On Tuesday, January 12th, members of Milton District’s French department went downtown to see Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera.
The Princess of Wales Theatre was filled with people eager to see the play. After a strenuous trek up enough flights of stairs to make those wearing high-heels rethink their decision, the Mustangs reached their seats at the highest balcony.
The musical started promptly at 7:30. The balcony seats provided the Mustangs with an exquisite view of the performance.

The most thrilling moment of the musical was the infamous chandelier scene, in which the magnificent fixture fell from the ceiling into the crowd. It was easy to believe that a fraction of the audience was crushed, because the effects were so spectacular.
After a 20 minute intermission, the performance continued. Time flew, and far too soon, the musical was finished.
At 11:15, the bus came back to Milton, and the very tired MD staff and students returned home.
Overall, The Phantom of the Opera was a spectacular event, and an experience that will never be forgotten.
