The Phantom of the Opera (ENO)
  • London Fringe

The World Premiere of Roy Budd's masterpiece score to the 1925 classic silent film.

For the very first time, the iconic silent film will be shown with the score by legendary musician and film composer Roy Budd. This is a not to be missed one-off event performed by Docklands Sinfonia, conducted by Spencer Down.

As a child prodigy performer, Budd debuted at the Coliseum in 1953 at 6 years of age. 64 years later, it is only fitting that the Coliseum will again play host to Budd in what is arguably his greatest achievement - a grand soundtrack for a full orchestra with several themes and leitmotifs that pay tribute to the great composers of the concert hall and screen, while at the same time being unmistakably the work of its inspired creator.

Budd tragically and unexpectedly passed away in 1993 at 46 years old, five weeks shy of the original premiere which never eventuated due to his passing. 24 years later we are very proud to stage the Premiere of his masterpiece work.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
