    Phantom of the Opera is my #1 musical theatre show AND experience. This was my third time seeing it, and my first time from the Stalls. I don't think I'll ever want to go back to watching it from the Circles now. The whole show is a masterpiece: the score, the singing, the acting, the staging, the props, the lighting, everything! Every single cast member is a highly trained performer, which is essential for the incomparable music. If you have one show to see in London, please make sure it's Phantom!
    Sat in Stalls C5
    This seat, second row from the stage, is wonderful. You have such a close-up of the cast, especially when they come right to the front in certain scenes. The legroom was surprisingly generous, and you did not need to crane your neck at all. The seat itself is very comfortable, and you're right next to the orchestra pit.

    The show was wonderful, and exactly how I thought it would be. We saw understudy Phantom, and I'm really glad because he was phenomenal; he literally made the hairs on my arms stand up. The one scene that disappointed me was Masquerade, I really thought it would be better. The choreography in it is really lacking, but the costumes are out of this world though.
    Sat in Stalls O31
    My legs did not love the lack of room and I was praying for the interval to come so I could stand up and stretch. Very uncomfortable seats too. The view was a little restricted, especially regarding the chandelier, but I suppose I couldn't expect anything else.

    Excellent show. This is the second time I've seen it this year and I could easily watch it again. The actor playing Phantom gives a wonderful performance and portrays him as a perfect blend of villain and victim. Beautiful singing from everyone. And to lighten the mood at times there is just the right amount of humour. Wonderful show and I can fully understand why it's still playing to packed theatres.
    Sat in Stalls G21
    This was a great seat to see Phantom of the Opera. Close enough to the stage to see the expressions on the actors' faces but far enough back that you weren't craning your neck looking up at the stage. The seats are spaced so that you can look between the people sitting in the seats in the row in front of you. There were occasional moments when the view of the very front of the stage was blocked but this did not spoil the show. I would say I had a perfect view for at least 90% of the show and I would not hesitate to choose this seat again. As with many theatres, there is not a massive amount of leg room but it isn't too bad. I didn't find this a problem and wasn't uncomfortable for the length of the show.

    Oh my! Will definitely watch this again. No boring scene. Costumes were fantastic. We were lucky we had Ms. Hariette Jones at Christine. She was lovely. Voice was superb. Love every minute of the show. All the parts of the stage are maximised.
    Right part of the stage very restricted. Some scenes unable to see. Seats a bit uncomfortable since very limited legroom and the seats are not as comfy as the other theatre. However, all these I didn't mind at all since the show was superb.

STORY
The Phantom of the Opera has become the longest running show on Broadway and the second longest running musical in London for a reason. Stunning sets, sumptuous costumes and magical special effects, not to mention a gripping story and beautiful score by a certain Andrew Lloyd Webber combine to make this one unmissable show and one of the hottest tickets in town.

Based on Gaston Leroux’s novel, the show tells the story of a Paris Opera house haunted by a disfigured musical genius known as the Phantom. Beautiful young soprano Christine Daaé becomes the Phantom’s protégée and object of his desire; he will stop at nothing to make her a star. However when she attracts the attentions of Raoul, the Vicomte de Chagny, the Phantom’s love turns to vengeful jealousy in this tale of obsessional love and forbidden romance.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic score, which features lyrics by Charles Hart, includes the classics “Think of Me,” “The Music of the Night,” “All I Ask of You,” and “Masquerade”.

The original production, directed by Harold Prince and choreographed by Gillian Lynne, opened in London in 1986 before transferring to Broadway and received both the Olivier and Tony Award for Best New Musical and Best Musical respectively. The original cast included Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford and casting standards have been 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 has sparked a film adaptation, a sequel Love Never Dies and a purpose built $75 million dollar Las Vegas spectacular which featured a real lake.

The Phantom of the Opera continues to be one of the West End’s best loved musicals and a truly special theatrical experience. So if you haven't seen it yet - what are you waiting for? Get your tickets now!
