This new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera” is presented by Cameron Mackintosh, The Really Useful Group, and NETworks Presentations.

Based on the classic novel “Le Fantôme de L’Opéra” by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
Cameron Mackintosh’s original production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera continues performances at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London, in its record-breaking run at the Majestic Theatre on Broadway, and many other cities around the world.
