This show is amazing! It has always been my favourite show, theres so much emotion and passion and the scene changes are so impressive! If youve never watched the theatre production but you've watched the film you will probably think...theres no way they can do that on a stage, but they do! and its amazing! I loved it so much!

OMG - please, don't miss this show. I took my wife for a surprise weekend to see this, and if you enjoy the film... this will blow your socks off! The voices are incredible, the passion tangible, and the sets phenomenal. It's a treat that earned (quite rightly) a standing ovation. Treat yourselves - you'll love it!

Saw this show for the 4th time on Saturday (12th of november), and what can i say it just gets better and better, my girlfriend has become a huge fan of this show thanks to me and it was her 2nd time seeing it and it won't be our last, the cast was amazing and John Owen-Jones as The Phantom, he has so much emotion and passion you really feel sorry for the phantom by the end of it the final song at the end had me welling up, i would highly recommend seeing this show, no wonder it has been going for 25 years its simply amazing full stop.

Now the longest running show in the history of Her Majesty's Theatre, Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom Of The Opera" opened to enormous success in October 1986 and has been running to capacity ever since, can this musical still deliver? The answer is a resounding YES! John Owen-Jones the actor who currently plays the role of The Phantom gives a truly wonderful, moving and not to be missed performance! I have see the production 13 times and it never disappoints! Buy your tickets NOW! Here's to the next 25 years!

5.0 star rating Christine from United kingdom


I am totally addicted and spellbound by this musical.andrews best production. I was disappointed that the sequel love never dies did not do well here, I saw it twice and loved it but I think the adelphi was the wrong theatre and I have since bought the DVD of the Australian show and wow! Please bring it back to the west end but try another venue and lets include the changes that occurred in the Aussie product.

I have seen the show 3 times now and each time the role of the Phantom was played with such intensity and emotion that you could not help but be pulled into the storyline. Ramin Karimloo was absolutely excellent. I thought that the part of Christine, played by Katie Hall was good, however I thought that her voice did not have the maturity to always deliver the demanding vocals that is required of this role. However the show was excellent and I will definitely see the show again. I look forward to hearing the fantastic music of Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber the next time. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

....I find it impossible to find words to describe how I felt during the performance of Phantom of the Opera. I was so moved by the whole experience I just wanted to stay in my seat and watch the whole thing all over again and again and again.... Truly magical.....hope I get the opportunity to see it the next time I visit London from my home in Zimbabwe.....

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.
