The show time is Tuesday to Sunday at 7.30pm, plus a 2pm matinee on weekends.

With spectacular sets and more than 230 costumes by an international designer, the late Maria Bjornson, the musical contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber's most famous songs, including The Phantom Of The Opera and Music Of The Night.
As the longest-running musical on Broadway, The Phantom Of The Opera recently celebrated its 25-year anniversary and has won more than 50 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards.
Muang Thai Rachadalai Theatre is located at The Esplanade on Ratchadaphisek Road.
