The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall

 (2011)

The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Fully-staged, commemorative live performance of 'The Phantom of the Opera', the popular Andrew Lloyd Webber stage musical based on the French novel 'Le Fantôme de l'Opéra', by Gaston Leroux. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of The Phantom of the Opera, three special performances were filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the third of which was screened live worldwide on October 2nd, 2011. For the film's Home Video release, and for all subsequent releases, footage from all three performances was edited together.

The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall 25th Anniversary is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is a spectacularly effective transfer that is sharp and appealing, with absolutely eye popping color and incredible detail apparent on the production's unbelievably opulent costumes, many of which almost pop off the screen in close-ups. The entire production features beautifully saturated colors, solid blacks and stable contrast. About the only issue with this presentation is some persistent moiré which crops up with fair regularity on the huge screen behind the stage which features gigantic projections. Other than that anomaly, this is a trouble free and highly enjoyable presentation that should delight all of the Phantom's many fans.


The Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Update: Several of our members have posted asking about the center channel on this release. It is not missing, though it is used differently than center channels regularly are. Once I noticed the postings, I went back and actually put my ear next to the center channel to discern what's going on. It is in fact inactive in the opening Prologue, no doubt contributing to the inadequate levels I note with regard to the Auctioneer below. But it does kick into action during the Overture and stays regularly active after that. At times it seems over-reverbed, as if it's being used mostly for ambient hall effect rather than actual direct audio feed. I've slightly lowered the audio score after revisiting this aspect.

Universal regularly does some frankly screwy things with their audio options on their music or concert titles, regularly having their Blu-ray discs default to Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks, and then having what most home theater aficionados are probably going to want, a lossless 5.1 option (usually DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1), as the third choice. Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall 25th Anniversary ups that oddness on two levels: first, the disc defaults to a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix, and then, even more peculiarly, the disc does not allow easy toggling to the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that is included. Instead you need to either go back to the Main Menu or the Pop-Up Menu and access Setup and make the appropriate audio choice there. That slight difficulty aside, for the most part the 5.1 track is incredibly well rendered, at least after the main singing gets underway. For some reason the Prologue is mixed rather low (or was inadequately miked), and the Auctioneer is a bit hard to hear. Once the main thrust of the show gets underway, the DTS- HD Master Audio 5.1 track easily supports everything from the coloratura warbling to the synth-laden moments of the score. Balance is excellent between the orchestra and the singers and The Royal Albert Hall's natural ambience is caught magnificently on this track.
