With 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breath-taking special effects and more than 230 costumes by the late international designer late Maria Björnson, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous and stirring music, including ‘The Phantom of the Opera,’ ‘Think of Me,’ and ‘Music of the Night.’ The original cast recording, with over 40 million copies sold worldwide, is the best-selling cast recording of all time.
Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the tale of a musical genius known only as the Phantom who inhabits the depths of the magnificent Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent and beauty of a young soprano, Christine Daae, the Phantom falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for another, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where unrequited love, jealousy and passions collide.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, which opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End on October 9, 1986, starred Michael Crawford as the Phantom and Sarah Brightman as Christine. It is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is presented in Dubai by Broadway Entertainment Group in association with Dubai Opera.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is brought to you by Du Live.
