The Phantom, at last, comes to Wellington
Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
The Phantom of the Opera opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London on 9 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 25th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 10,000 performances.
From the Producers of Cats and Les Miserables, see The Phantom like you’ve never see it before in a stunning new design making its international debut in Wellington. Critics throughout the world have described Phantom as “a thrill to behold and a sensual feast for the eyes” and “a gorgeous extravaganza”… it will be a production not to be missed.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life at the St James Theatre in June 2013. It is one of the most anticipated productions in a decade and is likely to be a sell-out. Book early for this spectacle of musical theatre.
