There are few plays quite as iconic as The Phantom of the Opera. It began its run on Broadway back in 1986, earning acclaim not only for the play, but also the music, composed from the brilliant mind of Andrew Lloyd Webber (Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats). It was clear to see that the show was so ahead of its time from the outset – a true pioneer of immersive theatre – with a continuing spirit of reinvention.
In this spirit, a plethora of producers were called upon to offer remixes to this legendary play. These remixes are a natural next step in that tradition, maintaining the title track’s classic and memorable essence while also finding new ways to give it fresh life. There’s plenty to choose from here spanning plenty of genres of electronic music, but some standouts for us include ABOUT THAT‘s dub, seamlessly blending house elements with opera with a result that feels so natural. ABOUT THAT’s remix was actually revealed by Andrew Lloyd Webber at a block party outside the Majestic Theatre in NYC to celebrate the reopening of Phantom on Broadway last year (after the Covid-related closure).
Japanese producer 2118 and legendary Spanish DJ Supermini collaborated on one version which features vocals from current West End (London) leads Killian Donnelly and Lucy St.Louis, that feels like a peak time anthem.
