The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majestys Theatre
Beneath the majesty, beauty and gothic splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a lonely and shadowy existence. Shamed by his hideous, physical appearance and feared by one and all, the deep love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist his charms.
Based on the original novel by Gaston Leroux, and now in its 25th record-breaking year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to captivate audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London’s West End, after more than 10,000 stunning performances.
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.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s mesmerising score along with jaw-dropping scenery and breathtaking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life each night. There are many fantastic shows in London’s West End, but this is up there with the very best.
Her Majesty’s Theatre
Her Majesty's Theatre is a West End theatre, in Haymarket, City of Westminster, London. The original Theatre was established by architect and playwright John Vanbrugh, in 1705, as the Queen's Theatre. Between 1711 and 1739, more than 25 operas by George Frederick Handel premièred here.
The name of the theatre changes with the sex of the monarch. It first became the King's Theatre in 1714 on the accession of George I. It was renamed Her Majesty's Theatre in 1837. Most recently, the theatre was known as His Majesty's Theatre from 1901 to 1952, and it became Her Majesty's on the accession of Elizabeth II.
The present building was constructed in 1897 and since World War I, the wide stage has made the theatre suitable for large-scale musical productions, and the theatre has specialised in hosting musicals.
The theatre's capacity is 1,216 seats, and the building was Grade II* listed by English Heritage in January 1970. Really Useful Group Theatres has owned the theatre building since 2000. The land beneath it is on a long-term lease from the Crown Estate.
The theatre has been home to record-setting musical theatre runs, including the World War I sensation Chu Chin Chow and the current production, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera, which has played continuously at Her Majesty's since 1986.
