Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical will return to Her Majesty’s Theatre from the 5th June 2021.
It has been confirmed that the long running musical based on the 1910 French novel of the same name by Gaston Leroux will open again in London from June 2021 – provided that the government’s audience restrictions have been lifted.
Meanwhile, Killian Donnelly will be starring in the production when the musical returns to London. He was starring in the touring version of the show which had to close early due to the pandemic. His other stage credits include Kinky Boots and Les Misérables.
The Phantom of the Opera features songs such as ‘The Music of the Night’, ‘All I Ask of You’ and ‘Think of Me’. It has lyrics by Charles Hart and Richard Stilgoe and a book by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Stilgoe.
Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.
The musical originally opened in the West End in 1986, directed by Hal Prince with choreography by Gillian Lynne. For this production, producers have said that it will be a “brand new physical production of Maria Bjornson’s original design in a refurbished theatre.”
The Phantom of the Opera will now be booking from the 5th June 2021.
