    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!

    Wasn't that bothered about seeing the show but was talked into going and was so glad that I was persuaded. The show was excellent and I would have no hesitation in seeing it again and recommending it to anyone who has the chance to see it.

    Seats and legroom are both comfortable and the view of the show is first class from these seats.

    This was my fourth time seeing this show so of course it gets 5 stars! Performances were great all round as per usual. I will probably go see it again at some stage!!!

    Legroom and comfort was good for London theatres. A bit cramped but not as bad as some which I why I gave it 5 stars. The rake is not so good here so despite paying for premium tickets there were a couple of lovely heads right in front of me and I had to crane frequently from side to side to see the action. The offending heads belonged to ladies who were not that tall either.

    This evening marked the 30th anniversary of this classic musical, so safe to say this performance deserved 5 stars. The Phantom is a classic story, which might feel a bit outdated at some points, but the phenomenal score and BRILLIANT cast will make sure you leave the theatre floating on air. It's a classic not to be missed by anyone who likes theatre.

    As there's an overhang from the dress circle, you will miss out the top of the set. If it's a first visit to Phantom I would recommend different seats further front in the stalls, or somewhere in the circle/balcony. However if you don't care missing out some bits (It's not too much you'll miss, but still) this are actually quite good seats, I myself was really surprised about. You still have a good overview, and even in the back of the stalls we were able to see the actor's faces clear. Also there's quite a bit of legroom and the seat was comfortable, which is not guaranteed in this theatre. Another bonus; as this is the last row of the stalls you can ask for a booster (normally only given to kids) to make sure you overlook the audience in front of you for a better view.

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+.
