World-renowned Andrew Lloyd Webber production runs at the venue in spring 2020
The Phantom of the Opera is set to tour the UK in 2020 and Manchester Palace Theatre will be the first venue to host Andrew Lloyd Webber's world-renowned show. The production runs at the venue from Thu 26 Mar–Sat 30 May 2020. Tickets are on sale now.
Produced by Cameron Mackintosh and the Really Useful Theatre Company Limited, The Phantom of the Opera will travel from the West End to Manchester next spring.
Now in its 33rd year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to sell out venues in London and beyond. The show is widely considered one of the greatest productions in history, having played to over 145 million people in 41 countries and 183 cities in 17 languages. It has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards.
The Phantom of the Opera follows the life of a disfigured musical genius known only as 'The Phantom' who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano named Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégée 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.
The show would be nothing without its romantic, haunting and soaring score including well-known hits like 'Music of the Night', 'All I Ask of You' and 'Masquerade'.
