Phantom of the Opera’s 25th Birthday at Royal Albert Hall

The Royal Albert Hall in London is set to host the 25th anniversary celebrations of The Phantom of the Opera this October.  The show’s original choreographer Gillian Lynne is staging the show and lighting will be designed by Patrick Woodroffe, who recently worked on the Les Mis 02 concerts. The concert will be produced by Cameron Mackintosh and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group.

Full details of the event have yet to be announced, but sources claim it will be a “completely new production”. Nicholas Allott from Cameron Mackintosh Ltd said full details would be announced “within the next three weeks”.

No date has been confirmed yet, but there is a clue with no performances on sale at Her Majestys between 7th-10th October!

Ramin Karimloo has already confirmed that he is playing the Phantom, and it is also understood that Sierra Boggess is coming back from New York to reprise the role of Christine Daae.  She played the eponymous heroine in the Las Vegas production in 2006, and also in Love Never Dies starring with Karimloo until she left in March this year.
