Additional lyrics by Richard StilgoeBook by Richard Stilgoe & Andrew Lloyd Webber; Based on the novel Le Fantome de ‘l’Opéra by Gaston Leroux

The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s enthralling score includes “Think of Me”, “Angel of Music”, “‘Music of the Night”, “All I Ask of You”, “Masquerade” and the title song.
