I have seen phantom twice now. I think I could watch it every single day and never get tired of it. Simply beautiful - the best musical there's ever been (or is likley to ever be). If you haven't seen it - why not? Go see it. Even if you have to sell a few things to do it! It'll be worth it!

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!!

I took my husband (who doesn’t like musicals) to see Phantom of the Opera last night for his birthday. It’s one of those bucket list wishes that he’s had for years, but not liking musical theatre prevented an earlier visit. From the moment that first note was played by the orchestra and the singing started he was totally BLOWN AWAY! It was the best thing we have ever seen on stage, the opera singing was first class from all the actors, it was emotional, believable, breathtaking…. every single cast member shone in their own right. The costumes and scenery were even astounding…every single detail all came together in an absolute masterpiece. Massive well done to all of the cast and crew, phenomenal show - definitely the best ever.

The show was fantastic. The staff were brilliant too. Gemma was an absolute star, she was attentive, chatty and added to a great experience. Thank you Gemma for your assistance and helping our experience to be prefect

By far the best musical I have ever seen, magical and unique

4.5 star rating Anonymous from Brigton, UK


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.

The three of us totally enjoyed this production. My older son is a Phantom fanatic and said this play was superb. The music, costumes, and singing were great. We sat in the stalls close to the stage at C8 and had fantastic views of the actors and chandelier. If we were to go again, we might choose the lower balcony front center seating. My only complaint is the rules regarding photography. I asked the receptionist before the play about photography rules and was told it was ok to take pictures before and after the play. I took pictures before the play started. As I was preparing to take pictures after the play ended and most people had left, I was yelled at by a rude usher that also made some inappropriate comments. Management needs to be more consistent and polite with interpretation and enforcement of the rules.

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.
