The Sedona International Film Festival celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the biggest and most celebrated musical of all times, The Phantom of the Opera, by bringing it and its sequel - Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies - to the big screen in high definition. Both lavish musicals will run July 24-27 at the festival's Mary D. Fisher Theatre. Showtimes will be 4 and 7 p.m.

"It is like having fifth row orchestra seats to the best theatrical productions from around the world," said festival director Patrick Schweiss. "Experience these grand, phenomenal stage productions from both London and Melbourne from the best seats in the house - right here in Sedona!"



THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, Cameron Mackintosh produced a unique, spectacular staging of the musical on a scale which had never been seen before. Inspired by the original staging by Hal Prince and Gillian Lynne, this special event features over 200 cast members, orchestra musicians and luminaries involved with "The Phantom of the Opera" over the past 25 years.

With a fully-staged, lavish production, set in the sumptuous Victorian splendor of the Royal Albert Hall in London, the event has captivated cinema audiences around the world. The Phantom of the Opera is Broadway's longest running show and has been seen by over 100 million people worldwide.

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, he haunts the grand Paris Opera House. Sheltered from the outside world in an underground cavern, the lonely, romantic man tutors and composes operas for Christine Daaé, a gorgeous young soprano star-to-be. The love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. As Christine's star rises, and a handsome suitor from her past enters the picture, the Phantom grows mad, terrorizing the opera house owners and company with his murderous ways. Still, Christine finds herself drawn to the mystery man.



LOVE NEVER DIES

From the composer of some of the greatest musicals of all time, comes Andrew Lloyd Webber's breathtaking new musical - Love Never Dies. The extraordinary production was the winner of three prestigious Helpmann Awards for Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design and Best Lighting Design. Love Never Dies continues the story of The Phantom of the Opera, featuring one of Lloyd Webber's finest musical scores performed by a 21 piece orchestra, a stunning cast of 36, over 300 incredible costumes and a magnificent set illuminated by over 5,000 dazzling light bulbs. Come and enjoy the fully staged performance of Love Never Dies captured from The Regent Theatre in Melbourne, Australia.

The year is 1907. It is 10 years after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House and the Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. Here, the Phantom begins a new life amongst the freaks and side-shows. In this new electrically charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love - Christine Daaé, who is now one of the world's finest sopranos. It is with excitement she accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island... not knowing what is in store for them.

The Phantom of the Opera will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, July 24 and Wednesday, July 25 at 4 p.m. and on Friday, July 27 at 7 p.m.
