The Phantom of the Opera - Her Majesty's Theatre

The long-running show The Phantom of the Opera will be making changes this September, ensuring it remains new for audiences heading to the production at Her Majesty’s Theatre. Tim Howar is set to portray the Phantom, whilst Kimberly Blake and Ross Dawes also take on the roles of Carlotta and Monsier Firmin.

The current Phantom is played by Ben Lewis, with Howar making a brief replacement in the autumn. He is the latest in a long line of Phantoms over the years, which has also included Ramin Karimloo, Ben Forster and Michael Crawford, amongst others.

The show focuses on a mysterious figure known as The Phantom, who lurks beneath the Paris Opera House and causes havoc when things don’t go his own way. A disfigured musician, The Phantom has been a presence for some time but things change when he happens upon soprano Christine Daaé, with whom he falls madly in love. This obsession soon turns events at the venue upside down.

Along the way theatregoers experience musical numbers like The Music Of The Night, Think Of Me, Masquerade and title track The Phantom Of The Opera, to name but a few.
Audiences might recognise the name Tim Howar as the singer from The Band Mike + The Mechanics, though he has also amassed various musical credits to go alongside his rock band work. His credits include Peggy Sue Got Married at the Olivier National Theatre, Tonight’s The Night at the Victoria Palace Theatre, Rock of Ages at the Shaftesbury Theatre and Chess at the London Coliseum, amongst others.

So he is another familiar and experienced name stepping into the role of The Phantom and he appears alongside fellow newcomers Kimberly Blake and Ross Dawes as well as ongoing cast members like Jeremy Taylor, Jacinta Mulcahy and Kelly Mathieson, plus many others.

The Phantom Of The Opera is booking at Her Majesty’s Theatre for performances up to Saturday 2nd March 2019. Tim Howar plays the lead role from Monday 3rd September 2018 to Saturday 8th December 2018.
