The Ultimate Story of Love and Betrayal

With a score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and book by Ben Elton, Kamin Karimloo (Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables) stars in this emotionally packed sequel to the universally acclaimed Phantom of the Opera. Tony award winning Glenn Slater (Sister Act, Little Mermaid) takes over lyricist duties in what The Daily Telegraph's Charles Spencer describes as "a constant pleasure, lavishly orchestrated and ranging from deliciously pert vaudeville numbers to those thrillingly romantic love songs."

What's it about?

Set ten years after Phantom of the Opera and relocated to New York's Coney Island, we find that the Phantom has reinvented himself as Mr Y, and runs a circus of curiosities called Phantasma. Still bewitched by Christine (the heroine of the original show) The Phantom invites her to sing at Phantasma as the main attraction. Having no idea that Mr Y is the Phantom she arrives with her husband, Raoul, now gripped by bile and alcohol, along with Gustave, the ten year old son.

It is not long before the Phantom reveals himself to Christine and confesses that his undying love for her is stronger than ever. Christine must face her dilemma and make a choice, Raoul or the Phantom.

The stakes are upped when The Phantom hears Gustave sing and is left certain that he is the boy's father. Raoul discovers Mr Y's true identity and the two confront each other, culminating with the two men making a bet. If Christine sings on the last night of the season, she will belong to The Phantom, if not, she will be Raoul's. But there is another alternative that neither men bargained for.
