Far beneath the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protegee Christine Daae is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

The musical opened at Her Majesty's Theatre on 9 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 26th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End, after more than 10,000 performances.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's mesmerizing score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night.

Wonderful show last night. My 3rd time of seeing it and although it's not as good as Lee Mis it's nearly there.

Even after 30 years on stage the Opera is still surprising the public with the cast and great music. Worthy.

Seen phantom a number of times and it never fails to please. Great production and brilliant performances. The young actress playing Christine was great and so was the phantom. Good support cast as well. Overall well worth seeing if you never have as the first time you see it, it will make you stare in wonder.

First opera show and found it very entertaining. Fantastic singers . Only complaint was the seats are so close with no leg room at all , but the show takes your mind off the cramped space!

Have wanted to watch this since it opened 30 years ago, on a trip to London for our 10th wedding anniversary my wife surprised me with tickets to the Saturday matinee. Loved it, bar was expensive (£14 for a glass of Wine) so didn't bother with that. Show itself was incredible and very emotional and would love to see it... More

The show is definitely worth seeing but I found it a little dull and predictable. The leading actress (matinee on a Saturday in November) was fantastic, what an excellent singer. Les Mis is just my ultimate favourite and phantom didn't blow me away. Definitely worth going though.

It won't disappoint you and every second of each performance of each actor/actress connected with this play is laudable, applaudable and worth a standing ovation from the audience! I dare you not to cry at the finale!!This is one show that will stay forever and make sure you catch this West End's production for it's just never the same when... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
