Starring Gerard Butler, Emmy Rossum and Minnie Driver, Phantom of the Opera is released as a feature film. The film is produced and co-written by Lloyd Webber:
The film looks and sounds fabulous and I think it’s an extraordinarily fine document of the stage show. While it doesn’t deviate much from the stage material, the film has given it an even deeper emotional center. It’s not based on the theater visually or direction-wise, but it’s still got exactly the same essence. And that’s all I could have hoped for.
