Rebecca, I agree in your feelings toward the Toronto chandelier comment. Sure it's not the Vegas chandelier but it looked lovely and it fell at a good enough speed. Sigh. Miss that show. Snow-cone? I think not! Boo to the Toronto Star.

Yeah, boo! At least Maria Björnson's chandelier actually looks like the real thing in the Palais Garnier (sadly I don't think the Vegas one does at all, in spite of all its hi-tech capabilities).

I'll never really understand the lack of love for the original London/Broadway chandelier. I, for one, like it a great deal...even without all the hi-tech bells and whistles.

I'm not a fan of the Vegas chandelier either. Sorry! I know many here much prefer it to the original, but I'm never warmed to the UFO style in the Overture. I also think it somehow looks too flat or plate-y when assembled. And, as I might have mentioned long ago, I also find a chandelier I know consists of several pieces less intimidating than a massive one. I dunno why...

I do like the speed of the falling Vegas chandelier, though. Especially compared to how they do it on Broadway and the US tour. Those ones are yaaaaawn! Broadway is particularly slow, especially when compared to Australia, Spain, Germany, and even Denmark (which was a bit slower than the three others on the list). But that's a digression... Smile

You know, I felt the same way before I saw it in person. The assembly seemed rather strange to me on YouTube and in reviews. But in person, it's so freaking cool! I'll always prefer the classic because it's, well, classic, but the Vegas chandelier is tons better than I expected it to be.

Hmm, well I saw the production in person 2 years ago (and got a supercool backstage tour from Brianne...thanks so much! Smile ) and still felt the whole thing was UFO-ish in the overture. For some reason I thought the drop wasn't particularly scary either but that might have been due to where I was sitting. I did like the fact that it dropped straight down though, as a chandelier would do, rather than gliding to the stage. And obviously the large size is a bonus in making it more realistic. Overall I tend to agree with operafantomet's thoughts.

Speaking of the new Vegas designs, what are people's thoughts on the lights surrounding Christine's mirror? I personally don't like that and personally prefer the gloomy gothic darkness of the original, but I suppose it's fitting for Vegas... The one redesign I definitely like in Vegas though is the door in the manager's office. And IIRC there may have been more candelabra in the lair (8 rather than 6)...or did I just make that up??

Am keen to go to a Vegas convention but if it's in September again I won't be able to make it this time either... Sad

I'm excited that they're doing this again next year, especially since there will be more advanced notice of it. That was the main obstacle in me going this year. I may be able to go if they have it in September again, but it is somewhat of an inconvenient time, as that's when the new semester begins. (And I will be in grad school!)
