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.

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

I've seen the Phantom this October and it was a longtime wish that came truth. It was the most outstanding experience. Really, really, really great. I recommend it to everyone. If I get back to London, I will certainly see it again.

A few years back,my wife talked me into watching the film Phantom of the opera!I wasn't a musical fan,but watched it-it blew me away so much that i bought the film on dvd and the cd for the car.i also made it my wish to take my wife to see the real thing at her majesty's theatre London.As the kids would say OMG(Oh my god)for the older folk.MASTERPIECE is an understatment!You could mark this out of a million and it would still get a million!It really was faultless,The performance,the scenery and so on.The flim was good but the theatre was out of this world and will stay with us forever.On that note,I would like to say a massive THANK YOU to all the cast and everyone behind the scenes that make it happen.I would also like to say thank you to Will Barratt(RAOUL)who took time out for a quick chat with us after the show(what a nice guy).please dont miss the performance of a lifetime-you must see it for yourself!Thanks again for making our day to all from Chris and Julie Treanor

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.

Yesterday, I watched the piece and I went completely speechless when it ended. I didn't know what to say. It was so amazing! Wonderful! Splendid!Any of these words wasn't suitable enough to express what I felt. I've read the book first, then watched some film versions of the Phantom. The book was fantastic and I recommend it to everyone.It's strange,but I didn't like the film, the 2004 version, despite of the fact that the plot is the same as in the piece. In the piece the actors/singers acted so great...but as far as the film is concerned, I had a feeling that Christine and Phantom don't suit to their roles. Those from the piece were abso-freakin'-lutely good!I love the Phantom's voice.And what is more, he was frightening, in spite of the Phantom from the film. I had goose pimples and tears in my eyes, during the piece. I would watch it again and again...

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!

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.
