THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA marks a major milestone tonight!

The long-running London production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber hit The Phantom of the Opera celebrates 12,000 performances tonight and the cast convened onstage at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End to mark the occasion with a celebratory group photo, now available to view.

The official Facebook and Twitter account shared the news this afternoon along with a photo of the cast and crew, remarking, "Tonight marks the 12,000th performance of The Phantom of the Opera on the West End! Congratulations to all who have been involved in any of the 12,000 shows."

The official description of The Phantom of the Opera is as follows: "Far beneath the majesty and splendour 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 protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

The musical 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. Now in its 29th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty's Theatre in London's West End.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's mesmerizing score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night."

The current cast of the show is headlined by Geronimo Rauch, with Harriet Jones, Emmi Christensson, Liam Tamne, Lara Martins, Andy Hockley, Martin Ball, Jacinta Mulachy, John Ellis, Alicia Beck and more.
