About The Phantom Of The Opera
Now celebrating 32 record-breaking years, this multi-award winning musical continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End.
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.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score magically combines with jaw-dropping scenery and breath-taking special effects to bring this tragic love story to life each night.
