Operafantomet: phantoming
Michael Crawford in Wandering Child, West End 1986. Note how different the original cross was. Skulls, as a nod to Leroux’s description of the graveyard in Perros, and a larger foot. Crawford emerged from the back of the cross instead of coming out from the cross itself. I don’t know when the design was changed, but I don’t think the skulls was kept for the 1988 Broadway production, and they’ve since disappeared from West End too.
