Should you find the phantom of the opera there, inside your mind, then get this: Max Mara in the Design District will be displaying costumes from the original Phantom of the Opera inside the store through Tuesday, March 1st.
Through March 6th you can catch the show playing at The Adrienne Arsht Center, however this isn't your traditional Andrew Webber Phantom of the Opera. Rather, this is Cameron Mackintosh's rendition. As in, the same Cameron Mckintosh who is responsible for such productions as Cats!, Les Misérables, and Miss Saigon.
On display at Max Mara are three original Phantom costume designs by Tony Award-winning designer, Maria Björnson. The costumes include The Phantom's suit, the Spanish-style costume worn by Christine Daaé when she plays Zerlina during Act 2, and the costume worn by the character Carolotta Guidicelli.
Head to the Design District to check it out.
