Phantom of the Opera is an original parody of the world famous musical.
The beginning of the vignette is quite the same as in the original musical, but the final is unexpectedly different.
Singer transforms step by step into the Monster.
The Phantom transforms immediately into the rabbit.
The vignette has new original construction of total transformation of marionette "in jump".
These two very difficult transforming puppets are operated by one puppeteer simultaneously.
