What's The Phantom of the Opera about?

The Phantom of the Opera has been a cult musical in London since its premiere in 1986 at Her Majesty's Theatre. It is based on the eponymous novel by Gaston Leroux.

In Paris, the Palais Garnier is haunted by a ghost. In reality, this "ghost" a disfigured musician who wears a mask and in the basements of the building as a recluse. This man seeks to make his protege, the young dancer Christine Daae, a new diva. He does not hesitate to eliminate the competition by discouraging the Prima Dona Carlotta and blackmailing the new directors of the theatre by threatening to drop the chandelier of the audience. Mad with jealousy when the young woman falls in love with Viscount Raoul de Chagny, the so-called ghost kidnaps Christine and uses her as leverage to have his avant-garde work Don Juan Triomphant performed, then disappears out of love for Christine.

A phenomenal show both musically and visually, complete with outstanding performers! This is as real as it gets.

We were seated up in the balcony where there was very little leg space and obstructed view either due to railing or people in front of you, so that is something to consider when booking tickets.

"The Phantom of the Opera" is an enchanting and mesmerizing play that captivated me from start to finish. The elaborate set designs, stunning costumes, and phenomenal performances brought the timeless story to life in the most breathtaking way. The music, composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, is simply magical and perfectly complements the haunting and romantic narrative. The actors' voices were powerful and emotive, leaving me with goosebumps and a profound sense of awe. The Phantom's character was portrayed with such depth and complexity, making him both mysterious and sympathetic. The chemistry between the cast members was palpable, adding another layer of intensity to the already enthralling plot. Overall, "The Phantom of the Opera" is a theatrical masterpiece that exceeded all my expectations and left me with an unforgettable experience that will stay with me for years to come.

I had not seen the Phantom since I was a child, but as the show went on I recalled fond memories of the opera! The actors are incredible and their singing is immaculate! The stage production from transitions to lighting and pyrotechnics made the show unforgettable! For anyone traveling to or through London, I recommend watching this show!

We had already seen this famous musical in New York. It's even better in London. The theatre is incredible, and the set is beautiful, particularly the catacombs with the depth creating exceptional staging. The chandelier falling is also impressive. This musical is performed to perfection and the orchestra are so talented: a real delight for both the eyes and the ears!

Great! Superb music, magnificent sets and a top-notch orchestra! A must see!!! The emotion evoked by the actors gave us chills!!! A less good view of the sides but not too annoying.

Have you seen the film based on this musical? Forget it. On stage, everything is better, more magical, more romantic. You'll be on the opera stage with the troupe; you'll descend into the Phantom's lair; you'll be at the heart of the masked ball, the Masquerade, with shimmering costumes; you'll feel the rush of air as the chandelier falls on you and crashed into pieces. And you'll witness some of the most beautiful emotions that the music, the singing, the sets, the costumes can create first-hand. The essence of musicals. A must see!
