Final Essay Topic: The Phantom of the Opera

21 Oct

For my final project, I want to focus on The Phantom of the Opera and how the musical represents almost every theme and topic that we have discussed in class. From physical disability to operatic themes of innocence and sexuality to interesting gender dynamics, The Phantom of the Opera offers a complex story that is only enhanced by its music. With my new knowledge and understanding from this course, I want to critically evaluate this musical and figure out why it deserves to be the longest running show on Broadway.

  1. Leah, nice choice of topic! Phantom definitely intersects with several class themes, and it does so in some really problematic ways. It will be interesting to see what you do with this!
