    The songs were great, although I liked the soundtrack before seeing the show. I have gone for three stars simply because I felt a poor seat view dampened my appreciation of the show itself.
    Although I attended the matinee performance of this show, I struggled to find seats of reasonable value considering there were 4 of us going and were on a bit of a budget, we still ended up splitting our group. I searched for ages and with the help of reviews chose our seats. We paid around £25 per seat which may be felt as a bargain but although I could see the stage and enjoyed the show, I feel this may have only been because I was so looking forward to seeing it with the film being a favourite of mine. My partner on the other hand has never seen the movie and was disappointed by the show. He felt he couldn't see or hear well enough to enjoy the show. As such he would not see the show again whereas I would but would fork out for better seats. There was a pillar blocking part of the stage which, although obstructing, if you are focused on the stage enough you 'almost' can look past it, if ever aware of it's presence.The sloping roof above us I felt the most annoying. It almost felt like watching the show through a letterbox. The whole view felt incredibly limited. I would not buy these seats again and I would not recommend them. You truly felt like you were in the cheap seats and there was no value. If you are desperate to see the show and on a limited time scale and budget (as we were) then yes, they will do, however I do think your experience will not be one to remember and you may leave disappointed as I did. I have given 2 stars opposed to 1 as although I would not recommend these seats, I believe there could still be worse views, if you were sitting directly behind the pillar for example. To be honest based on these seats, I do not think I would sit in the royal circle at this theatre again unless the centre views were significantly better perhaps.

    6th time viewing and brilliant as always. Catching a Thursday matinee meant the cast were unfortunately giving a somewhat half hearted performance, but still good quality.
    Got this as a cheap £25 day seat. Good close feel to the stage - nothing drastic is obscured, although you will find the very front stage right is cut off due to the angle. Also people in the rows in front leaning forward can ruin your view even more, so be aware. This particular seat cushion is quite uncomfortable as it just seems a bit old and worn down, but the legroom is reasonable. Good value but wouldn't pay much more for it.

    The Phantom of the Opera is such a visually stunning show - the effects were amazing and well-executed, the acting was amazing from all the roles and it remains a classic and important piece of theatre.
    A fair amount of the stage right corner is not visible from this seat. Unfortunately, this did mean sitting on the edge of my seat for a majority of the duration of the show which hindered the comfort and was a shame as I thoroughly enjoyed the production.

    On Feb 1st I took a trip once again to watch "Phantom of the opera". I have seen the show 232 time but this one was going to be something to remember as tonight a brand new Phantom would be donning the famous mask. I managed to get an amazing seat in the stalls and as soon as that overture hit I was immediately drawn into one of London's greatest love story and one if the most epic musicals in the West End. From my seat you could see all the facial expressions and Ben Forster managed to break my heart with a truly emotional final lair. This seat really did make you feel you was part of the show and all the beautiful costumes looked so gorgeous close up. An amazing show and I would totally sit in that seat again! It made you feel like you was part of the show. Luring you in to the epic story of the Paris opera house!

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.

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.
Suitable For
Phantom is a must see for any musicals fan. If you like your musicals with added 80’s flair then this is definitely the show for you. The show contains some scenes that younger audience members may find scary and is therefore recommended for ages 10+.
