In Celebration of 25 Years
A disfigured musical genius, hidden away in the Paris Opera House, terrorizes the opera company for the unwitting benefit of a young protégée whom he trains and loves.
When I sing, I close my eyes. If I see a feather, everything is fine. Without this image in my mind, the sound is not `truthful` enough and I must begin again. I have to. I first had this feeling, this instinct, with `The Phantom of the Opera`, and since then have always listened to it.
In the past, I always used to be looking for answers. Today, I know there are only questions. So I just live.
Composer (and then soon to be husband), Andrew Lloyd Webber, originally wrote the famous Phantom Of The Opera song "The Music Of The Night" for Sarah. It was originally titled "Married Man" with lyrics by British director Trevor Nunn, and sung at Lloyd Webber's yearly festival in the early 80s. At the time of writing and performing it, Lloyd Webber was still married to his first wife... what a hint!
Is still friends with her former "The Phantom of the Opera" stage co-star, Michael Crawford.
