I was excited to be able to watch the Phantom of the Opera in London, which I loved during it tour in Singapore a few years back.
However, I was disappointed with the show in London and was close to falling asleep throughout the performance.
The Phantom was nowhere imposing and Raoul sang without much emotions. Christine was passable but forgettable.
I did spot quite a few people picking up their coats during the interval and leaving while a number of people who stayed after the intervals were visibly restless.
This was a far cry from Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre where the audience gave a standing ovation at the end of the performance.
