Notes

This landmark of British Musicals has been reproduced in it's original full symphonic conception which is often sadly lost on stage due to restrictive orchestra size. In this recording the 60 piece orchestrations with added Digital Dolby Surround depth offer the listener a definitive recording of this classic work.

This recording features a fascinating "battle" of the Phantoms between Dave Willets (Jesus Christ) and Ethan Freeman (Pilate) both of whom played the Phantom on the West End Stage and elsewhere.

A stunning performance by Issy van Randwyck as Mary shows the reason she was chosen as the only non-mainstream pop singer to appear on the recent platinum recording "The Glory of Gershwin"( other singers included Meat Loaf, Cher, Enya etc) This is surely an early preview of a superstar in the making.
