THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
The musical opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles, and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 11,000 performances.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breath-taking special effects, combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.
The Phanton of the Opera has music by Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Charles Hart with additions by Richard Stilgoe, and book by Lloyd Webber and Stilgoes, based on Gaston Leroux's French novel Le Fantome de l'Opera.
