Opera Australia and the Really Useful Group
In association with
Cameron Mackintosh
The New Production of
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s

The Phantom of the Opera

at Arts Centre Melbourne

Experience the phenomenon of one of the most successful musicals of all time, when Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary show comes to Melbourne.

Hit after hit punctuates the thrilling score, from the stunning romance of ‘Music of the Night’, ‘Think of Me’ and ‘All I Ask of You’ to the splendid ‘Masquerade’ and brilliant title song.

Now, you can hear them all in a spectacular new production that has stunned critics across the United Kingdom and North America. It features new direction by Laurence Connor, new scenic design by Paul Brown, lighting design by Tony Award®-winner Paule Constable, sound design by Mick Potter, new choreography by Scott Ambler and the original, Tony Award®-winning costume design by Maria Björnson.

Overseen by Cameron Mackintosh and Matthew Bourne, the “eye-poppingly innovative” (Australian Financial Review) new staging includes many special effects, from the famous chandelier to the underground lake, and a large cast and orchestra. It “remains as visually ravishing as ever” (The Age), and “cannot fail to impress” (Time Out).

The Phantom haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. He’s man and mystery, a deformed genius. And in Christine Daaé, he’s found his angel of music: the young woman he would make a star. But how many lives will he sacrifice to make the music of the night?

“Classics are classic for a reason. ★★★★★”

At an auction of opera memorabilia at the Paris Opera House, an old man, Raoul, Vicomte de Chagny, bids for a strange musical box which seems to hold for him some special memory. The newly restored chandelier is revealed and we are swept back to the time of Raoul’s youth, when the chandelier hung in splendour from the dome of the Opera House.
