The Phantom of the Opera
Running at Her Majesty’s Theatre since 9 October 1986, The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most popular and beloved musicals in the world. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s smash hit has won both Tony and Olivier Awards, and broke Broadway’s record for longest running musical by thousands of performances. The modern classic is based on Gaston Leroux’s novel of the same name, where a disfigured musical genius lurks unseen in Paris’s opera house. He has taught orphaned soprano Christine to sing from a young age, but she and the rest of the company believes him to be a spirit. His unrequited love for her leads to tragedy, adventure and eventual remorse. Stunning design, technical effects and Lloyd Webber’s score have brought this unforgettable story to life each night, capturing the hearts and minds of West End audiences for decades.
