Phantom of the Opera

Acclaimed organist Nigel Ogden brings Rupert Julian’s classic 1925 film, starring Lon Cheney, to life with organ improvisation.
In this silent horror classic, aspiring young opera singer Christine Daaé (Mary Philbin) discovers that she has a mysterious admirer intent on helping her become a lead performer. This masked presence  (Lon Chaney) is a horribly disfigured recluse who lives underneath the Paris Opera House
 
Nigel Ogden
Nigel Ogden has been the Presenter of BBC Radio 2's ‘The Organist Entertains’ since 1980.  As well as being a well-known ‘voice’, Nigel's style of music-making at the organ has made him one of the country’s most popular performers and his all-round versatility ensures that his varied concert programmes of popular and light classical music are guaranteed to satisfy all but the most extreme musical tastes! At the console of a Mighty Wurlitzer or a great cathedral organ, in church or chapel, on pipes or electronics, an instrument will sing and dance under his magic touch.
