I thought The Phantom of The Opera was absolutely OUTSTANDING. Ramin Karimloo's vocals and acting was brilliant. He really brought out the vulnerability in the Phantom. Gina Beck was also outstanding and her rendition of Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again was fantastic and it brought me to tears. Simon Bailey was brilliant and a very good singer. I really enjoyed the show. When Christine came back to give the Phantom the ring I was in tears. An outstanding musical that I would highly recommend. (Sat in the Grand Circle, row E, seat 14 and the view was very, very good.)

..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.

I went to London especially to see this show and it didn't disappoint!! I saw the movie and just fell in love with the Phantom and seeing it on the stage was.....unbelievable-I was nearly crying at the end. At times I completly forgot I was watching a show I was that caught up in it!!! The seats I had were in row D of the Royal circle and they were amazing!! Even, before the interval I wanted to see it again!!! I would definatly reccommed anyone to go see it. The whole theatre gave the cast a standing ovation at the end......just can't praise it enough!!! :)

We visited London this summer, and went to Phantom of the Opera on 1st od Sept. Both of my kids knew the movie and soundtrack but... they were enchanted, totally speechless even that is hard to believe, and even now, when school started and many things are going on they still say how amaying and magic was it. If cast could have seen their faces it would be award. My friend bought tickets via net, and even she was on Phantom more then once, well, at the end we both crying. Thank you. And all the cast. And very nice people there working... it was a thing to remember.

We came to see the show for the 4th time on Saturday 7th Nov (matinee). Sat in 2nd row of grand circle. Haven't been for several years but was as amazed as ever by how everyone manages to make it seem like the first performance. Really like the way surround sound is used - made it very eerie. Everything, music, acting, singing, costumes, sets were faultless. FoH and bar staff were all very friendly too. Particularly liked that the Phantom wore a poppy for remembrance day/week. That was a really lovely gesture. Looking forward to our next visit, even though the youthfulness of the cast made me feel my age a bit this time - but that's my problem. You know what they say about policemen getting younger. Thank you all for a spell binding afternoon - you made an old woman very happy.

well I loved it the first time I saw it and still love it after seven times. I know I will want to watch it as many times as possible in the future. The theatre it self is a masterpiece, the music sublime and the costumes gorgeous

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.

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.
