The Phantom with Christine

First published in Theatre

CAMERON Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success The Phantom of the Opera arrives at Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre on Wednesday as part of its national tour.

The production stars Earl Carpenter in the role of The Phantom and Katie Hall who will play the role of Christine. With a brilliant new design by Paul Brown, costumes by the much missed Maria Björnson, a new staging by Laurence Connor, director of the recent acclaimed 25th anniversary celebration at the Royal Albert Hall and with new choreography by Scott Ambler. Lighting design is by Paule Constable and sound design by Mick Potter. The production is overseen by Cameron Mackintosh and Matthew Bourne.

Far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House, hides the Phantom in a shadowy existence. Shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, the love he holds for his beautiful protégée Christine Daaé is so strong that even her heart cannot resist.

Performances take place until Saturday, February 16. Tickets are available from the box office on 02380 711811 or online at
