Official description

Even for those who know little about musical theatre, The Phantom Of The Opera rings a loud bell. For theatre heads, this Andrew Lloyd Webber masterpiece, one of many, is more than just a play: It resembles life, love, loss, lust and human struggle, and the Phantom has become a symbol of a tortured soul, a lovelorn extremist behind the iconic half-faced white mask.

Twenty-six years after the musical opened in London, The Phantom Of The Opera is finally coming to Bangkok courtesy of BEC-Tero Entertainment and Scenario. Initially, the show had been slated for three weeks, but popular demand has already extended the season for a further week.

For the Bangkok production, Broadway veteran Brad Little is the Phantom, newcomer Claire Lyon plays Christine, and Anthony Downing takes on Raoul. Little has played the Phantom more than 2,000 times, but admits to feeling the same buzz every evening.

The Phantom Of The Opera is from May 7 to June 9 at Muangthai Rachadalai Theatre. Tickets cost 5,500, 4,000, 3,000, 2,500 and 1,500 baht and are available at www.thaiticketmajor.com and all Thai Ticket Major kiosks.

The show time is Tuesday to Sunday at 7.30pm, plus a 2pm matinee on weekends. The world-renowned musical with Andrew Lloyd Webber's unforgettable score will come with spectacular sets and dazzling special effects that will bring the legendary love story into life.

It tells the story of a disfigured musical genius known only as "The Phantom" who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House.

Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano, Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protege and falls fiercely in love with her.

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.
