About the show

After playing in the West End for over 30 years, Andrew Lloyd Webber's global smash-hit The Phantom of the Opera has become the second longest-running musical in London, and the longest-running show on Broadway. With stunning sets, gorgeous costume and dazzling special effects, this unmissable production continues to be one of the most popular in town.

Based on Gaston Leroux’s original novel, The Phantom of the Opera follows the story of a Parisian Opera house haunted by a mythical musical genius, infamously known as the Phantom. When beautiful young soprano Christine Daaé becomes the Phantom’s protégée and object of his affections, it becomes clear that he will stop at nothing to make her his. However, when she falls for Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny, the Phantom’s love turns to vengeful jealousy in this tale of obsession and desire.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic score, which features lyrics by Charles Hart and additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe, is known around the world, including classics such as "Think of Me", "The Music of the Night", "All I Ask of You", "Masquerade" and the ominous title song "The Phantom of the Opera".

Originally opening in 1986, the production is directed by Harold Prince and choreographed by Gillian Lynne and went on to receive both the Olivier and Tony Award for Best New Musical and Best Musical respectively. Original casting included Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford as Christine and the Phantom, with casting standards kept high ever since with some of the Musical Theatre world’s finest talents being attracted to the famous roles.

The record breaking show has been seen across the globe and has proved so popular it sparked a film adaptation, sequel Love Never Dies and a purpose-built $75 million dollar Las Vegas spectacular, which featured a real lake.

Casting includes Josh Piterman as the Phantom, Kelly Mathieson as Christine, Danny Whitehead as Raoul, Richard Woodford as Monsieur Andre, Jacinta Mulcahy as Madame Giry, Paul Ettore Tabone as Ubaldo Piangi, and Georgia Ware as Meg Giry, as well as Britt Lenting as Carlotta and Ross Dawes as Monsieur Firmin. From 10 December 2018, David Thaxton will play the part of the Phantom. Howar will then return to the role on 13 May 2019.

Additional members are Matthew Barrow, Matt Bateman, James Bisp, James Butcher, Bridget Costello, Sophie Cottrill, Hadrian Delacey, Morven Douglas, Paul Erbs, Hannah Grace, Philip Griffiths, Katy Hanna, Hettie Hobbs, Grace Horne, Lily Howes, Ellen Jackson, Adam Robert Lewis, Kris Manuel, Tim Morgan, Danielle Pullum, Rebecca Ridout, Anna Shircliff, Emily Smith, Rachel Spurrell, John Stacey, Andrei Teodor Iliescu, Claire Tilling, Victoria Ward and Danny Whitehead.

Continuing as one of the West End’s best loved musicals, The Phantom of the Opera is a truly magical theatrical experience and must be seen to be believed.
