The Phantom of the Opera, known to be Broadway's biggest hit, has finally returned to Manila seven years after it last made its run here!
Running from February 20 until March 31 at The Theatre at Solaire, The Phantom of the Opera centers on a masked musical genius known as the Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House. He then meets a young and beautiful soprano named Christine, lures her to become his protége, and falls in love with her. His love then becomes an obsession, setting off a story of jealousy, madness, and passion.

The production features the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the lyrics of Charles Hart, and the book written by Webber and Richard Stilgoe. It won numerous awards in the theater scene, including the Best Musical at the Tony and Olivier Awards for its first Broadway and West End productions. It's also known to be the longest running show on Broadway.
At the media call held last February 26th, the cast of the show performed well-loved songs and numbers from the musical like "All I Ask of You", and "Masquerade". Check out the clips below:
