The Phantom Of The Opera

info

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s glittering musical is the most successful of all time with more than 140 million Phantom of the Opera tickets sold worldwide. It has won over 70 major theatre awards. The show consistently receives glowing reviews from audiences and critics alike and has an average 5-star rating based on nearly 2,000 reviews by London Theatre Direct customers.

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, the Phantom hides in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the Phantom seeks to control the Paris Opera House and its players. The Phantom finds a new student in the form of Christine, an orphaned chorus girl and trains her to sing the music of the night. When a face from her past appears the Phantom must discover if the love he holds for his beautiful student is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

In 1984 Andrew Lloyd Webber was looking to pen a major romance and a reading of Gaston Leroux's classic novel of mystery and suspense, The Phantom of the Opera, provided the substance he was looking for. The musical went through many iterations and lyricists before it became the classic we know and love today. The Phantom of the Opera opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. Now in its 33rd record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End.

The Phantom of the Opera story has spawned many retellings including multiple film adaptations. The most recent of which came out in 2004 and starred Scottish actor Gerard Butler.

Musical fans are in for a treat – as The Phantom of The Opera is heading back to Manchester.

The award-winning Andrew Lloyd Webber musical is to play at the Palace Theatre in April and May 2012, as part of its 25th annivesary tour, starring award-winning actor John Owen-Jones as the Phantom.

Theatre staff are bracing themselves for a buyer frenzy when tickets go on sale early next month, as it will be 12 years since the show last played here.

Back in 2000, that production, starring Peter Karrie as the Phantom, played to sell-out crowds during its three month run here.

The new tour is part of a special year of 25th anniversary celebrations for the show planned by West End impresario Cameron Mackintosh, who promises a spectacular new design and staging for the show.

It will be a welcome return for fans of Owen-Jones, as he delighted audiences when last here in Manchester playing Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, winning a prestigious MEN Theatre Award in the process.

He will head to Manchester fresh from playing the role of the Phantom in the West End.

Meanwhile Katie Hall will take the role of Christine in the show, who is bewitched by the Phantom's Music of the Night.

Katie was a boot camp contestant for the BBC1’s search for Nancy in I’d Do Anything and also a final round contender for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s search for the Eurovision entry, Your Country Needs You, also for BBC1.

The show has broken a host of records since it first opened back in 1986 with Michael Crawford in the Phantom role opposite Sarah Brightman as Christine, and regularly tops fan polls of most popular musicals.

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday, November 9, on: 0844 871 3019.

Phantom of the Opera

Musical theatre fans rejoice!  Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical Phantom of the Opera is heading back to Manchester for an epic ten-week run.

The award-winning show, which tells the story of a “phantom” that haunts the Paris Grand Opera House and falls for gifted young soprano Christine, is heading back to the Palace Theatre in Manchester from March 26 to May 30 2020.

In news that sent theatre fans into something of a tizzy this morning, the Palace Theatre revealed that the original production of the musical will be returning in 2020 on their Twitter and Instagram feeds.

It last played in Manchester in 2012 for a sold out run at the Palace, winning rave reviews in the process.
