The Phantom of the Opera is a classic story that has stood the test of time, and has been adapted into no less than two musical productions, including the beloved version written by Andrew Lloyd Weber that opened on Broadway in 1988. It's the classic story of a horribly disfigured man who becomes smitten with a talented opera singer. He trains her in her trade, abducts her, threatens to blow up the opera house where she performs and where he lives when there are lots of people in it. He listens to reason, and, well, you get the idea. It is the quintessential tragic love story. The story is timeless, and has inspired countless retellings, from books to plays, television programs to movies, and too many parodies to list. So, why do we bring it up here? Because we have our very own interpretation of the story of the Phantom here at the American Treasure Tour, thanks to the dedicated artistic expression of Bob Omrod - our official pop culture guru and creator of the Giant World of Miniatures on display in our Music Room. In one impressive diorama, the story of the drama at the opera house is told, using moving parts, action figures, and the creative incorporation of normal household object. Our favorite example of this is the golden dome atop the opera house itself: it is made out of an old salad bowl, painted gold with priceless plastic gems decorating its exterior.
