Show synopsis:

The Phantom of The Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.

The smash-hit musical is the only show in history to have celebrated 30 years on stage on both side of the Atlantic. In addition to London and New York, the show is currently playing in Prague and Sao Paulo, as well as on tour in the US and Asia.

Further dates, venues and casting for the tour will be announced in due course.

The Phantom of the Opera is booking until 4 April 2020 at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London.
