Le Fantôme de l’Opéra Explosions/Loud noises: when do they occur in the play?
I am seeing the new production later this month. It will be my 3rd time seeing "Phantom" -- the other two times being in the late 90's.
But I have a rather unique question for you:
I have cerebral palsy and am in a wheelchair. A much less obvious symptom is that I startle VERY easily with loud noises.
The first time I saw the play, I was, of course, taken by surprise. I was prepared for the second time.
But so much time has passed that I forget, apart from the huge one just as the Overture starts (who could forget that?), when the other two (or three?) explosions happen in the course of the play.
Can any of you kindly illuminate me as to when they occur? If any of you could tell me (and it would be even better if you could tell me before which lines they occur) I would be MOST grateful.
I do have the original CD of the whole play, but of course, the explosions do not happen on the CD. And so I put the question to you. I would love to know precisely when I should plug my ears.
Thanks for all replies!
