The Origin of the Musical
Andrew Lloyd Webber was heavily inspired by The Phantom of the Opera, Gaston Leroux’s classic novel, and in 1984, he began to work on this story filled with suspense and mystery. The original material provided him with the substance he needed. As the musical was being written, several lyricists worked on it and the story went through many iterations before turning into the classic everyone loves.
In October 1986, The Phantom of the Opera was launched at Her Majesty’s Theatre, where the lead roles were played by Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman. Since then, the world has seen dozens of productions. More than three decades later and breaking records, the show still captivates audiences everywhere. It is time for the people of the West End to be part of this musical extravaganza. Whether you have seen it before or are just getting introduced to it, the musical will give you a theatrical experience you will forever remember.

“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.”
