The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera Tickets

The Phantom of the Opera will return to the Majestic Theatre from Oct. 22, 2021. More information can be found here. 

The Phantom of the Opera continues to entice crowds with “The Music of the Night” at the Majestic Theatre. It's considered the most iconic piece of work from composer Andrew Lloyd Webber, with Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe also creating the musical.

The Phantom of the Opera tells of the treacherous love triangle as the Phantom and childhood sweetheart Raoul lock horns and battle for the affections of rising star of the Paris Opera - Christine Daaé. First seen in London, Phantom won seven Tonys in 1988 including best musical.

The production boasts a plethora of iconic images and instances, topped off by the infamous crashing chandelier from the roof of the auditorium. There's also the splendorous dance sequence “Masquerade”, as well as the descension into the Phantom’s underground lair during the title song, and the romantic, rooftop ballad of “All I Ask of You” have all become synonymous with the standard-bearers of musical theatre. 

Casting for Phantom's return is to be confirmed. The previous cast starred Ben Crawford (as The Phantom), Meghan Picerno (as Christine Daaé), John Riddle (as Raoul), Bradley Dean (as Monsieur André), Craig Bennett (as Monsieur Firmin), Raquel Suarez Groen (as Carlotta), Maree Johnson (as Madme Giry), Carlton Moe (as Piangi), Kelsey Connolly (as Meg Giry), and Eryn LeCroy (as alternate Christine Daaé)

A film adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera was released in December 2004, starring Gerard Butler in the title role. But, the original musical is a Broadway must-see. Will you visit the angel of music?

Of course, we're referring to The Phantom - the crown jewel of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical canon.
