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.

The phantom of the opera is one of my favourite and was a must for us to do on our trip to London, from the moment the singing began I had chills which lasted for most of the night, the songs were performed wonderfully and the overall performance was great!

I've seen the show many times now and enjoy it just as much each time. There's something for everyone, from the operatic singing, the duets between Christine and the phantom and the eerie atmosphere created by the phantom. The sets are wonderful, especially my favourite the masquerade scene. I'd be surprised to find anyone who doesn't enjoy it.

We booked the tickets in the royal circle in advance and I would say from all the seats you have an excellent view even if you choose not the most expensive tickets. There is also an intimate bar on the royal circle and easy to grap a drink during the break. The performance and music is outstanding. Ben Forster is... More

Attended the matinee performance of Phantom of the Opera on Thursday 16th February 2017, after being given a ticket as a gift. Without a doubt it's the best London show I have seen. Wonderful music, fabulous singing voices, great cast. I could go on and on but I could be here for a while! If you get the chance to... More

We loved the PotO in London. The singing and theatrics were superb making it a very enjoyable show. The theater is small and intimate, so book tickets early so you don't end up with restricted view seats (like we had).

Really good performance on the Thursday night. The stage was great and the seats (royal circle) were worth the money. Make sure you get a central seat or check seat planning websites before as they can help you decide. The act itself is really good and a lengthy 2hours.

Stunning and fascinating visual effects. The new actor as Phantom did a great job, as well as Christine. The only drawback is that the seats in the theater are too old and small. If you did not choose the right seat, you might have to sit with an anterior tilt position to have a better view.

This was my 11th time seeing this show and I still feel just as mesmerised as the first time I saw it in 1997. The hauntingly beautiful music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the emotional lyrics, the spectacular singing with a climatic ending. My favourite show of all time.

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.
