The Phantom of the Opera - Broadway

For over 30 years, The Phantom of the Opera has been haunting New York! The longest running musical in Broadway history, Andrew Lloyd Webber's unforgettable score has become synonymous with the musical theatre.

"Phantom" won seven Tony Awards in 1988, including Best Musical. Based on the classic french novel of the same name by Gaston Leroux, thePhantom of the Opera tells the story of the hideously deformed Phantom who lurks beneath the stage of the Paris Opera.

However, when the Phantom falls in love with the young Soprano, he devotes himself to turning the chorus girl into the opera's new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and employing all the skills at his disposal.

Featured Reviews For The Phantom of the Opera


A grand 'Opera' - New York Daily News
It is a spectacular entertainment, visually the most impressive of the British musicals. Perhaps the most old-fashioned thing about it is it's a love story, something Broadway has not seen for quite a while. To say the score is Lloyd Webber's best is not saying a great deal. His music always has a synthetic, borrowed quality to it. As you listen you find yourself wondering where you've heard it before. In this case you've heard a lot of it in Puccini, in the work of other Broadway composers and even the Beatles. Nevertheless he seems to be borrowing from better sources, and he has much greater sophistication about putting it all together. There are some droll opera parodies, several beautiful songs, an impressive septet and a grand choral number, all richly orchestrated.

STAGE VIEW; Now, About That Chandelier That Goes Crashing - New York Times
In the end, The Phantom of the Opera can be no more than the sum of its pictorial effects. It's no opera (not with those bland melodies, not with lyric phrases like "Be My Guest" and "Make My Night"), it's not a display case of serious acting, it's not humor (not even self-mockery). It's pyschologically lightweight, long on melodramatic grotesquerie, and it can only on its visual chills. Will three chills, plus candles that swarm like fireflies, do you?
