The Calgary Chapter
The Phantom of the Opera has opened in the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in August 2017 to a wide demand. The performance consists of everything its signature production is renowned for, including its iconic costumes, big musical numbers, incredible performances and iconic set design. The Calgary production has improved upon some of these elements as well and introduced some more innovations. For example, the signature Chandelier is tweaked— instead of sliding to the stage, it falls with sparks and fireworks directly below, stopping short of a few feet above the first rows of the audience. The Chandelier itself has been modified as well since it includes many more of mirrors and is much larger than the original one.
Who’s Behind the Mask?
Derrick Davis plays the Phantom in this production, which is a milestone in itself since Davis is the first actor from a Latin/African descent to play the iconic character. Davis brings the conflicting personality and self-doubt of being raised in a marginalized community to his representation of this conflicted character. He says “I think as an actor, it just informs a little bit of the character of the Phantom. It gives (the Phantom) another layer, you know? So it makes it a little bit similar.”
This production is receiving rave reviews, and Davis is quickly being accepted as an exemplary Phantom. The rest of the cast is being acknowledged for maintaining the grandeur of the show. Phantom of the Opera Calgary tickets are on sale now.
