Phantom of the Opera
It’s been almost 40 years since the love story The Phantom of the Opera first opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in the West End.
It has won over 70 awards and continues to receive rave reviews from audiences and critics alike.
Phantom of the Opera is based on the novel by Gaston Leroux.
A tragic love story with a stirring and uplifting score by Andrew Lloyd Webber, composer of musical theatre for over a decade in the West End and on Broadway.
Including All I Ask of You, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, Music of the Night and more. The vocal performances are extremely impressive throughout.
Here is a taste of the amazing vocals in the song ‘Think of Me’:

It is currently playing at the West End’s His Majesty’s Theatre, in the City of Westminster, central London.
It runs every night except Sundays, with matinee performances on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 2.30pm.

It is best to do a price comparison between the different sites, as prices change.
The websites will tell you exactly where the seat is and it’s price, as prices vary.
Seats marked with a semicircle mean they have a limited view of the stage.
The Stalls is the lower level closest to the stage and is usually recommended, apart from seats at a distance.
The Royal Circus is the second level and the first 5 rows offer a good view of the stage.
The Grand Circle is the third level and the Balcony is the fourth level – we do not recommend either as they are quite far from the stage and very high.
The chairs at the top of the balcony are not recommended, even in the first row.
Warning: Recommended for ages 10+. Under 4s are NOT allowed.
The musical runs for 2 hours 30 minutes including one intermission.
