The Phantom of the Opera
The world’s most famous stage performance, The Phantom of the Opera, is making its spectacular Middle East debut this coming autumn at Dubai Opera. Ever since its premiere at London’s West End in October 1986, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s blockbuster musical has taken the world by storm with over 13,000 performances and 30 years on stage.
Based on the eponymous novel by Gaston Leroux, ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ tells the story of a musical genius living under the Paris Opera House who develops a fiery obsession with a beautiful soprano, Christine Daae. The deeply emotive play, which explores the corners of jealousy, passion and madness, has received acclaim by critics worldwide and over 70 major theatre awards during its lifetime. Broadway Entertainment Group and Dubai Opera bring this latest production to Dubai with a cast, crew and orchestra of 130 members, paired with breathtaking scenery to bring the show to life.
