Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical masterpiece is based on Gaston Leroux's gothic novel of life beneath the stage of the Paris Opera House where The Phantom reigns. Hideously deformed, he passes his time terrorizing the members of the Opera until he falls in love with Christine Daae, a chorus girl who he teaches to sing the 'Music of the Night'.

Christine, believing the phantom to be the 'Angel of Music' sent by her dead father, is transformed to sing centre stage after Senora Carlotta refuses to perform. She is a sensation and the audience want more, but the new owners of the Paris Opera House insist that Carlotta returns to the lead role, enraging the Phantom with deadly consequences. In the midst of this turmoil Christine's moment in the spotlight reunites her with Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny, a childhood friend, and they fall hopelessly in love the moment he hears her spellbinding voice.

Rejected all his life, The Phantom is a gifted man that uses music as his utlimate emotional expression. He fights for her love after hearing Raoul and Christine express their undying love for each other on the roof of Paris Opera House. The outcome exposes the nature of the masquerade that everyone performs to disguise their inner self, only truly being set free when that mask is dropped.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece has been running on the stage of Her Majesty's Theatre London for over 21 years. It combines a quality of music genius with a strength of storyline and use of breathtaking theatrical effects that have enthralled audiences across generations.
