Boasting an incredible cast of performers, audiences find themselves consistently drawn to the show time and time again, with a new generation of theatre lovers discovering the musical for the very first time.

As he teaches her singing, becoming her 'angel of music', she finds herself drawn to his charm and mystery, unable to resist his talents as a composer. The Phantom haunts the opera house, making demands of its new owners in an attempt to get Christine to star in a new opera that he has written especially for her. The handsome Raoul is also in love with Christine and challenges The Phantom for her affections, leading to an onstage disaster that literally brings down the house.

Our The Phantom of the Opera Review

Stop a person on the street and ask them to name a West End musical, they’ll probably say one of two things: Les Mis, or The Phantom of the Opera. The latter has been impressively running non-stop at Her Majesty’s Theatre for over 3 decades now, but does Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical still have the same sense of wonder as it did all that time ago.  

NOTE: There have been many cast changes since these reviews
