About The Phantom of the Opera
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA enters its fourth decade having played 12,500 performances to 18 million people at The Majestic Theatre (247 West 44th Street), and having grossed a staggering more than $1.1 billion. PHANTOM has been Broadway’s longest-running show for more than a decade and its astounding longevity in New York and around the world is unprecedented.
Leading the 30th Anniversary cast is international stage star and Platinum-selling Swedish recording artist Peter Jöback. One of Sweden’s most prolific and respected artists, Mr. Jöback has earned rave reviews and ignited the box office for his performance as ‘The Phantom’ in London (2012), New York (2013) and two sold out engagements in his native Stockholm (2016). Mr. Jöback’s strictly limited return is through Saturday, March 31.
Mr. Jöback stars with Ali Ewoldt as ‘Christine’ and Rodney Ingram as ‘Raoul.’ Ms. Ewoldt made history in June 2016 when she became the first Asian-American actress to play the role of ‘Christine.’ Mr. Ingram, a dual citizen of the United State and Mexico, made headlines in April 2017 when he joined the cast as ‘Raoul.’
The musical also co-stars Laird Mackintosh as ‘Monsieur André,’ Craig Bennett as ‘Monsieur Firmin,’ Raquel Suarez Groen as ‘Carlotta,’ Carlton Moe as ‘Piangi,’ Maree Johnson as ‘Madame Giry’ and Kara Klein as ‘Meg Giry.’ At certain performances, Kaley Ann Voorhees plays the role of ‘Christine.’
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.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group, has music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and is directed by Harold Prince. Lyrics are by Charles Hart (with additional lyrics by Richard Stilgoe) and the book is by Richard Stilgoe and Andrew Lloyd Webber. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has production design by the late Maria Björnson, lighting by Andrew Bridge and sound design by Mick Potter with original sound by Martin Levan. Musical staging and choreography is by Gillian Lynne. Orchestrations are by David Cullen and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
