The final performances of Lake Elsinore High School's production of “Phantom of the Opera” are tonight and tomorrow, March 14 and 15, at 7 p.m. Canyon Lake teen Alex Landau will play the Phantom on Saturday night. Another Canyon Laker, Kelsey Zimmerman, plays the role of the princess in the “Hannibal” number and is also a dancer in many scenes
The story takes place at the Paris Opera House in the late 1800s to early 1900s, where far beneath the majesty and splendor of the stage, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical scars and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protegée, Christine, is so strong that even her heart can’ t resist. However, as Christine’s star rises, a handsome suitor from her past enters the picture and the Phantom grows mad, terrorizing the opera house company with his murderous ways. Still, Christine finds herself drawn to the “Angel of Music.”
This musical has won the Olivier Award and a Tony Award for Best Musical. Elsinore High School is lucky to have many talented actors and gifted singers to be able to perform this masterpiece. Canyon Lakers are invited to see this musical and support their local high school performers.
Elsinore High School is located at 21800 Canyon Dr. in Wildomar.
