'Phantom' show on Las Vegas Strip to close

 

The Las Vegas version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" is planning its last performance in September. The cast of "Phantom -- The Las Vegas Spectacular" will take a final bow on Sept. 2 after a six-year run.

Producer Scott Zeiger says the show at the Venetian casino on the Las Vegas Strip has had a triumphant run. The production is housed in a custom built replica of the famed Paris Opera House. It features a $5 million chandelier that nearly crashed into the audience during each performance as a special effect.

"The Phantom of the Opera" celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2011. It has played to more than 130 million people in 27 countries and has grossed more than $5.6 billion worldwide.
