The Phantom of the Opera

It is 1911 and the contents of the Paris Opera House are being auctioned off. Present are the auctioneer, porters and bidders. Raoul, now seventy years old and in a wheelchair, buys a poster and a music box. As the auctioneer displays the Opera House chandelier, he explains that it is connected with the legend of The Phantom of the Opera. With a flash of light, the audience is flung back in time, when the Paris Opera was at its height.

The winner of seven 1988 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has been seen by over 140 million people in 144 cities in 27 countries.

REVIEWS:

"A gorgeous operatic extravaganza that is a thrill to the blood and a sensual feast for the eye."

Richard Barkley, Sunday Express

"A gorgeous operatic extravaganza that is a thrill to the blood and a sensual feast for the eye."

Richard Barkley, Sunday Express

"It's a major achievement in the musical theater and a high water mark in the phenomenal Lloyd Webber career. The bonus this time is that the glittering technical wizardry and pop-opera music have been wedded to a strong story and characters. gloriously old fashioned romantic musical spectacle."

Richard Hummler, Variety

"soaring ballads and sensational stage effects. ... this is as spectacular a piece of true theatre as London has seen in years."

John Barber, Daily Telegraph

"Four words sum up the unstoppable success of Andrew Lloyd Webber's triumphant re-working of this vintage spine-tingling melodrama. Stars, spectacle, score and story. ... Together they add up to that old magic ingredient: theatricality. There is simply nothing on earth to transport you so quickly or so far into phantasy than a feast of illusions."

Jack Tinker, Daily Mail
