The longest running musical in Broadway history!
Whakatane brings you, Andrew Lloyd Webbers Phantom of the Opera
Deformed since birth, a bitter man known only as the Phantom lives in the sewers underneath the Paris Opera House. He falls in love with the obscure chorus singer Christine, and privately tutors her while terrorizing the rest of the opera house and demanding Christine be given lead roles. Things get worse when Christine meets back up with her childhood acquaintance Raoul and the two fall in love. The Phantom decides to kidnap her and imprison her with him in his lair. Raoul is now the only one who can stop him.
Be welcomed and tantalised by the score "the Phantom of the opera", "think of me", "masquerade", "All I ask of you" and "the path of no return"
Phantom won the 1986 Olivier and 1988 Tony Awards for Best Musical, with Michael Crawford taking home Best Actor in a Musical at both ceremonies. The show has played to over 140 million people in 35 countries in 166 cities around the world, winning over 70 major theatre awards.
