Andrew Lloyd Webber's
The Phantom of the Opera

Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo
(Nicanor Abelardo Theater),

Based on the novel "Le Fantome De L'Opera" by Gaston Leroux, "Phantom" tells the story of a disfigured musical genius known only as "The Phantom" who haunts the Paris Opera House. Mesmerized by the talents and beauty of 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 jealousy, madness and passions collide.
With 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breathtaking special effects, and more than 230 costumes, the show contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber's most famous and stirring music, including "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Music of the Night".
Webber's critically acclaimed masterpiece celebrated its 25th anniversary on the West End stage last year, and continues to play to full houses nightly in London, New York and around the world. The timeless, romantic and much-loved musical has won seven Tony Awards, among them the Tony for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards and three Olivier Awards.
"This touring production of 'Phantom' is as fine as any version you might see on the West End or Broadway," said show producer Tim McFarlane, Managing Director of The Really Useful Company Asia Pacific.
"It is the same superb design, and we invest a great deal to ensure it is of the highest standards. Our stellar cast assembles the industry's best performers, with members coming from the UK, USA, Australia and South Africa to join forces."
The Manila touring production is produced by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, David Atkins Enterprises, Hi-Definition Radio Inc. and Concertus in association with The Really Useful Group.
