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.

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!

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...

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.

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!

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

I went to see the show last week and I thought it was utterly breath taking. I’ve never enjoyed a show so much. The costumes were beautiful and the signing was out of this world. I’d go and see this again. I highly recommend.

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.
