The Phantom of the Opera goes digital!
For the first time in almost 22 years, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA this week closed for four performances to install a new digital sound system. Due to the continuing success of the show, it has not been possible to make any changes to the production without causing major disruption to advance bookings. It was decided before the new booking period went on sale, to invest around £400,000 in the show by keeping four performances off sale and installing this state of the art new system.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “The most recent production’s of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA around the world from Vegas to China have the most fantastic sound systems and it is wonderful that the flagship London production will now have the newest and best of them all to get the best out of our huge cast and the largest orchestra in the West End.
Designed by Mick Potter, the digital system will double the amount of microphones used in the show and the Phantom himself will now use 3 microphones. The new surround sound system will consist of over 10 kilometres of cable, 120 speakers placed throughout the auditorium and a digital sound desk that will make the largest orchestra in the West End and 40 strong cast sound more powerful than ever before.”
