"The Phantom of the Opera" is Andrew Lloyd Webber's finest musical, and has been running in London for an incredible 28 years.

It tells the story of a horribly scarred composer who lives a shadowy existence below the Paris Opera House, hiding himself away so no can see his appearance. But then he falls for the beautiful opera singer upstairs, and ventures out in a white mask to see her.

But she is already promised to another, and the Phantom begins a campaign of terror to win her heart.

Craig has been to see the "The Phantom of the Opera" himself, and ranks it right up there with the best West End shows he's seen (read his review). Andrew Lloyd Webber put some of his most memorable tunes into this show, but what makes it great is the set. Some of them are absolutely fantastic -- they show them boating across an underground lake with glowing candles rising up out of the smoke. And if you don't already know already about the chandelier then I won't spoil the surprise!

Talk about The Phantom of the Opera is here!

pwyn – “After watching the movie a couple of times and enjoying it, I decided to go and see the stage version. Even though I dont think the leads were as good as the film version (which is to be expected, I suppose), the stage version was easily the most enjoyable. Why? I think it has something to do with sitting in the darkened theatre with those fabulous sets and the actors right in front of you. It just makes you feel so much more involved in the story and the songs are much more powerful. There are also lots of little touches that are a real joy when done in a theatre, and just cant be reproduced in a movie (if you haven't seen the "chandeleir" bit yet, then i won't spoil it!)”
