ABOUT The Phantom of the Opera
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera continues to delight audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London.
One of the most famous and successful musicals of all time, The Phantom of the Opera is a jaw-dropping spectacle featuring a beautiful score, extraordinary scenery and effects and a timeless tragic love story.

The Phantom of the Opera is booking until 17 October 2020 at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London.
Beneath the beauty of the Paris Opera House lurks a mysterious masked figure. A genius recluse, the Phantom falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star.
When a handsome young suitor from Christine’s past enters the picture and threatens to steal her away from him. Is his love enough to forgive the unthinkable acts he has committed? Will Christine be able to resist her ‘Angel of music’?
