World’s Most Popular Musical: The Phantom of the Opera
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical masterpiece returns for another run in Singapore with a stellar cast from South Africa, US, Australia and Asia, accompanied by a full 11-piece live orchestra playing some of Webber’s most famous music such as The Phantom of the Opera, Think of Me and Music of the Night.
The world’s most popular musical and longest-running show on Broadway continues to play to full houses around the world. On 1 January 2018, the musical celebrated its 13,000th performance and later that month on 24 January, the Broadway production celebrated an amazing 30 years on Broadway.
Seen by over 145 million people in 150 cities across 30 countries, the musical has won more than 70 major theatre awards including seven Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards, including one for Best Musical.
Based on Gaston Leroux’s novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra, the musical tells the story of a disfigured musical genius known only as The Phantom who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talent and beauty of Christine, a young soprano, The Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, The Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.
The timeless, romantic musical showcases jaw-dropping scenery, breathtaking special effects and over 230 costumes by the late international designer Maria Bjornson.
