Following an acclaimed sold-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success, The Phantom of the Opera, has been hailed by critics as “bigger and better than ever before.” This production boasts many exciting special effects including the show’s legendary chandelier, new scenic and lighting designs, new staging and choreography. The beloved story and thrilling score will be performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this Phantom one of the largest productions now on tour.

The love the Phantom has for Christine is so passionate and his love for her is felt through his music.  The touring cast is phenomenal and their voices will raise the hair on your neck and bring tears to your eyes.  The revolving set is breathtaking and the craftsmanship impeccable.  The extravagant colors in the costumes keep you wondering what is next and be vigilant and ready to experience some mysterious lighting and sound effects.  This is a show you don’t want to miss!
