Competition time! I hope you’re feeling lucky, because I have a very special prize to give away. You may remember reading on these pages about a screening of silent classic The Phantom of the Opera coming up in London. Not just any screening, but the premiere of Roy Budd’s symphonic score for the film, at the Coliseum opera house in London. Sadly, composer Budd died just before the planned premiere of the score in 1993. But now, more than 20 years later, his music can take its place alongside this beautiful, chilling silent film from 1925.
The even better news for one of you is that I have a pair of tickets to give away to this special event, which takes place on 8 October 2017.
To win a pair of tickets for this prestigious screening, just send the answer to this question to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight on 19 September 2017.

Good luck! The winner be chosen at random from the correct answers and will be notified by email.
