Phantom of the Opera - The Roy Budd score coming to the London Coliseum for one night only!

Don't miss the World Premiere of Roy Budd’s masterpiece score to the 1925 classic silent film.

For the very first time, the iconic silent film will be shown with the score by legendary musician and film composer Roy Budd. This is a not to be missed one-off event performed by Docklands Sinfonia, conducted by Spencer Down.

As a child prodigy performer, Budd debuted at the London 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 we are very proud to stage the Premiere of his masterpiece work.

“Succulent score!”  - The Times

“With exceptional orchestral refinement, and a sublimely gentle British restraint, as though it were a piece by Vaughan-Williams, Budd breathes life into the film with a flowing stream of dark Romantic, at times sumptuously lyrical, melodies.” - Cinema Musica

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A SILENT FILM WITH MUSIC SCORE PERFOMED LIVE.

An excellent performance of a rare score, brought to life by a top class group of musicians and with a delightful introduction by the composer's widow which made the whole event very personal.

We all loved it. Very dramatic and compelling. Still speaks to today. The score matched the film brilliantly.
