With the distance of more than a decade - and a couple hundred new musicals - since my last visit, I found myself with a new appreciation for this beloved show's gothic theatricality

VIDEO: The Daily Journey of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA's Wedding Dress

For nearly thirty years, Broadway audiences have been gasping and sighing at the enchanting sight when THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA's Christine Daaé enters in the late designer Maria Björnson's stunning wedding gown, a highlight of her Tony-winning costumes for the long-running classic.

Julia Udine (pictured) currently plays the demanding role, but audience members may not be aware that at the end of an evening's performance, the gown doesn't just hang in her dressing room until next time.

As explained by production seamstress Annette Lovece, there's a daily journey taken by the gown, which is disassemble after performances and sent to a dry cleaner for a full cleaning and hand-ironing. Watch the whole process in the video below.

Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L'Opéra by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group, has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and is directed by Harold Prince. Lyrics are by Charles Hart (with additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe) and the book is by Richard Stilgoe andAndrew Lloyd Webber. The Phantom of the Opera has production design by the late Maria Björnson, lighting by Andrew Bridge and sound design by Mick Potter with original sound byMartin Levan. Musical staging and choreography is by Gillian Lynne. Orchestrations are byDavid Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
