I agree. I was hoping to see a fresh cast, preferably French.

I won't exactly say Sierra is too old for the part. But to me she always seems to have a poise and maturity that didn't quite fit. I first saw her in LND, and that was fine because it was a 10-years-older Christine. But when she was the (original) Christine in the 25th Anniversary show in 2011, I felt she lacked the girlish quality I look for. Leroux doesn't exactly spell out Christine's age, but I think she ought to be around 20-22, with a childlike naivety that I don't find in Sierra.

And it must be annoying for any up-and-coming French sopranos who'd have loved a chance at the role. But maybe Sierra is to be the big-name "bankable" star to pull in audiences, and local talent will get their chance in the other parts.

The theatre's "auditions" page is now only looking for one more person, a lyric tenor for the chorus with the possibility of understudying Piangi.

So it looks like all the main parts have now been cast, or at least have enough applicants that they are confident of finding who they want.

I've been checking the theatre web site, and there is no cast list as yet. Sierra being cast as Christine was published elsewhere, as a piece of showbiz news. The only other thing I've had to go on is the list on the audition page of actors required and, as I said, they've now deleted most of that.

According to Sierra's instragram, Raoul will be played by Bastien Jacquemart. Still waiting on who will be the Phantom.

Ooh! Thanks for posting the cast info! Must admit I don't know who any of them are except Sierra; but I hope the cast will be good, and that they'll announce the Phantom soon. (Hoping for an excellent one!)


It's wiser to be mad... in a world that's gone insane!

Thanks to Michelle for posting this, and to James for putting the info on Deserted Phans.

There are still no updates on the Theatre Mogador's website. They are still booking through until January.

Merci beaucoup glad to see there is Meg Giry in there after all? I wonder how she seemed to be missing before
