This is an auction for THE COMPLETE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA by George Perry.

"Based on Gaston Leroux's potboiler of the same name, Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical The Phantom of the Opera is a solid hit in London and a box-office success in New York. Perry's volume, which serves essentially as a souvenir of the stage production, includes the musical's libretto, a fascinating account of the show's genesis, and spectacular color photographs and drawings. Introductory material covers the Paris Opera House, Leroux, the original novel, and its various film versions. The book's plum is the show's libretto, which, even devoid of its evocative score, is the finest adaptation to date of Leroux's original idea. A memento of a highly creative musical."

"THE COMPLETE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a lavishly illustrated book that surveys the background and theatrical treatments of the Phantom story. Perry has included a discussion of the Paris Opera building, the 1911 novel by Gaston Leroux, the films, and Andrew Lloyd Webber's current stage hit (which comprises two-thirds of the book). The entire libretto is included. The composer, cast, and production staff appear in text and pictures. There are some fascinating behind-the-scenes tidbits about makeup, costuming, and stagecraft techniques. Reasons for certain pre-production decisions are discussed by Lloyd Webber, Hal Prince, and others in positions of artistic direction. Many color photographs show the production itself. This book will be enjoyed by those who love the theater from either side of the proscenium."
