Tickets for "Phantom of the Opera" selling at brisk pace
(The following press release and photo were submitted to MyFox23.com from Southern Miss' School of Music.)
The Phantom of the Opera director, Dr. Michael Lopinto describes the pace of ticket sales as “brisk.” According to Lopinto very, very few tickets remain for opening weekend, Friday evening and Sunday matinee, and the final performance. “All other performances have some tickets but they are going very quickly,” Lopinto said.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera will take to the stage of the Mannoni Performing Arts Center Auditorium October 26 through November 4, presented by The University of Southern Mississippi School of Music. Phantom is another epic production from the team that produced the much-acclaimed Disney and Cameron Mackintosh’s Mary Poppins, at Southern Miss.
In this talented team, Lopinto is joined with music direction by Dr. Jay Dean and Dr. Michael Miles. The production will feature a cast of talented acting, singing and dancing students from Southern Miss School of Music and the venerable USM Symphony Orchestra in an elaborate spectacle.
