The Phantom Of The OperaDuration 2h30

Her Majesty's Theatre, Haymarket, London, United Kingdom SW1Y 4QL

The West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical The Phantom Of The Opera, at the Her Majesty’s Theatre, is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage of the Paris Opera House.

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.

Ben Forster continues his run as ‘The Phantom’ until Saturday 2 September, with the show also starring Celinde Schoenmaker as ‘Christine Daae’ and Nadim Naaman as ‘Raoul’.

The musical opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles, and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. 

The show has won over 50 major theatre awards, including three Olivier Awards in the West End and seven Tonys on Broadway. It was the winner of the Olivier Audience Award, voted by the public, in the 2016 Laurence Olivier Awards.

The Phantom Of The Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 12,000 performances, and having become the first stage production to reach worldwide grosses of $6 billion. Worldwide, a staggering 140 million people have seen The Phantom Of The Opera in 35 countries and 160 cities in 15 languages.

The Phantom Of The Opera is currently showing in London, New York, Budapest, Stockholm and on tour in the US.
