Whoever made this - you’re a gift for the whole humanity.
Oh, and also, once, when the performers’ lists for certain days were published, there was a mistake:
It’s in Russian, yeah. But, the thing is, the name of a performer next to ‘Sarah’ is ‘Sergey Denisov’.
So, um. I bet Sergey would be a wonderful Sarah. Just look at the first picture.

That moment when you don’t feel motivated to do your work:
Then you procrastinate:
Then you try to actually do work and you panic:
So, my whole Phantom weekend is over. We somehow managed to get to the opening night! At first, my friend and I were in the fan zone, but then we were lucky to get into the theatre to see the performance! We missed the prologue and the overture, but that was ok for we had already bought the tickets for the next day’s performance. So, we’ve already seen The Phantom of the Opera in Russia twice! And I am totally sure we’ll go to see it again and again and again… :)
The show was simply amazing! Surely, there are still some minor disadvantages in the production, but they are all quite fixable. The translation isn’t very good at places and we really have… how to say…Well, actually, really not very good Meg… But that’s basically all. And I really hope they will find some other actress to play Meg eventually, I guess, there’s just no time for it now, with all the premiere stuff and everything. They were probably hoping for the best as that girl was taking singing lessons… It obviously hasn’t worked yet :’(
But all in all, it was truly magnificent! All the other cast is just wonderful! We saw the premiere cast both times: Kotova, Ozhogin, Zaytsev, Samoilova and others. All of them are just amazing! The singing is really great, as well as the acting. Ivan Ozhogin is quite an unusual Phantom, the ‘crazy genius’ kind of a Phantom, but I actually liked it. Evgeny Zaytsev is really charming as Raoul, he really looks like that brave enthusiastic boy, and he is so cute :) And I am simply in love with Tamara Kotova. She’s just perfect. That’s it.
I will definitely buy tickets later to see Dmitry Ermak and Elena Bahtiyarova as the Phantom and Christine. It’s really a shame that Dmitry fell ill right before the opening night - after all of his hard work. But I’m sure he’ll get better soon and he will make a wonderful Phantom! Best wishes to him, I hope he will get better and won’t have any problems afterwards.
Anyway, congratulations to the cast and crew of the show with its magnificent opening! Can’t wait to see this musical again and again! Thank you all, guys, truly thank you for all that magical tale you managed to tell us through the music, vocals and dialogues! You are magnificent! Best wishes to all the Russian POTO team and have a successful run!
P.S. I’ve been a phan for almost 10 years now. The Phantom of the Opera has opened the whole world of the musical theatre to me. And now I am sitting in front of my laptop typing this text and still cannot fully believe that it’s true that we now have this magnificent show here, in Moscow. It is really some kind of magic.

I still cannot fully realise it. I’ve done it. I’ve really done it.
