The deCoste Performing Arts Centre will be presenting ‘Phantom of the Opera-the Ballet’ as part of their third annual spring gala on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
Inspired by Gason Leroux’s 1910 novel of the same name, Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada’s Phantom of the Opera is a story which evokes timeless themes and images of outcasts, love, and the power of obsession.
The story has continued to excite the imaginations of readers, reaching across different cultures and eras, according to a press release from the deCoste. An exile, rejected by the only world he knows, Erik, the Phantom, hides a romantic heart and a sensitive soul. But driven by a hopeless love, he becomes a menacing spectre, inhabiting a sinister domain of his own creation.
With original choreography by Igor Dobrovolskiy set to the music of Francis Poulenc, Phantom of the Opera features costumes created by Paul Daigle and an intriguing set design by Brian Perchaluk.
The evening also features an opening reception beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale at the deCoste box office and online at www.decostecentre.ca.
