    Far beneath the majesty and splendor 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.
    This spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera is now on a broadway tour across North America!  Bigger and better than ever before, this production features brilliant new set designs, amazing original costumes, new choreograph and exciting special effects including the show’s legendary chandelier!
    The beloved story and thrilling score – with songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and “Masquerade” – will be performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this one of the largest productions now on tour.
