The Phantom of the Opera tickets

A timeless musical masterpiece

Playing for over 30 years, Andrew Lloyd Webber's global smash-hit The Phantom of the Opera has become the second longest-running musical in the West End, and the longest-running show on Broadway. With an iconic score, stunning sets, gorgeous costumes and dazzling special effects, this unmissable production is essential viewing, earning a reputation as one of London's best musicals.

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

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

All visitors to the West End should book The Phantom of the Opera tickets for a truly magical theatrical experience that must be seen to be believed.

Second time this year. Still my favourite. The best singing, acting and orchestration I have seen. You will know the main tunes but the musical has many unexpected and quite brilliant others. Scenery is amazing, so many huge sets, even better with a top down view, where on earth do they hide it. From rooftop, massive stairs to the Phantoms lair, incredable.

I absolutely adore this show! It is a classic and I hope it never shuts down. I just want to see it again and again and again. So beautiful and so moving. I had the understudy Holly on and for me she is just the perfect Christine. I hope next time I see it I get to see her again.

This musical is a true feast for the eyes and ears. From the moment that the auctioneer describes the history of The Chandelier (Lot 666), it raises above the audience, while the stage transforms into The Paris Opera House to the dramatic notes of the opening overture, the apéritif has been served. The set designs are a pure, masterful powerhouse; from the stage of the opera house, to the heights of its roof, to the depths of the catacombs where The Phantom’s lair is found. Each of the scene’s transformations are so mesmerising that it’s not only Christine Daaé who is caught in a trance throughout the show. Revenge may be a dish served cold, but the timeless soundtrack (a filling musical meat feast from the entire cast and orchestra) with the impressive E6 note from Christine in the title track can be served any time, any place, anywhere but is at its absolute best at volume. This show, in a nutshell, is sheer brilliance, and comes as no surprise that it hits its 37th year in the West End next month. I can easily see myself going to this show time and again.

The best way to get cheap Phantom of the Opera tickets is to book at least six weeks ahead for best availability and check the view from your seat with SeatPlan. If you can book for a midweek performance, tickets are as much as 20% cheaper than at the weekend.

Restricted view seats at the rear of the Stalls are much cheaper than others in the section, however pillars and the overhang affected views of the stage. It is worth looking at the view from seats in the same price bands in the Royal Circle and Grand Circle to get better value for your money. Grand Circle D15 and B12 , which one reviewer notes has “a great view of the chandelier scene” are good cheaper options despite being further from the stage.
