The world’s most popular musical Andrew Lloyd Webber’s PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, makes a triumphant appearance at Musical Theater Basel from 6th November to 22nd December 2024!

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous musical is also one of the most successful in entertainment history, playing to over 160 million people in 41 countries and 186 cities in 19 languages. It is the longest-running show on Broadway, having celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2018, and has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards, including one for Best Musical.

ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’S PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, and set in magnificent Paris in the 1930s, tells the tale of a musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House.

Mesmerized 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 jealousy, madness and passions collide.

With 100 cast, crew, company and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breathtaking special effects and more than 230 costumes PHANTOM OF THE OPERA contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous and stirring music including; The Phantom of the Opera, Think of Me and Music of the Night. The original cast recording, with over 40 million copies sold worldwide, is the best-selling cast recording of all time.
