The Phantom of the Opera musical was inspired by a French novel written by Gaston Leroux. Far beneath the majesty and splendour 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 protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
The stage musical is one of the most successful pieces of entertainment of all time. It has been played to over 140 million people in 35 countries in 166 cities around the world, grossing an estimated $6 billion. It opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London in 1986. Now in its 31st year, and having won 70 major theatre awards, The Phantom of the Opera continues to mesmerise audiences at the very same theatre in the West End.
