Composer/lyricist Maury Yeston (Nine) actually began work on this musical version of Gaston Leroux's novel The Phantom Of The Opera before it attracted the attention of Andrew Lloyd Webber (and before it fell out of copyright). But Lloyd Webber got to the stage first and had a spectacular success with his

I know how wonderful this play is because I have seen it first hand my high school put the production on and I am beyond obsessed and in love with the story, and of course the music. It was an amazing experiance. I LOVE IT!!!!!

I might get flamed to a crisp for saying this, but I like this Phantom much more than Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera. I feel it shows much more depth and thought...also, I'm a big fan of Maury Yeston!

When I saw it, I thought it was really good because I consider myself an expert on the subject of The Phantom of the Opera. When Josph got killed, I almost laughed out loud. What is with the song ''Who Could Ever Have Dreamed Up You''? That song scares me. If you ever get a chance to see it, do because it is a good show.

I read the two other reviews for this, and I also consider myself some-what a expert on Le Fantom de l'Opera (The Phantom of the Opera). I found out about this CD through a friend who is performing 'Home' for a recital. I fell in love with the song and memorized it, and later sung it in a Talent Show. Now I'm going to sing it in another Talent Show- but I didn't have the tape for the song, so ordered the CD so I could teach it to a friend who is singing it with me. Well, let me say this: I didn't think I'd like it, becuase of the major diffrence between it and any other version I've seen. But I heard it and I can't stop listening to it. It's ethier on my stero or in my head, and it's far, FAR (I can't say 'far' enough) better then Mr. Webbers. And the music WELL makes up for any diffrences! Favorite songs of mine are You Are Music, My Mother Bore Me, Home and You Are My Own.
