What’s The Phantom of the Opera about?
Hidden away in a lair beneath the 19th century Paris opera house, the brooding Phantom of the Opera conceals his disfigured face from the world. On stage in the world above, Carlotta, the Opéra’s resident Diva, is rehearsing for a production of Hannibal…but unbeknown to Carlotta, the Phantom has been tutoring Christine Daaé, a chorus girl. When Carlotta’s prima-donna demands become too much to bear, Christine is pushed forward. Her voice is mesmerising. Furious, Carlotta storms off, leaving the chorus girl to save the production.
In the audience is Raoul, Viscount de Chagny, who recognises his childhood friend Christine, and the two begin a passionate affair. However, Christine has also captured the heart of the mysterious Phantom of the Opera. As the show progresses, Christine is torn between her love for music, embodied by the Phantom, and her love for childhood sweetheart Raoul.
Christine’s descent into the Phantom’s lair is one of the most iconic scenes in the history of musical theatre – and one of the most beautiful. This gothic setting of candles and swirling mist upon a vast subterranean lake is worth the price of a ticket alone.
As the story unfolds, opera, murder and mystery, magic and intrigue weave together in an epic finale to one of the greatest ever love stories told on the West End Stage.
The Phantom of the Opera is a musical with music by Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Charles Hart and a book by Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe. The Phantom of the Opera is a tale of the supernatural, love, revenge and the power that music holds over our hearts. It speaks to the ability of music to transcend physical boundaries and reminds us that we all deserve to be loved, no matter who we are.

Five Things You Might not know about The Phantom of the Opera
We adore The Phantom of the Opera, so we wondered what gems we could unearth about this much-loved West End favourite? Here are five fun facts we’ve uncovered about the West-End’s most romantic musical:
1. Phantom of the Opera fans have their own special name – ‘PHANS’. ‘Phans’ have several dedicated facebook groups – if you love the show, just type in ‘Phantom Phan’ and you’ll see that the most popular group already has over four thousand members.
2. Ex-Phantom alumni have gone on to diverse careers both in and out of the world of Entertainment. The original Monsieur Firmin is none other than John Savident, who famously starred as Fred Elliot in Coronation Street from 1994-2006. Mary Millar, who originated the role of Madame Giry on stage, later played Rose in series 5 of Keeping Up Appearances. Sarah Brightman, who originated the role of Christine Daaé, went on to become one of the world’s highest paid classical music stars before training to become an astronaut, although in the end the trip was postponed due to family reasons.
3. During the first Covid-19 lockdown, the hearts of many London Phans were broken when images emerged online of the famous chandelier being removed from Her Majesty’s theatre. Fortunately, its removal was only temporary while the theatre was refurbished, and changes made to the production ready for Phantom’s return.
4. Eagle-eyed viewers of the 2004 movie version of The Phantom of the Opera may briefly spot Ramin Karimloo playing Christine’s father. That’s remarkable, because he’s also played Raoul and The Phantom of the Opera on stage – making him the only actor to have played all three roles, including in the stage version of Phantom sequel, Love Never Dies.
5. The Phantom mask is custom made for each actor – no two Phantoms are ever the same!
