The Phantom of the Opera

Screening followed by live performance & conversation with musical theater star Ali Ewoldt, moderated by Broadway producer Dori Berinstein

The Phantom may have left Broadway after 35 years, but you can experience the power of this smash-hit musical all over again at the Jacob Burns Film Center!

From his hideout beneath a 19th century Paris opera house, the brooding Phantom (Gerard Butler) schemes to get closer to vocalist Christine Daaé (Emmy Rossum). The Phantom, wearing a mask to hide a congenital disfigurement, strong-arms management into giving the budding starlet key roles, but Christine instead falls for arts benefactor Raoul (Patrick Wilson). Terrified at the notion of her absence, the Phantom enacts a plan to keep Christine by his side, while Raoul tries to foil the scheme.
