That voice which calls to me, and speaks my name.
If you are not familiar with those lyric, then I suggest you to listen to the song. The original one. The one that was sung by Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford.
Not the current Broadway cast recordings or the 2004 film version of it.
Let me guess, still confused with what I am talking about?
And yes, THEY ARE AND FOREVER WILL BE THE BEST PHANTOM AND CHRISTINE!
a. They are the original casts
b. Andrew Lloyd Webber specifically wrote the music for both of them (even though this was more to Sarah)
c. They have the best chemistry in terms of performances
d. And yes, they are the original (again!)
Yes everybody is entitled to their own opinion but a lot of Phantom fans are so judgmental; thinking that Crawford’s voice was too creepy for the role. I mean, hello? Isn’t Phantom supposedly to be dark and scary? What do you expect? Justin Timberlake’s voice or Adam Levine?
And don’t start with the whole “Sarah’s voice is too mature and strong for a girl like Christine” discussion. Andrew himself wrote the part for her and yes, even if Christine is only a teenager, a soprano can have mature voice regardless of age. Whether she is a lyric soprano or coloratura soprano, she is still a soprano.
Okay, this post seems kinda weird for you but yeah, just trying to share what I love. I love The Phantom of the Opera. I love Broadway musicals. I love theater and performing arts.
One of my favorite song.
Yours Truly 🙂
