Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber’s adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s French novel is one of the most famous and popular musicals ever made. The Phantom of the Opera
, which opened at the Majestic Theatre in 1988, is the winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and– with 10,000 performances and counting – is currently the longest-running production in Broadway history.
The Phantom of the Opera
is set near the turn of the 20th century in the French capital, where the Paris Opera House is harboring a dark secret: A physically deformed, genius composer haunts its inhabitants from a lair beneath the theater. Mournful and alone, the “Phantom” becomes obsessed with the Paris Opera’s breathtaking new ingénue, Christine. The soprano is both fascinated by and terrified of the mysterious masked man who writes operas specifically for her. Flattered and eager to succeed, Christine accepts the Phantom’s tutelage. When a friend from Christine’s childhood, a handsome young noble named Raoul, re-enters the singer’s life, the Phantom goes mad with jealousy and plots revenge, setting off a disastrous chain of events that threaten every life in the Paris Opera House – including his own.
The Phantom of the Opera
is a pop musical in the familiar Andrew Lloyd Webber vein (Cats, Evita
). Many of its songs – including the ballads “The Music of the Night” and “Think of Me,” as well as melodramatic production numbers like the title tune – have become standards. Even without much authentic opera music, Phantom
is operatic in scope, utilizing a large cast and orchestra performing Lloyd Webber’s Puccini-influenced score, period costumes, and that signature chandelier crashing to the stage.
Two hours and 30 minutes (one intermission)
Good for kids?
While The Phantom of the Opera
is free of R-rated content, it’s not suited for young children. Murder, sudden onstage frights like dead bodies, and the sight of the Phantom’s disfigured face may be upsetting to younger viewers. But mature tweens and above are likely to appreciate the same scares that make it inappropriate for small children. The Phantom of the Opera Ticket Info:
