 The Phantom of the Opera

Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterwork is a timeless story of seduction and despair. Phantom of the Opera is the musical all others are measured against. The timeless story, the unforgettable score, and an undeniable obsession that could never die.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s enthralling score includes “Think of Me,” “Angel of Music,” “‘Music of the Night,” “All I Ask of You,” “Masquerade” and the title song, "The Phantom of the Opera".

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Charles Hart

Additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe; Book by Richard Stilgoe & Andrew Lloyd Webber; Based on the novel Le Fantome de ‘l’Opéra by Gaston Leroux
