Where is That Ghostly Music Coming From?

The longest running Broadway musical of all time, The Phantom of the Opera made its debut on London's West End in 1986, with a spine tingling performance my Michael Crawford. Now in it's twenty-eight year, you can see Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterpiece at Her Majesty's Theatre, with bookings being taken up until 25th October 2014. Tickets are 21-95.

Who is it that plays such heavenly music beneath the stage of the Paris Opera House? Ashamed of his disfigured appearance, the strange masked man - The Phantom - lives in exile, leading a lonely existence. But when he meets Carlotta everything changes - and not necessarily for the better. Atmospheric sets, exciting special effects, and awe-inspiring songs such as 'Angel of Music' and 'Music of the Night' leave little wonder why the show is so popular.

It all began with the French novelist, Gaston Leroux, who published the book in 1909. He had a passion for theatre, but never succeeded in producing a play; it therefore only feels fitting that The Phantom of the Opera should become such a worldwide success.
