Fall in love with the Phantom as you've never seen him before!
In 1986, Andrew Lloyd Webber opened his newest hit , The epic and powerful Phantom of the Opera, an electronic rock musical based on Gaston Leroux's 1910 book of the same name. The sweeping supernatural romance has since gone on to capture the public's imagination and embed itself in popular culture. As Broadway's longest running show, this juggernaut is still breaking records and in 2013, celebrated it's 10,400th performance!
Join Phantom as it moves into a new era, with an updated production ready to thrill audiences across America!
Hidden in the tunnels deep below the Paris Opera lies a mysterious deformed musical genius who stalks the halls and terrorizes the company. Face half covered by his famous mask , his only happiness comes from his tutoring of the beautiful, orphaned chorus girl Christine Daaé, with whom he has an enduring obsession. Unseen, he teaches the young soprano to sing 'The Music of the Night.' As her 'Angel of Music', Christine blossoms and steps out of the shadows onto centre stage.
When Christine becomes engaged to another man, the Phantom is driven mad with jealousy and will stop at nothing to possess her, even murder. And so begins a tantalizing tale of forbidden love and supernatural adventure so exciting that over 130 million people worldwide have been lost in the enchantment!
To achieve the spooky atmosphere, Phantom uses more than 500 pounds of dry ice and 10 fog and smoke machines every night!
