The Music of the Night

The Phantom is in MANILA!

The Phantom of the Opera is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, based on the French novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux. Yup, and it is also my man's Favorite musical ever-since he was in High School. For 21 years, he has been listening to the songs of The Phantom of the Opera everyday. He's the only person that I know of, who really is almost a die-hard fan of the Phantom. Hihi. And so, ever since we dated, I started listening to the beautiful songs of this musical. Thanks to him, I started appreciating the Opera. Back when I was younger, when I hear the main theme of The Phantom of the Opera, it makes me scared and it makes me feel like there's a monster somewhere. Yikes! I simply didn't like the opening of the Phantom of the Opera. Up to this day even, it sends chills up to my spine. For 1 year and 4 months now, I have been listening most often with the songs of this musical. Oh, what beauty the Opera has to offer. My favorites are: "Masquerade", "The music of the night", "Think of me", "Wishing you were somehow here again", and of course, "All I ask of you." 
When J saw that The Phantom will be showing in Manila, we got excited. 
Well, actually, he was MORE excited. Hihi
Our show was on the 31st of August, 2012. It was on a Friday night.
It was held at CCP (Cultural Center of the Philippines) at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo main theater.
The show was simply spectacular! 
Our tickets Row C, Orchestra Side. It was the ultimate view to see the emotions.

After the show, he bought me this. :)

He also bought me a pretty neat glow-in-the-dark shirt of the Phantom of The Opera which I will upload once we get to wear our "couple shirt." Hihi. So, ladies and gentlemen, watch out for it!

Once after you've arrived home, you'll truly have that LSS (Last Song Syndrome) of ALL the songs of Andrew Lloyd Weber's The Phantom of the Opera. The music of the night was simply splendid!

Truly madly deeply,
