My Misunderstood Phantom of the Opera

Last week we celebrated out wedding anniversary, and my amazing husband to me to see The Phantom of the Opera at the Venitian in Las Vegas. It was an awesome show and it renewed my love for the Phantom. I mean, it's the PHANTOM! What's not to love? Sure, half his face is disfigured, but he is hunky enough that you only notice his good side, right?

So, I am officially declaring this Phantom of the Opera Week. Women everywhere, if you have a copy of the DVD (Gerrard Butler one is the best, but any version will do) pop that baby in the player this week and relive those magical moments and surrender to the music of the night with me!

Suggested Viewing

The Phantom of the Opera

Musical Drama based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical phenomenon. The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents.

I love that version. Gerard doesn't have the flawless voice, but OMG, he's the most compelling and sexiest version. I feel for him.
Happy anniversary!

I think I'll watch my copy tonight.

We love Phantom at our house. I took my two middle boys who were in band at the time to see it one evening at the Fox Theater in Atlanta and it was so awesome! After years of hearing the soundtrack and watching the movie-even places some pieces in band, they got to see the real thing!

That is definitely my favorite show! I've seen it on the stage, but I love the movie (Gerard's version) the best. I swear I cry every time I see it...and I've seen it plenty of times!

My dream is to see it on the stage someday! I love the movie, though!
