About the Show
The Phantom of the Operais based upon a French novel of the same name by Gaston Leroux and tells the story of a beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé, who becomes the muse and the obsession of a mysterious, disfigured musical genius who lives in a secret labyrinth beneath the Paris Opéra House.
The musical was a huge success when it opened in London’s West End in 1986, and then on Broadway in 1988. It won the 1986 Olivier Award and the 1988 Tony Award for Best Musical, and Michael Crawford (in the title role) won the Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Actor in a Musical.
Phantom is the second longest-running musical in the West End, after Les Misérables, and the longest running show in Broadway history by a wide margin, celebrating its 10,000th Broadway performance on 11 February 2012, the first production ever to do so.
Phantom is the latest production to be screened for free as part of the initiative to make shows from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s back catalogue available online while theatres in London and around the world are closed due to the Coronavirus. The broadcast will be of a special version of the show recorded for its 25th anniversary at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011, starring Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine. This unique staging of the show featured a cast and orchestra of over 200 performers, and a number of special guest appearances
