The Phantom Of The Opera in Singapore


The world’s most successful and longest-running show on Broadway – THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is returning to Singapore. The award-winning musical is set to take Singapore by storm when the show opens on 16 July for a strictly limited season at The MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands. Canon is the presenting sponsor of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, continuing its support for top quality musicals staged in Singapore.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s critically acclaimed masterpiece is now enjoying its 27th year on the West End
stage, and its 26th year on Broadway, and continues to play to full houses around the world. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has been seen by over 130 million people worldwide, in more than 27 countries, has grossed more than US$5.6 billion and has won over 50 major theatre awards.

Producer Kerry Comerford of The Really Useful Group said “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is an
exceptionally unique musical for so many reasons, and sits in a class of its own. It has received incredible acclaim over the years, and to this day remains unrivalled by other musicals in its world-wide successes.”

“This touring production of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is as fine as any version you might see on the West End or Broadway - it is the same exquisite design that the audience is familiar with, and we invest
a great deal to ensure it is of the highest standards. Our stellar cast assembles the industry’s best performers, with members coming from leading entertainment destinations of the world; UK, USA, Europe, Australia and South Africa. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has enjoyed huge success throughout the Asia-Pacific region, having experienced a sold-out season in Singapore in 2007 as well as Shanghai and Seoul, and I am confident that audiences in Singapore will welcome the return of this legendary musical.”

The Chief Executive of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, James Cundall, who is presenting THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in Singapore in conjunction with BASE Entertainment Asia, said “It is an enthralling show which epitomizes all that is great about musical theatre – an unbelievable score, a powerful story, lavish sets and costumes, and most importantly, an unforgettable experience. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a worldwide sensation which will take Singapore audiences on a spectacular journey.”



Mr. George Tanasijevich, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marina Bay Sands said, “THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a timeless Broadway classic. We are proud that one of the most respected musicals of all time joins the league of the other successful Broadway style shows we have brought to Singapore.”

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA 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 talent and beauty of a young soprano - Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, The Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.

With 130 cast, crew and orchestra members, jaw-dropping scenery, breathtaking special effects and more than 230 costumes by international designer, the late Maria Björnson, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA contains some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous and stirring music, including “The Phantom of the Opera”, “Music of the Night”, “Angel of Music” and “All I Ask of You”.The timeless, romantic and much-loved musical has been honoured with seven prestigious New York Tony Awards including Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards and three Olivier Awards.

The film of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA was released in 2004 and has thrilled cinema-goers around
the world, and a Las Vegas spectacular now in its sixth year continues to enthral audiences. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical is based upon the novel Le Fantome De L’Opera by Gaston Leroux. The original London production was produced by Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is produced in Singapore by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions, David Atkins Enterprises, and Base Entertainment in association with The Really Useful Group.
