The Brilliant Original: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA celebrated its 25th Anniversary with three spectacular sell-out performances at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2011. Now in its 26th record-breaking year, this multi-award winning musical continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 10,000 performances. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night. “Remains the most exciting musical in London” – Daily Mail Please Note: the sides of the Grand Circle are sided view restricted.

In Full: Often regarded as Lloyd Webber’s most effective contribution to the musical form, Phantom has toured world wide but fails to deliver the scarey thrill promised by its cast of ghosts and sickly lovers.
More sinister at a time when grand old singalongs are failing to win an audience is the threat this ghost of a story poses to future musicals. Yes, it’s sumptuous, visually spellbinding and all that kind of stuff, and yes, Lloyd Webber’s tunes are a cut above his usual efforts, but it still must rank as melodrama of the blandest kind.
