The Show

Phantom of the Opera is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe, with lyrics by Charles Hart, and it is based on the French book ‘La Fantôme de l’Opéra’ by Gaston Leroux.

The show opened in the West End in 1986 and on Broadway in 1988.  Phantom of the Opera is Broadway’s longest running musical and the West End’s second longest running musical (second to Les Misérables).

The musical revolves around a love triangle between budding, young soprano, Christine Daae and her two suitors: her ghostly teacher, The Phantom, and her childhood friend who is now a wealthy gentleman, Raoul.

Went to see Josh Piterman as The Phantom on Feb 14th 2020. I have been four times already but this was undoubtedly the best performance I have seen. So enthralling I have booked to go again this coming week in the stalls. Josh was outstanding and really created a wonderful phantom. The best show to grace the West End. Long may it continue to delight and enchant. I can not wait.
