Catch the Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall

Fans of the Andrew Lloyd Webber classic Phantom of the Opera could book luxury suites in London now ready for a special performance this autumn.

The show will be celebrating its 25th anniversary with a two-night production at the Royal Albert Hall on October 1st and 2nd.

Starring Ramin Karimloo ad the Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine, the lavish musical will tell the well-known tale of the melancholy Phantom and his love for a young soprano.

The cast will be accompanied by a orchestra of 200 musicians and some special guests, who will be making exclusive appearances in the show.

“One of the greatest strengths of the Phantom of the Opera is that being set in an opera house, its production is totally theatrical,” said producer Sir Cameron Mackintosh.

“We felt that there could be no better 19th century theatrical auditorium in London for this occasion than the Royal Albert Hall.

“With its Victorian red plush and celebrated magnificent organ it is the perfect place for the Phantom to haunt.”

During the last 25 years, the Phantom of the Opera has won more than 50 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards on Broadway and three Olivier Awards in the West End.

It first opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in October 1986, with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman taking on the lead roles.

Worldwide the show has grossed over £3.2 billion in box offices revenues – more than any other film or stage play in history.

The Royal Albert Hall is located on the south edge of Hyde Park, around a 30 minute walk from The Montcalm hotel.

A Grade I listed building, it has been in continuous use since it opening in March 1871 and now plays host to a variety of theatre and musical performances, including the renowned BBC Proms series.
