I recently enjoyed this Blu-ray with a house full of girlfriends. Our evening included delicious food, a bottle of red wine and some nice conversation.
Most of us already being fans of the Opera, it’s no surprise it was a great night. The story and passion of The Phantom of the Opera never gets old. Seeing my twelve year old daughter fall in-love with the performance was definitely a highlight for me. It takes more than a good story to be passed down through generations, and clearly The Phantom of the Opera has what it takes.
