So, a friend and I were getting into a debate over whether Phantom of the Opera uses a real organ in the musicals - talking orignial musical (london) and also the NYC resident musical, and movie. We figured the touring one doesn't. Anyone know? It must be a huge organ - sounds like they would have at least three ranks of 32' pipes (my guess - two horns and a principal), plus at least 35-50 ranks of combined 16', 8', 4', 2', etc with some nice combos of horn, flute, and principals... To clarify - real organ = pipes. My guess is a combo of real/digital pipes.
