The Hamburg production is again a fabulous production that produces absolutely stunning pictures (German productions have always seemed to be good with that though, as proven by all the Colby pictures). Lauri Brons and Valerie Link are easy to tell apart, I think Mathias Edenbron is the Phantom in all these and Nicky Wuchinger is of course Raoul.

[On a side note Valerie’s high notes at the end of the title song are dreamy as hell and if you’ve never listened to them you should]
