opera opera


so long story short, I L-O-V-E @chaosflight‘s Phantom of the Opera-based gemsona (her’s is a Phantom Fluorite) so I made my own based off Leroux! 

Being a quartz, I think Erik here would be pretty high-class for a gem? Maybe not a commander, but like an architect for White Diamond in the same way Lerik built palaces for the Shah. Keeping with the Leroux parallels, he angered her in some way, and she attempted to shatter him but he managed to escape- hence why he’s so scurry looking, because he’s slightly corrupted.

Christine and Raoul both work for Blue Diamond. Lolites are performers for the higher-ups, and, like most lapis lazulis, Raoul is a messenger/scout.


Happy 2017!

It’s been a great year working with all these amazing collaborators!  Looking past the chaos that sits in the White House, I’m proud of the work we’ve done both onstage and as artists and cannot wait for what we create in 2018.  Lots of exciting projects coming up that I think you all are going to love.  



Top: the red 2nd Managers, which was introduced some months after the premiere. Ceris Donovan remarks how little this costume has changed in West End since 1986-87, apart from the materials.

Bottom: The elusive Spider Dance Masquerade costume. I don’t think this is the very first she wore, though. The first was quite different, and more purple.

Name: Chloe
Age: 15
Country: Australia

My name’s Chloe and I’m a Fifteen, but you already knew that! I’m a student from Australia. I identify as a bisexual female.

I enjoy various musicals such as Phantom of the Opera, Be More Chill, Hamilton, Les Miserables, Kinky Boots (there are way too many to name). I have been a musician for the past 8 years playing piano, saxophone, and singing. I read what is probably considered an unhealthy amount of fanfiction and books in my spare time.

I’m looking for someone who shares my interests and loves to have a good laugh!

Preferences: I’d prefer to talk to someone between the age of 15-18. I’d like to talk to someone who speaks English but I don’t mind if someone who doesn’t speak English wants to speak. I’m happy to talk through email, tumblr, and eventually Skype and maybe snail mail depending on the country. I would like someone who isn’t homophobic or racist or just an asshole in general! :)

that feeling

when you’re sitting in a theatre waiting for a show to start and then you hear the overture begin and the lights start to slowly come up and you get goosebumps and you know that you’re about to witness the beauty that is live theatre for the next two hours and you get excited and emotional and it just reminds you even more of why you love theatre
