What is Phantom of the Opera about?

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, the Phantom hides in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the Phantom seeks to control the Paris Opera House and its players. The Phantom finds a new student in the form of Christine, an orphaned chorus girl and trains her to sing the music of the night. When a face from her past appears the Phantom must discover if the love he holds for his beautiful student is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

When was Phantom of the Opera written?

In 1984 Andrew Lloyd Webber was looking to pen a major romance and a reading of Gaston Leroux’s classic novel of mystery and suspense, The Phantom of the Opera, provided the substance he was looking for. The musical went through many iterations and lyricists before it became the classic we know and love today. The Phantom of the Opera opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. Now in its 33rd record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End.

The Phantom of the Opera story has spawned many retellings including multiple film adaptations. The most recent of which came out in 2004 and starred Scottish actor Gerard Butler.
