Kamloops Symphony to stream and screen The Phantom of the Opera

The Kamloops Symphony has taken on a classic for a concert that will begin its run on Halloween.

The presentation will combine the 1925 silent horror film The Phantom of the Opera with a score created by Montreal composer Gabriel Thibaudeau, performed by Kamloops Symphony musicians.

The video performance will be available from Oct. 31 to Nov. 29.

Two big-screen viewings at the Paramount Theatre will also be available on Nov. 8, at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.

Silent films traditionally featured an accompanying live musical score. The work the 10 symphony musicians will perform was created by Thibaudeau in 1990.

KSO music director Dina Gilbert will lead two violins, a viola, cello, bass, clarinet, bassoon, French horn, piano and percussion instruments, joined by guest artist soprano Magdalena How.

Tickets for online viewings are $15 each, or $25 per household, while a showing at the Paramount will cost $20.

Go online to kamloopslive.ca or call 250-374-5483 to purchase tickets.

The event follows a similar format to the presentation of The Soldier's Tale, which is a collaboration between Western Canada Theatre and the Kamloops Symphony, and still available for viewing until Sunday, Oct. 25. For more information on that event, go online to kamlooopssymphony.com.
