A mysterious being, known only as the opera ghost lives in the sewers beneath the Opera. He terrorizes the cast and crew of the Opera but falls in love with Daaé. He starts training her to become a better singer. However, Christine does not harbour the same love toward the opera ghost, instead falling in love with her childhood friend, Raoul.

Reviews

“The music is soaring and operatic. The characters are archetypes in a way that speaks to the timelessness of mythology. For example, the Phantom is flesh and blood and also “there, inside your mind”. He is the angel of music, but he looks like the devil.”
– The Guardian

“The Phantom Of The Opera continues to play to packed houses and, in every way, is an example, perhaps a high water mark, of magical theatre of the ornate, musical kind. Harold Prince’s direction is as effective, sharp and detailed as ever.”
– British Theatre
