Last night, the West End production of Phantom of the Opera made history as the first musical to broadcast live directly to Facebook, in honor of the production's 30th anniversary. Check out photos of the event below, and watch the video stream here!

Far beneath the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protegee Christine Daae is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA opened at Her Majesty's Theatre on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles, and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then.
