EMMA LEADS PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

On Sunday 8th October, for the very first time the iconic silent film The Phantom of The Opera will be screened with the premiere of a score by legendary musician and film composer Roy Budd. This is a not to be missed one-off event with Emma leading the Docklands Sinfonia, conducted by Spencer Down.

As a child prodigy performer, Budd debuted at the Coliseum in 1953 at 6 years of age. 64 years later, it is only fitting that the Coliseum will again play host to Budd in what is arguably his greatest achievement – a grand soundtrack for a full orchestra with several themes and leitmotifs that pay tribute to the great composers of the concert hall and screen, while at the same time being unmistakably the work of its inspired creator.

Budd tragically and unexpectedly passed away in 1993 at 46 years old, five weeks shy of the original premiere which never eventuated due to his passing. 24 years later, Emma and the Docklands Sinfonia are proud to be performing the premiere of his masterpiece work.

Tickets are available to purchase through the London Coliseum box office only (not through the Docklands Sinfonia box office).

For more information, please contact the London Coliseum on 020 7845 9300 or box.office@eno.org
