Andrew Lloyd Webber's masterwork is a timeless story of seduction and despair.

Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
Lyrics by Charles Hart

Additional lyrics by Richard StilgoeBook by Richard Stilgoe & Andrew Lloyd Webber; Based on the novel Le Fantome de ‘l’Opéra by Gaston Leroux

The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s enthralling score includes “Think of Me,” “Angel of Music,” “‘Music of the Night,” “All I Ask of You,” “Masquerade” and the title song.

Rights to perform the iconic Tony-winning tuner are currently available to high/secondary schools and colleges; the show’s run time is approximately 2 hours and 33 minutes.

Originally directed by Harold Prince; Orchestrations by David Cullen & Andrew Lloyd Webber; Original production by Cameron Mackintosh Ltd. and The Really Useful Group Ltd.
