Seen by over 140 million people worldwide, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is one of the highest grossing musicals of all time.

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. Now in its 33rd record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 13,000 performances. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breath-taking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.
