The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. His obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical score is one of his most famous and stirring, including The Phantom of the Opera, Think of Me, and Music of the Night.
The cast will be lead by Jonathan Roxmouth, who is currently appearing in the global tour as The Phantom in Singapore, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. With a total of 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, the show is sure to be a mesmerising experience.
