosby. However, it probably isn't a musical in the way that Phantom of the Opera or Oklahoma! is. I have never heard of it being adapted for the stage.
