“The Sydney audiences have been fantastic,” said co-producer Tim McFarlane.   “Our limited season has been very well received and certainly sales reflect this.”

John Frost, co-producer said “We are half way through our tour and the production is set to open in New Zealand on October 14.  Sydney will need to get in quick to not miss out.”

The Phantom of the Opera is the longest running musical on Broadway, having recently celebrated 21 years since its debut in London’s West End, and has won more than 50 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards. It’s been 11 years since the musical was last performed in Sydney.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House.  Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her.  Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, The Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealously, madness and passions collide.

With spectacular sets and more than 230 costumes by international designer, the late Maria Björnson, The Phantom of the Opera contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous music, including ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ and ‘Music of the Night’.
