Originally a novel Le Fantôme de l'Opéra by Gaston Leroux in 1909 the story was given the "Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber" treatment in 1986 and to this day remains a must see production.
Having watched the DVD many times I was eager to see the stage show. I've got to say it was simply stunning. Her Majesty's theatre is relatively small with just an 1100 seat capacity but it has so much character. From the start the production was breathtaking. The set changes are seamless and the effects are technically brilliant. The story stirs more emotion on stage than the DVD can manage despite me having a superb home cinema. An unforgettable performance that will stay with me forever.
