Phantom of the Opera – Book Now

Experience the phenomenon of one of the most successful musicals of all time, when Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary show comes to Melbourne.

Hit after hit punctuates the thrilling score, from the stunning romance of ‘Music of the Night’, ‘Think of Me’ and ‘All I Ask of You’ to the splendid ‘Masquerade’ and brilliant title song.

Overseen by Cameron Mackintosh and Matthew Bourne, the “simply epic” new staging includes many special effects, from the famous chandelier to the underground lake, and a large cast and orchestra. It’s “bigger and better than ever before” (Yorkshire Post), “stunning, intense and spectacular” (Sunday Express).

The Phantom of the Opera haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. He’s man and mystery, a deformed genius. And in Christine Daae, he’s found his angel of music: the young woman he would make a star. But how many lives will he sacrifice to make the music of the night?
