Celebrities are flocking to see Phantom in Taipei, but none made headlines as much as YouTube sensations Zony and Yony.
For an arena it isn’t all that much. But for a theatrical piece it’s massive, IMHO too large. Why? Cause in the seats furthest away from stage the cast will merely look like dots. Of course there’s the large screens next to the stage, where a well edited version of the show is transmitted. But if we’re at this point - why just not see the RAH performance at home? A lot of the theatrical experience is to me to see the cast and feel the energy on stage.
Not saying I would not see the World Tour in Taipei if I had the chance. But I don’t want a 5,000 arena + big screens to become the standard :)
AsiaWorld-Expo Arena will have a smaller capacity (but still two times larger compared to previous 2,000-seater theatres) at 4,000.
"A new theatre space will be created especially for THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. The international production will be staged in a specially constructed 4,000-seat theatre environment, inside AsiaWorld Expo Arena" They are calling it AsiaWorld-Expo, Arena in Theatre Mode.
Media call time! #phantomoftheopera #thephantomoftheopera #phantomintaipei #taiwan
