Phantom Of The Opera is returning to the Palace Theatre, Manchester from March 26 to May 30 next year.

It is one of the most successful musicals in entertainment history playing to more than 145 million people in 41 countries and 183 cities in 17 languages. It has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards.

It tells the tale 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 protégé and falls fiercely in love with her.
