WATCH: The Phantom of the Opera Brings Us to His Underground Lair

It's a very enchanting scene.

(SPOT.ph) The Phantom of the Opera, Broadway's longest-running musical, is known for its special effects that you wouldn't imagine could be done in live theater. There's a low-lying fog that cascades down staircases, a flying chandelier, balls of fire that seem to come from a skull head, and even pyrotechnics. This spectacle continues to wow the Filipino audience as the Manila leg of The Phantom of the Opera’s international tour runs until April 6 at The Theatre at Solaire in Parañaque City.

One of the scenes that portray some of the musical's most incredible effects is that of the Phantom taking Christine Daae to his underground lair. Happening in the fourth scene of Act I, it shows moving staircases to highlight how far below the ground this labyrinth is, a massive gate, hundreds of candles and lamps, and a boat on a lake. It also features the musical's titular song, "The Phantom of the Opera," where we find out more about the relationship between the Phantom and Christine.
