Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA will go on sale Saturday, May 6th at noon for the premiere Montreal engagement at salle Wilfrid-Pelletier (Place des Arts). With newly reinvented staging and stunning scenic design, this new version of PHANTOM is performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this one of the largest productions on tour in North America.
Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
Cameron Mackintosh said, “With PHANTOM still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 29 phenomenal years, with no end in sight, I’m delighted that this spectacular new production of PHANTOM has been as well-received in the U.S. as the brilliant original and has already been seen by over 2.5 million people across North America since it opened in November 2013. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, the new PHANTOM is thrilling audiences and critics alike all over again.”
“Powerful, gorgeous…and better than ever.”
– The Philadelphia Inquirer
“Extraordinarily opulent. This PHANTOM’S storytelling and relationships have an electrifying tension.”
– Chicago Sun-Times
“An intense and spectacular new production with a stunning new design, fresh drama and added momentum.”
–Sunday Express (U.K.)
“Take a deep breath and prepare to be dazzled; this kind of gorgeous escapism is exactly what audiences need.”
–The Scotsman (U.K.)
“This PHANTOM is for a new generation.”
-Roy Leonard, Chicago Now
