Phantom of the Opera Information
Andrew Loyd Webbers Phantom of the Opera just so happens to be the longest running Musical on Broadway. It tells the story of the hideously deformed Phantom who lurks beneath the stage of the Paris Opera, exercising a reign of terror over its occupants. The phantom falls in love with the young Soprano devoting himself to creating a new star for the Opera by nurturing her extraordinary talents and employing all the skills at his disposal.The Musical is very much like the novel by Gaston Leroux. The music is powerful, and the story is passionate.
Phantom of the Opera opened on Broadway January 26, 1988. To date, it is the highest-grossing entertainment event of all time.
