I have seen this production twice and both times enjoyed it, the first time I saw it I was in the stalls at the back and missed a lot of the action as there are a couple of scenes that are up high, the second time I went I made sure that I was in the second row (b) and in the centre in the Royal Circle, and wow what a fantastic play, people in the back of the stalls missed the phantom running around the top of the theatre, in the Royal circle you saw ALL the action. I took my 15 yr old daughter, what a brilliant way to be introduced to the arts, she loved it, but I dont think younger children would enjoy it as there are a few scenes that are rather frightening, if you decide to see Phantom of the Opera make sure that you get the best seats ( front stalls and first 3 rows in the royal circle) check for the best seats, dont go for the cheap ones as you will miss loads, the bar in the theatre is extremely expensive and so are the sweets and ice creams.

We saw Phantom Oct 31 and thought it was fantastic, even after all these years. Ramin Karimloo was outstanding as the Phantom and Robyn North as Christine was just brilliant. This was the first time I've seen the show but would happily see it again!

I am a regular theatre attender but I have never see anything as magical and breathtaking as Phantom, the tickets were a present and I was sat in the third row of the Royal circle which must of been the best seats in the house, the view was simply amazing. when the phantom was singing from the top of the opera house, he was directly in front of me and i had goose bumps, it felt as though he was singing to me. the staging costumes and whole performance were simply fantastic, i cant wait to see it again

What can i say, the longest-running show on broadway in history? It is absolutely fantastic. The beautiful music, haunting lyrics, fabulous setting and brilliant acting by the cast,all make the musical such a huge success. It certainly lives up to its name. The melodies are memorable and nice. Phantom never dies, hope it continues its playing around the world.

We are regular theatre goers but had never before got to see "Phantom", we were not disappointed. Absolutely fantastic, spellbinding. All of the current cast were amazing and the set/costume/music could not be faulted. The only slight disappointment is the general shabbiness of the theatre and the seats/legroom leave alot to be desired. However, we would still go again!! The whole audience gave the cast a standing ovation.

I have seen phantom twice now. I think I could watch it every single day and never get tired of it. Simply beautiful - the best musical there's ever been (or is likley to ever be). If you haven't seen it - why not? Go see it. Even if you have to sell a few things to do it! It'll be worth it!

For the most part the show was very enjoyable and what could be seen was impressive. My regret though was that from Stalls Row R we could only view the lower part of the stage, missing amongst other scenes the spectacular that was the chandelier and the phantom singing suspended on a floating platform, of which we could see the lower part and a pair of white gloves. I can recommend the show but if you want view the whole show and experience the full effect of the illusion only take seats in the stalls if they are from Row J forward. If you go you’ll enjoy the Phantom’s final illusion

What we thought

MAGICAL Beautiful captivating

Phantom today leaves a Titanic sized wake behind it in which the rest wallow for nearly 30 years.

Her Majesty's Theatre London, is where it all began. October 1986 and the curtain went up on the biggest gamble of Lloyd Webber's life.
