Andrew Lloyd Webber's romantic musical The Phantom Of The Opera is based on Gaston Leroux's 1911 gothic novel of life beneath the stage of the Paris Opera House.

A mysterious masked man, whose spectral presence casts a shadow over the Paris Opera House, falls in love with Christine Daaé, a singer from the opera's chorus. With the help of the Phantom's 'persuasive powers' she soon becomes the star of the show. When she oversteps the mark, however, the masked man turns from friend to frightened monster.

The Phantom Of The Opera is one of the most successful musicals of all time. The show opened on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles of the Phantom and Christine. Later that year Crawford won a Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Performance in a Musical and the show itself won Musical of the Year. A Broadway production two years later was the recipient of numerous awards including seven Tonys.

In addition to The Music Of The Night and the title number, Lloyd Webber's score for The Phantom Of The Opera includes the songs All I Ask Of You, Think Of Me and The Point Of No Return.

Over 130 cast and crew are involved in the production and each performance has 230 costume changes.
