Phantom of the Opera to Celebrate Anniversary at Royal Albert Hall

Hard to believe it's been 25 years since that iconic chandelier first came crashing (really, creaking) down, but it's true: The Phantom of the Opera is now celebrating its quarter-centennial.

To honor the milestone, legendary London-based producer Cameron Mackintosh will present the show for three performances only at the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday October 1 at 7.30pm and Sunday October 2 at 1.30pm and 7.00pm.

The fully staged production of Phantom of the Opera at the Albert Hall will reunite the two stars of Phantom's sequel, Love Never Dies, bringing them back to the original roles. Ramin Karimloo will play The Phantom and Sierra Boggess will play Christine, a role she has also taken on in the Las Vegas adaptation of the show. The cast and orchestra will feature more than 200 artists, and we hear some "special guest appearances" are in the works.

Phantom of the Opera at the Albert Hall will be directed by Laurence Connor with musical staging and choreography by Gillian Lynne, who choreographed the original production. The Royal Albert Hall will be transformed by Matt Kinley, inspired by Maria Björnson’s original design.The original London production was directed by legendary Broadway director and producer Hal Prince.

Tickets for Phantom of the Opera at the Albert Hall will go on sale on Monday, July 4 at 10.00am and are available at 011-44-0845-401-5045 or at www.phantom25th.com.
