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...
It's going to be a night to remember! Laura Martins and Paul Tabone head to Live at Zedel for one night this month in a diva-off fit for the Kings and Queens of stage! The PHANTOM OF THE OPERA stars will be facing off this Sunday 15 October, showing off their vocal chops in the process...
Don't be too sad to wave goodbye to Ben Forster - THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has a new Ben on the way, and he's not exactly new to the role of the masked man. Ben Lewis was acclaimed in the Australian premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber sequel Love Never Dies. Which other #StageFaves join him in the West End from 4 September?
Good news for phans! Ben Forster, the masked man who led THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA's 30th birthday gala celebrations this past October, has extended his run. He'll remain in the show, along with Celinde Schoenmaker and Nadim Naaman as Christine and Raoul, until 2 September. Do you know who else calls the Paris Opera House home these days?...
