    The Phantom of The Opera is a classic, must-see piece of theatre. The cast, set design and orchestration together is simply outstanding - there's no wonder why it has stayed in the West End for 30 years. The staging is exciting with huge moving set pieces and special effects that enhance every scene, plus the orchestra play ALW's famous score beautifully (I almost cried just hearing the overture!) I am so happy that I got to see the 2016/17 cast before their run finishes in September. Celinde Schoenmaker is magnificent in the role of Christine, and we are beyond lucky to have her in London ! I managed to book this ticket only the day before on the off chance that I would be passing through London that day and couldn't pass up an opportunity to see such a classic show.
    With Row A being directly behind the security rail, the front of stage is obscured slightly if you are sitting with your back to the seat (maybe not if you are taller). I chose to lean forwards to look over the rail and then had a perfect, complete view of the whole stage. Leg room was not an issue for me. When seeing Phantom I would definitely recommend sitting higher up than the Stalls as you get a magnificent view of all the special effects and set design!

    This show is phenomenal, the current cast (who are changing on September 2nd) are absolutely amazing and I will be sad to see them go but I'm sure the new cast will be just as good. Set and costume design on this show is impeccable. Absolutely beautiful show all round!
    All of the stage was visible, but the top of the set is significantly cut off by the Grand Circle overhang. We had to lean down quite a few times to be able to see what was happening at the back of the stage e.g. when the Phantom takes Christine to his lair, etc. We also couldn't see any of the Phantom when he is at the top of the theatre, or the chandelier once it was hoisted up. The view from these seats is good but personally I think the price they charge for them is a lot considering you have a better view from Grand Circle restricted view seats.

    Been wanting to see this show for years, so was so happy that I finally got round to seeing it. Amazing classic show.
    Excellent central seat in the front row of the Grand Circle. Seat was comfortable with just enough legroom (but not enough that you could move around due to being in the front row). Please note there is no handrail leading down to seat is care is needed to get down to seat. There is a bar going across this row (which I was aware off), once seated I found that I could not see over the bar (I am young but I am fairly tall), however I placed my hoody on my seat to give me a little bit of a boost which work and I was now able to see over the bar (so I would recommend this row for tall people). View was excellent with clear view of the stage and of facial expressions (you need to lean forward for a small moment in the 2nd half when one of the actors is in the orchestra pit, but this was not a major problem). Would recommend this level as well, as you also get clear views when the Phantom is walking along the top and of the famous chandelier scene, which you may not get from other floors. Seat was well worth the price paid, would happily sit in this seat again. Very friendly staff (was talking to one of the staff while I was waiting outside for the doors to open). I had a large shopping bag with me (as I didn't have time to drop off at my hotel), however the friendly staff directed me downstairs to the cloakroom where I paid £1 to store my bag. Lovely theatre.

    My first ever West End production, so my partner and I decided to get 'the best seats in the house' (Royal Circle row A 17/18). Wasn't disappointed at all. Spectacular show, fantastic singing/dancing/acting from the whole cast. Amazing orchestra. I was mesmerized from start to finish. A huge thanks to ALL the cast, the amazing Orchestra, the behind the scenes crew, Ushers and anyone else I have not mentioned for a truly fantastic night, which I will never forget!
    5'9" male, small build. Fantastic view of the whole stage. Seats were comfortable enough, although was nice to stretch legs during the interval. I would definitely sit here again, if I could. There was only one brief moment where I had to lean forward to see what was happening in front of the orchestra pit.

The best tickets can be found in the central Stalls for the best view of the famous falling chandelier.

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!
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 tickets are recommended for ages 10+.

Age Recommendations: Recommended for children 10+
