Phantom of the Opera

These are various rehearsal tracks for Phantom of the Opera.  Some are a commercially available backing track, some are hand scored, some are recordings taken by us at rehearsal just to give us a track to practice with.

As Philip mentioned usually when we put the books down and start Choreography the singing goes all to hell.  Also in a few months time these first songs we have learn’t will be a vague memory in the past, so it is really useful to have something to keep practicing against.

Let me know if there is anything specific that you need to rehearse with and I will see what I can do about getting it.

If anyone else has any rehearsal material they want to post here just email it to me at:  haydn(dot)allbutt(at)sydney(dot)edu(dot)au

(excuse the formatting to avoid spam bots getting hold of my email address!!)

These are all in .mp3 format

Act I


Song Backing
Orchestral Backing for Prima Donna

NB: I extended the french horn bit at the start to give time for the dialogue over the top of it but otherwise it is unchanged.

Meg – Vocal Line – Prima Donna

NB: the track starts just before Meg’s entry. Meg’s part is in piano, the other parts are in strings and are only playing softly in background

Firman – Vocal Line – Other parts softly in background Backing
Firman – Just the “who’d believe a diva…” part Backing
