I've been waiting for this! Finally my turn to watch the Phantom of the Opera in Manila!
We intentionally chose October 14, 2012 3pm, the last day of performance with the main cast. I really wanted to see Clair Lyon! Ainzley is just so infectious, haha! Im a fan
Of course digital Cameras weren't allowed inside the theater so these are all I got.
The production is really grand, Set changes happen smoothly and so fast, the play of lights is very great. Their voices, its so good, it almost feels recorded! And I love the way the play it with sound where Phantom's voice echos in different directions like its on 3D.
These photos are also available in the Programme.
And since my lovely baby Ainzley has her connections, we decided to go and meet the cast at the stage door, we were there really early with other fans who really wanted to see the cast for the last time.

And then she came:
|So Chic and Pretty!|
None other than Clair Lyon! My God this lady is a paragon of youth and beauty. She's so kind and easy-going. To those who are not fully aware of who she is, Clair plays as Christine Daaé in the Phantom of the Opera World Tour, She also played the same role for the sequel "Love Never Dies". And what we watched was her last show. That kiss on the hand by Jonathan Roxmouth, The Phantom, was so tearfully epic!

I swear, I was all stiff when he came out like a dashing prince, Can't believe he's the same man in the mask whose brains are almost out (Prosthesis). Everyone was so hyped giving gifts, having him sign, hugging and kissing him and when it was my turn. I simply went stiff and smiled! Why??? Haha. He went: (In a lovely British accent) Hi, hello, thank you and you are? Then I just went silent. Stunned!
