Owner description: Far beneath the majesty and splendor 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 protegee Christine Daae is so strong that even her heart cannot resist. 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. Now in its 26th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End, after more than 10,000 performances. Andrew Lloyd Webber's mesmerizing score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.

What can I say? We have been to see quite a few musicals and this one was the best one up to now, the decor and performers were simply amazing.

“Enjoyable, but lacking "wow" factor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Took a school group to see Phantom of the Opera on a school trip to London. The cast was excellent, and performance was well done - but overall I found it fell just a hair flat of expectation. However, seeing this show, in this city, in this theatre was well worth it. The vocalists are very talented. I just didn't feel like they were connected emotionally, so I didn't "buy in" as much as I thought I would. But it easily could have just been an off night for me or the cast.

My students liked it, but struggled to stay awake, and then once seeing Wicked a week later, shrugged when thinking back to their Phantom experience. If going with teens, I wouldn't necessarily make this your first choice.

“My favourite musical didn't disappoint.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

Managed to secure one of the last tickets for the show the night I saw it, seated up in the nose bleed section of the theatre. No big deal, as I had a brilliant view of the stage. Cast & music were both excellent. You won't be disappointed!

“incredible, amazing art work !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014

The Phantom of the Opera in Her Majesty's Theatre is an amazing art work! Her Majesty's Theatre demonstrates itself as a sacred space in which human (artist's ) potential is totally stimulated and developed.

Geromino Rauch was in a role of phantom, who successfully interpreted the role of phantom with a balance of sadness, anger and resentment. Besides, his voice was impressive.
Olivia Brereton was in a role of Christian who gave a fantastic feeling of showing a younger and more innocent Christian.

The whole show gives a new vision with bringing infinity, multiple dimensions, below and above as well as delicate human emotion and psyche. Very impressive and unforgettable experience watching The Phantom of Opera in Her Majesty's Theatre.

it's worthy to purchase the high-priced ticket!
ps. My ticket is Stall area, seat 15, it took about 78 pounds including box collection fee.
