I am a regularly theatre goer and an aspiring actor myself at University and for many reasons i keep returning to Phantom, its simply inspiring and magic. I have seen the show 11 times and not once has it been a let down. The music is incredible and passionate, the singing is out of this world and there is no other experiance like it, where ever you see it, pure genius and utter brilliance.

I first saw phantom in 1989 when I was 19. Since then i have seen 27 performance s of the show. I am looking forward to my 28th visit on Saturday 5th December 2015. I love to take someone who has never seen it and see the pleasure it gives them. Go and see this show and " let the spectacle astound you" enjoy!!

5.0 star rating Angela from LA,USA


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.

4.5 star rating Amy from London,


The Phantom blew me away. Fantastic! Fantastic! fantastic! He stole the show .... Everyone else performed very well but the Phantom was outstanding....

..and both times I adored this. I am 16 years of age and nothing can compare to this masterpiece... Later this year, when I am at college recieving EMA, I will not hesitate AT ALL in going to see this with my own money. The lyrics are so powerful and moving! Something, if you listen hard, you will take in and will be haunted by. As I said before, i'm a 16 year old boy so people would think little teenage things would interest me more - wrong. The passion in their voices and movements during "Music of the Night" touched me so much, I felt as if I was there as The Phantom or Christine Daae - they didn't seem like stage actors/actresses AT ALL. Aside from the lyrics - the music was amazing! With a brilliant array of musicians (not quite sure of the actual name - band?) In itself the music told a thousand emotions - from sadness to happiness, mystery to fear, passion to hatred and many more... All in all, The Phantom of the Opera is an amazing piece - and I think we would all agree.

4.0 star rating Extremely disappointed from england


the seats in the grand circle are the most uncomfortable seats I have ever experiencedin any theatre in the world, its a good job the show was so amazing but I will never visit this theatre again whatever they may show in the future particularly as my tickets arrived advising me that there was also restricted view from my seats, I really think this important information must be made available at the time of booking not at the time of delivery when its too late to change, bloody shame eh !!

4.0 star rating Chris.P from Basingstoke - England


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.
