Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera makes a triumphant return to Nashville for a two- week engagement October 24-November 4.
“Having received great critical acclaim in the U.K. and North America, I am really pleased that Laurence Connor’s new production of Phantom will continue to tour the U.S., playing in tandem with the Broadway production which just celebrated 30 years at the Majestic Theatre.” – Andrew Lloyd Webber
Based on the classic novel “Le Fantôme 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.
Cameron Mackintosh’s brilliant original production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera continues performances at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London and in its record-breaking run at the Majestic Theatre on Broadway, and many other cities around the world.
“With Phantom still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 30 phenomenal years with no end in sight, I’m delighted that this spectacular new production of Phantom has been as well-received in the U.S. as the brilliant original and has already been seen by more than 3.7 million people across North America since it opened in November 2013. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, the new Phantom is thrilling audiences and critics alike all over again. With the production continuing to be such a success, we are delighted to welcome our exciting new stars to keep the music of the night soaring for many years to come.” -Cameron Mackintosh
