Inspired by Gason Leroux’s 1910 novel, of the same name, Atlantic Ballet Theatre of Canada’s PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a captivating story which evokes timeless themes and images of outcasts, love, and the power of obsession. 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.
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA features lush costumes created by Paul Daigle and an intriguing set design by Brian Perchaluk. Pierre Lavoie’s ethereal mix of light and shadows perfectly captures the eerie world where a love triangle ensnares, Erik, the beautiful ingénue whom he loves, and the dashing young viscount who wins her heart.
