The Phantom of the Opera is here

Cirencester Parish Church will be the setting for Hollywood royalty on Saturday, March 24 when thePhantomof the Opera comes town... as youve never seen him before. So dust off your diamonds, opera cloaks and tails and be prepared to jump out of your skins.

Anthony Hammond, Concert Organist and Director of Music at the Parish Church, will be performing an improvised soundtrack to the iconic 1929 silent movie version of the story. Witness a cast of thousands... Lon Chaneys legendary makeup and unmasking as ThePhantom... When combined with the musical versatility displayed by Hammond you'll find yourself swept away into a world of glamour with the sparkling lights of Paris set amongst the romance of 1920s Hollywood... And hauled through emotions from elation to terror. Perfect for everyone from organ buffs and movie fans through to families and the just plain curious.

Recently described asone of the most exciting and absorbing performances I've ever been toHammond's improvisations are not to be missed!

So... Add it to your diary. Saturday, March 24 2012 at 7.30pm. Tickets cost 10 and are available on the door or from The Corner Stone (tel: 01285 644599), in advance.
