What is phantom of the opera scenery criticism?

The stage version both London and Broadway both received a Olivier and Tony Award for Best sets and scenery in 1986 and 1988.

The movie Phantom of the Opera 2004 was viewed as over visualized and used to distract the audience that their singers cannot act and sing accordingly to art and music critics. Some of the scenes especially the entering the Phantom's Lair, with hands coming out of the wall to hold torches seemed more for Halloween or something out of Dracula than Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. Some critics criticized the cobwebs on every candelabra as being more Halloween than realistic. Some critics viewed the scenes all of them as immaculately gaudy.

The Ball scene was also viewed from art and music critics as being overly black and white costumes with no colour in the gowns at all. Awhile the stage version the gowns are displayed in bright beautiful colours.

Why didn't Michael Crawford perform at the 25th anniversary celebration of phantom of the opera at the Royal Albert hall?

Could be a few reasons. First of all Michael is notorious for rehearsing everything to death! I think he must rehearse brushing his teeth! Since he was on stage every day in Wizard of Oz this didn't allow him to rehearse with the rest of the Phantom cast.

Secondly, he could only attend the Sun. performance for the same reason. But mostly I think it was because he was EXTREMELY emotional that night and having to literally sprint from the performance at the Palladium to do the show at RAH, I'm sure he felt like he wouldn't be "up" to giving his best for the audience. And it's tough to get him to do anything if he feels he can't give 100% or more!

He and Sir Lloyd Webber had agreed ahead of time that he would appear at the last "finale" but not perform. If you notice on the video Sierra Bogess "escorts" him off stage before the other Phantoms begin singing. That was obviously pre-arranged.
