Continued from page 10
musical elements of the plot over its
scariness assured its less-than-modest
success. In 1962, the British tried to
milk success out of the original with
their new version. Today, however,
people are probably most familiar
.with Andrew Lloyd Webber's musi-
*.cal which has become a wild success
:both in London and New York. Last
*and probably least, however, Freddy
;(that is, actor Robert Englund) had
to try the original formula in Mena-
hem Golan's new rendition of the
;Phantom story, probably better titled
as Nightmare on Elm Street Goes to
,the Opera.
No horror fan has entered the col-
lective unconscious of the genre
z without having experienced the orig-
"inal Phantom of the Opera. The
:*Phantom plays on the classic for-
mula of beauty and the beast, and
many of its devices have become
norms 'in the horror genre.
Although we take for granted the ef-
fortless look of modern technology,
one can only but admire the ingenu-
ity of the early special effects as we
catch a glimpse of the workings of
their verisimilitude.
Rupert Julian's 1925 original THE
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA will
make its annual appearance with
the Ann Arbor Chamber Orchestra
tonight at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.

REVIEWS
Continued from page 12
especially prevalent among non-wind
instrumentalists, occurs when an
often performed piece becomes
routine, triggering an auto pilot
signal which shuts off the normal
flow of imagination. The result is a
flawless but dry performance.
During the all-Schumann second
half, however, the clouds dissipated,
Zukerman's auto pilot sign went off,
and he returned to the stage. The
Three Romances and the Sonata in
A minor got treated to the full atten-
tion of Zukerman's heart and fingers.
It was as though he'd switched to a
different violin during intermission.
He played with renewed sensitivity
and finesse. His new involvement
tranformed the blas6 back-and-forth
of the violin and piano in the first
half into an eloquent and intricate
conversation, the kind cultivated
from 14 years of collaboration with
the expressive Marc Neikrug.
The encores were the highlight of
the evening. Only Pinchas Zuker-
man could get away with playing a
set of unknown pieces by an un-
known "very neglected" composer
for an encore, and still walk away
with three curtain calls. If they had
replaced the Beethoven, the first half
would have shined as brightly as the
second half of the concert.
-Sherrill L. Bennett
Front Line
Assembly's
toxic waste
kiss
Friday night and St. Andrew's
Hall, arguably the best host to live
entertainment ever in Detroit,
opened its doors to Front Line
Assembly. F.L.A., only three al-
bums old, is Canada's contribution
to hate-filled industrial bash music.

In the same vein as Nitzer Ebb and
F.L.A.'sbrothers under the Wax
Trax label Front 242, Front Line
Assembly scorched the audience with
searing vocals (via the depths of
hell) over incessant and jarring
rhythms. Vocalist Bill Leeb (6'4")
and guitarist Michael Balch (6'3")
dominated the shorter though tightly
packed audience with an intensity ri-
valing mid-coastal California's rank-
ing of 6.98.
Drummer and associate F.L.A.
member Rhys Fulber found the
needed industrial sound not on con-
ventional drums but kettles of, I be-
lieve, toxic waste. And by the sec-
ond song, "Digital Tension Demen-
tia," this guy sitting next to me
(we'll call him John) remarked on
the obvious, saying that if anything
Rhys was merely playing over a pre-
recorded rhythm track. A little disen-
chanted, I momentarily scanned the
audience and, if in a word I had to
describe the situation, only the word
scary would suffice. It was scary in
the same way a first kiss is scary.
The crowd seemed filled with expec-
tations and self-doubt. And when one
of the more spirited in the audience
stage-dived, he found the floor in-
stead of the pocketed hands of the
expectant audience.
The docile crowd wasn't however
a result of the band's performance
but only a slight distraction. High-
lights included a rousing perfor-
mance of "Blood Sport" followed by
"Body Count," both infectiously
danceable and conducive to a mild
migraine headache. And the solitary
encore of "Fools Game" begged to
be followed by anything but tie
house lights, but my silent plea fell
on, by now, deaf ears.
Like my first kiss, Front Line
Assembly's performance both fright-
ened and satisfied, but didn't satiate.
I guess like the rest of the audience I
anticipated consummation but
walked away only pleasantly teased.
