Phantom of the Opera by Ann
Scenery and effects were amazing.
A musical delight by Susan
Fantastic show , great singing/ acting - choose your seats wisely, drinks expensive
Planning to see just one musical in your life ? - this is it !! by Thomas
From the start to the end - this is magic....
Thrilling. Stunning in costumes and acting / singing by Keith
We waited 20+ years to see it and were stunned by the quality of singing, acting and costumes. We do however feel Christine should have taken the final bow rather than the Phantom, as she was the star of the show!
My experience of Her Majesty Theathre by Alexander
Good opera , good theatre but no any dress code for visitors is required - it spoils a bit a general good impression
ph-antastic by mark
Stunning show as always, from the music to costumes ...u have to see this show, at least once in your life....5th time for us. Today's actors were maybe the best of any I've seen
Wonderful entertainment by Nora

Excellent by Siwei

The best show I have every seen.
Delivers every time by Thomas
I have seen the performance many times (as my visitors always wants to see it) and I am amazed by they way Her Majesty and the ensemble makes magic every night. Invest in a good seat and a drink in the bar in interval (short - so ask for plastic glass) go back and enjoy !
Greatest show on earth by Ian
London best show 5 star every time
Awesome!! by Tracy
We were fortunate enough to have front row seats which were amazing. I would recommend seats in the stalls to enhance the experience.The closer the better. If you ever go and see this show once, get the best seat possible. The show is a romantic, spooky musical and is without doubt the best show in the west end right now.
Superb by C
A fabulous show with great scenery and props. The acting was good and also the songs. I was in restricted viewing seats so did have to lean forward a few times. Just one distraction - BAGGED SWEETS!!! Don't let folks take them in with them, they are so noisy!
I really loved the opera, it was amazing and totally a life experience. I would recomend everyone to see it!
Kieran Brown Triumphs as the Phantom by Linda
I've always loved PotO but when my friend got a place in the Swing I was keen to go. When he got his first Phantom night, I HAD to go that night! Got my ticket thro BoT and it was brilliant - middle of third stalls row. Not cheap, but better than face value and perfect placement to really see the actors expressions, and be terrified by the chandelier!
Spectacular by Magda
Me and my 18year old daughter were more than impressed!
Addicted to Phantom by Stacey
I love Phantom of the Opera! I see it every time I go to London (this was my sixth time)! If you're sitting in the balcony, take binoculars, and be prepared for a climb. Also, don't expect a lot of leg room. But, you'll be so swept up in the beautiful music, you'll forget all about the cramped quarters, and you'll never want the show to end. Don't rush out when it's over; stay and listen to the orchestra. You won't regret it!
Go Phantom, great show! by Kelvin
We attended as a family 2 Adults and 2 teenagers 19 & 16 we all really enjoyed the show.
Outstanding by Urszula
The show is really outstanding and do not compare to any other in London. Try to be quite as you might upset other which come to enjoy the show how they should. Theater etiquette should be red with understanding before attending any show.

The Phantom of the Opera by Tracy
Fabulous show! A great casting performance!
Fantastic show by Jill
I have seen Phantom twice before, but the magic of the whole show never fails to enthrall me. The music draws you in, the effects are superb and the whole experience is mesmerising. A highly recommended performance - a must see for all theatre goers. The current cast are excellent and made it feel like the first time. Can't recommend highly enough.
Long time no see by Ken
Twenty years since I visited London, so my night at the theatre was important. The show lived up to expectations, even if I didn't quite keep up with all the characters. Having seen some of the scenes on TV over the years, I was surprised at the compact setting of the theatre and wondered how they would get it all in! However, the intimacy of the show environment, and the awareness of being in a live performance was really enjoyable. Loved the ball scene and the Phantom's part in it; really empowered the time he was there, and what an exit! Was amazed at how so many scene changes were used throughout the show; so clever, and a well done to all behind the scenery. Would definitely recommend this as a good night out. All the members put in a big effort, and was impressed by many of the supporting cast. It just wasn't the Phantom. Nice touch with the chandelier. Careful when choosing your seat, as some are behind a post or two. If you can, get a front row balcony seat, as I was a few rows back, and only just had a complete view to the front edge of the stage. Very enjoyable, and a great night out, but with the number of years it has been showing, who am I to argue.
Brilliant show by Jas
Excellent performance, rich and powerful voice.
Best staging by Tuuliki
Actors are very good, but the staging is great! All decorations and lighting help to show the story in the best way.

great by Amy
Spend the extra money to get a good view as the view was not always the greatest where we sat
The Phantom by Michael
I went to see the show alone due to recently losing my partner and as a means of picking myself up and giving my life a start again. I can simply say that the Phantom had everything that I needed to give the spark back to life.
We loved it so much
Concerning Music, Beauty and Love... by Chiara
Second time, first with my love, sheer magic! Pity that just one minute of delay cost us the whole first scene, there are no screens nor other ways to have a first look for the latecomers, the visitors will better take care... and enjoy a story of a heartbreaking beauty played so marvellously that it inspired my love to write a shockingly beautiful short poem for me just hours later. Now, that's Art!
Fifth or sixth time by Connie
Among the best ever. Seen the show multiple times in London. New York and boston. Would see it again
A night to Remember by Ann
An excellent nights entertainment and one that will stay in your memory for a long time to come. Go with an open mind, sit back, relax and enjoy the whole experience.
