An explosive mash-up of music, dance, technology and silent film that offers a fresh take on this timeless tale. Original songs and powerful live performances blend with the 1925 silent film to create a show-stopping-spectacle that brings the Lon Chaney classic to three-dimensional, high-decibel life. Singers, dancers and musicians give voice to the silent film projected behind them, playing off each other, the audience and the onscreen story to create a magical exchange.
Latin and French for "Voices of Light,” Vox Lumiere is equal parts rock concert, opera, musical theater and multimedia spectacle, all working together to tell a story with projected silent movies. Each evening begins with a red carpet entry for the patrons, photo ops with the cast, refreshments and pre-show entertainment in the lobby. Once inside, patrons experience a live band, surround projection screens, hi-definition sound and a light show. The singers and dancers are lavishly costumed in steampunk-inspired attire.
“The live performers add layers of detail, insight and emotion to the narrative, as well as a 21st century ‘story-within-a-story’ that complements and is in juxtaposition with the 1920s-era film,” explains Vox Lumiere creator Kevin Saunders Hayes. “It’s more than just a show, it’s a unique entertainment experience — an immersive, multimedia extravaganza that smashes the walls between stage and screen. Our goal is to leave the audience breathless.”
Vox Lumiere–The Phantom of the Operaruns Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. on Sept. 19 and Sept. 20; Oct. 10 and Oct. 11; Nov. 14 and Nov. 15; and Dec. 12 and Dec. 13. Tickets range from $40-$75. The Los Angeles Theatre Center is located at 514 S. Spring St., Los Angeles, CA 90013. For more information and to purchase tickets, call (844) VOX-ROCK or www.voxlumiere.com.
