Some shows have a huge effect on audiences and then there are those that transcend the stage, becoming an intrinsic part of a particular scene. The Phantom Of The Opera manages both, not only leaving a lasting impression on theatregoers night after night, but also becoming a defining part of the West End.

The Phantom Of The Opera is also the second-longest running musical in the capital and all of this is a testament not only to the wonderful music of Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics of Charles Hart, but also to the performances of some talented actors and singers across the decades.

It opens in the Paris of 1911 at an auctioning of the contents of the Paris Opera House.  The contents include a fabulous chandelier in which the auctioneer proceeds to tell the story of the legend of the Phantom of the Opera.  Suddenly you are transported back a time when the Paris Opera House was at the height of its powers.

At that time, the opera house is, claimed by many, to be inhabited by a ghost.  If this ghost is in anyway offended or annoyed then he will cause mayhem in the opera house.  The ghost or phantom then decides to help a lowly chorus girl, Christine Daaé by giving her music lessons through the wall of her dressing room.  He pretends to be the spirit of her dead father and as a result of this she becomes a talented singer who is then thrust into the limelight.

This phantom worships Christine and is determined to make her a star.  He demands that the opera house management cast her in a starring role in the new opera Il Muto but the manager, Raoul refuses to do so.  As a result of this the phantom, angered by this refusal decides to cause chaos in the opera house.  He is chased but manages to evade capture by causing a fabulous chandelier to crash to the ground.
   
Later on, we see the Grand Masquerade Ball.  Six months have passed since the Phantom’s last appearance and people have started to think that he has gone forever.  In that time, Raoul and Christine have become engaged which causes the Phantom to return in a fit of jealous rage.

He makes new demands of the management and tries to win back the affection of Christine but she is committed to Raoul who she loves deeply.  In a confrontation, the Phantom demands that Christine comes back to him or Raoul will die.  The story continues...

It is a captivating and memorable story, which has captured the imaginations of audiences for decades, with theatregoers flocking from all over the world to witness the tale unfold. Long may it continue!

The Phantom Of The Opera continues its run at Her Majesty’s Theatre and is likely to continue entertaining audiences for some time to come.
