Phantom Of The Opera

Her Majesty's London

Her Majesty's Theatre in London is the current venue for Phantom Of The Opera.

The Phantom of The Opera, Andrew Lloyd-Webber's blockbuster musical at Her Majesty's Theatre in London is based on Gaston Lerouxs gothic novel, is a haunting story of both seduction and despair.

Phantom of the Opera musical is set in the 19th century in the Paris Opera House, where the Phantom both haunts and terrorizes the occupants of the theatre. Based on a classic French thriller about a terrifying, facially disfigured and legendary figure who emerges from the depths of The Opera House and manifests the mythic opera ghost in terrifying reality.

The mysterious and masked Phantom then  falls in love with the young and beautiful singer Christine and whisks her down to his subterranean lair below the theatre to teach her to sing "like an angel". Although she is initially entranced by him, she loves another: Raoul, a nobleman and patron of the Opera. Christine is faced with a stark choice: stay with the Phantom forever, or he will kill Raoul.

The Phantom of the Opera is a west end musical phenomenon and one of the most successful stage shows of all time breaking box offices records around the world since opening in London in 1986 and around 99% of tickets have been bought for every single London performance at Her Majesty's Theatre.


The original London cast recording of the Phantom Of The Opera featuring Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman was the first in musical history to go straight into the UK charts at number one and remains to this day the biggest selling stage show musical cast recording of all time.


The Phantom's success in both London and Broadway as well as twenty other countries around the world has made it the highest grossing entertainment event of all time, having been seen by over 80 million people with global box office takings of almost £2 billion.
