                                                          The Diamond Bar High School Performing Arts                                                                  Department is proud to present the years spring musical,                                                          "The Phantom of the Opera." We are excited to be                                                                    among one of the first high schools in the area                                                                          to produce this spectacular show.

                                                           "The Phantom of the Opera" tells the story of a                                                                  masked figure that lurks beneath the catacombs of the                                                              Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all                                                            who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent                                                            young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to                                                                      creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary

                                                     talent. With all its special effects and hauntingly

                                                     beautiful music, The Phantom of the Opera is, at its

                                                     heart, a story of redemption. The naïve and vulnerable                                                              Christine is a powerful character foil to the all-seeing, domineering Phantom. And while The Phantom takes advantage of a girl still grieving the loss of her father, his actions speak to our human need to belong to someone in a loving relationship. Employing devious and fiendish methods to get his way, The Phantom excuses himself by saying that no one has shown compassion to him. Christine correctly recognizes that the Phantom’s distortion is not because of his disfigured face but rather because of his disfigured soul. When pressed to make a decision to save herself or save her fiancée, Raoul, Christine chooses to show The Phantom unconditional love through her kiss. With the transformation of The Phantom’s soul, The Phantom of the Opera becomes a beautiful, haunting tale of obsession, unrequited love and redemption.

        Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical version of The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most popular, most seen musicals ever and is now the longest-running musical in Broadway history. It is estimated that The Phantom of the Opera has been seen by more than 100 million people worldwide having been played in no fewer than 14 languages. The show has won over 50 major theatre awards.
