"The Tony-winning Best Musical Captivates Broadway Nightly!"
The longest-running musical in Broadway history, The Phantom of the Opera is a show that has become a New York City landmark… and an event that simply must be experienced as part of any traveler's tour of the city. Set in the cellars of the Paris Opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s dazzling masterpiece is the story of a beautiful soprano named Christine and the mysterious, disfigured musical genius who becomes obsessed with her… and who haunts her with his gorgeously lilting voice. Directed by the great Harold Prince, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lloyd Weber and choreography by Gillian Lynne, The Phantom of the Opera won a whopping seven Tony Awards, including honors for Best Musical, Best Direction, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design and Best Lighting. With its epic scale, sweeping melodies and classic love story, The Phantom of the Opera is what Broadway does best: It takes you to a dark, wondrous world, introduces you to ingenious characters you want to spend time with and leaves you breathless at its glory and theatricality.
When it comes to grand scale, nothing beats The Phantom of the Opera. This is what a great big Broadway musical feels like. The show is world famous for it's massive set, in which the Paris Opera is brought to vibrant life and a huge chandelier sweeps down over the audience nightly in one of Broadway's most renowned special effects. But Phantom also boasts a legendary score (including the signature ballad "Music of the Night") by none other than Andrew Lloyd Webber, whose many other international smashes include Cats, Evita and Sunset Boulevard. And the musical features opulent production values, with gorgeous costumes, a large cast and cinematic stagecraft, not to mention a classic love story of obsession and mystery. If you're looking for a gold-plated Broadway experience that delivers on excitement, size and power, then The Phantom of the Opera is the show for you.
