The Phantom of the Opera is Andrew Lloyd Webber's best-loved musical, and has been running in London for an incredible 32 years.

It tells the story of a horribly scarred composer living a shadowy existence beneath the Paris Opera House, who hides himself away so nobody can see his ugly appearance. But then he falls for the beautiful opera singer Christine, and dares to venture upstairs to see her.

But Christine 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 — at one point the Phantom boats across an underground lake with glowing candles rising up out of the smoke... and if you don't already know what happens to the chandelier then we won't spoil the surprise!

Daily Telegraph – "Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical spectacular a piece of true theatre as has been seen in years" Sunday Express – "Magic, memorable and so spectacular" Daily Mail – "It's fantastic, fabulous and phantasmagorical!"


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!)”

> Craig’s review of this event – “Believe it or not, the Phantom of the Opera was my first ever musical (unless you count Worzel Gummidge at Wimbledon Theatre when I was a kid) and it was pretty good. I'd never heard of any of the cast though. It was some guy called Marcus Lovett and Sofia Escobar in the lead roles, with Simon Thomas and a pretty blonde bird in the others. But don't ask me who was who… continued”
