VCH ORGAN SERIES: PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
26 Oct 2017, 7:30 PM - 11:59 PM
Dorothy Papadakos, organ
Phantom of the Opera. The title itself no doubt evokes scenes of crashing chandelier, haunting romance and sweet sorrow in your mind. But did you know, the musical actually succeeds a 1925 silent horror film of the same title which grandly lived up to its genre when audiences were said to have screamed or fainted upon revelation of the Phantom’s appearance? A renowned international organist popular for her sold-out silent film programmes, Dorothy Papadakos brings the film’s raw terror to justice on the magnificent organ with an imaginatively improvised score that is sure to frighten even the Concert Hall’s resident Phantom.
