The Phantom of the Opera unmasked

DUBAI, April 18, 2019

Award-winning performer Jonathan Roxmouth will play the lead role of ‘The Phantom’ in the Middle East debut of the world’s most popular musical, The Phantom of the Opera, taking place in Dubai this October.

Roxmouth is currently appearing in the global tour of The Phantom of the Opera in Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, and more. Roxmouth, who is also one of the youngest people to ever portray the role of ‘The Phantom’, is looking forward to reprising the role that holds a deep connection with his grandfather, who taught him how to conduct to the cassette of the original London Cast Album.

Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius, known as the Phantom, who haunts the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent and beauty of a young soprano, Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.
