The Phantom of the OperaMINIMAThis event has now finished
Beneath the sewers of the Paris Opera House dwells the Phantom, a hideously disfigured composer whose dream it is to turn chorus singer Christine into a diva. Lon Chaney, the ‘Man of a Thousand Faces’, dominates this classic 1925 adaptation of the 1910 novel by Gaston Leroux, whose ghastly make-up and outrageous performance made this one of the great classics of American silent film.
This screening of the original film will feature a new music score performed live by acclaimed soundscapers Minima, a Bristol based quartet who use instrumentation including cello, double bass, baritone guitar, acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, autoharp, dulcimer, synthesizer, glockenspiel and drum kit to create a unique live experience.
“A superbly sinister live score by the soundtrack group Minima.”Financial Times
