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....

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

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 !!

3.0 star rating Hmm from Anytown, AT 55555


Seeing this show from the Royal ALbert Hall at the Cinema, I thought would be a cheap evening out. Went to a different cinema than for Les Mis 25th anniversary due to satellite issues making the picture stutter. THis time the projection was terrible (apparently nothing the cinema could do because they were getting the feed from an external company) and sound quality was non existant. During Masquarade, the sound had gone for the whole sequence, so someone shouted "this is my favourite song, i can sing it if you want!" I would like to know whether this just happened in London (Cineworld Wandsworth for Phantom, Odeon Wimbledon for Les Mis) or whether it was a national thing. If its a national thing then they need to change satellite providers! Should have gone to Hyde park to see if I could have heard it from the Hall itself!

2.5 star rating Kathy from Bristol England


This was the worst production of Phantom that I have ever seen. Special effects were average and whom ever played the lead of Phantom on Saturday 17th April was not up to the part. When the powerful voice was neede he was shouting not singing. Spoilt my day out to see Phantom and Love Never Dies in tandem. I have previously seen the stage production in Bristol and London so I do have a benchmark.

How disappointing. My wife and I have seen Phantom 5 times between us and both love the show. I bought premium seats for her birthday and we both very much looked forward to seeing the show again. Sadly we were so angry with the current weak cast and bizarre direction that we decided not to return for act 2. The original show was written to portray the undiscovered talent of Christine by the tortured and brilliant Phantom. Both leads on stage last Friday (9th July 10) were weak to say the least and coupled with the almost pantomime direction the result was to ruin what is a perfect work by Lloyd Webber et al. All that class and illusion lost. I hope Lloyd-Webber sees this recent travesty and influences a change to his original design. Gutted.

Terrible lip sinking. Where was the orchestra? Could not see all of the performance. Walked out after 20 minutes. So disappointing to how the show was years ago. Avoid at all costs

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.
