The Phantom Of The Opera (Big Finish)
The Phantom of the Opera, an adaptation of the novel of the same title by Gaston Leroux, is an audio drama created by Big Finish Productions for BBC Radio 7, broadcast in December 2007.
The story was written and directed by Barnaby Edwards in four half-hour episodes. The four-part dramatization is the first to feature the original operatic sequences described in the novel, which have been freshly recorded and orchestrated by composer Tim Sutton. The play features Anna Massey, Peter Guinness, Alexander Siddig and James D’Arcy.
Barnaby Edwards has said it will be relaunched in June 2009, as part of a new Big Finish Classics series of literary adaptations tentatively planned for 2010-2012.
