Phantom of the Opera

Phantom of the Opera - Build your break

About the show

A gothic interpretation of Gaston Leroux’s 1911 novel, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s magnum opus is visually stunning, audibly delightful and unstoppably thrilling. Set in a late 19th century Parisian opera house, the tale follows the talented and beautiful soprano, Christine Daaé as she is unexpectedly thrust into the spotlight. 

The phantom himself is shrouded in mystery and intrigue, which only begins to unravel when he takes an interest in Christine as she becomes the opera house's biggest star.
