Don't miss the brilliant original production in Edinburgh

STATEMENT FROM CAMERON MACKINTOSH AND THE REALLY USEFUL GROUP

It is with great sadness that due to the current state of complete shutdown of the British theatre by the Government because of Covid-19, Cameron Mackintosh and The Really Useful Group must announce that their new UK Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom Of The Opera”, which had only played its opening date prior to a 14 month tour, will not re-open.

The great uncertainty around the duration of social distancing requirements and the perilous financial situation in which many of the UK’s regional theatres find themselves have conspired to make re-routing an entire major tour like Phantom impossible for some time as so many existing tours are needing to reschedule.

The production opened at Curve, Leicester at the beginning of March. Subsequent runs in Manchester and Dublin have already been cancelled. Following these dates, the tour was due to play Birmingham, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton and Bradford.

Whilst it is heart breaking for us as producers as well as for our wonderful cast, orchestra and crew who had all worked so hard to create this truly spectacular but tragically short-lived reinvented staging of the original production, we are determined that the disappearance of the “Phantom” from the British regional stage will not be forever and that when Theatre is back thrilling audiences  again the “Music Of The Night” will soar once more from the orchestra pit.

Ticket holders will be contacted directly by email.

The Phantom of the Opera

Now in its 33rd phenomenal year in the West End, The Phantom of the Opera is widely considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular productions in history. The romantic, haunting and soaring score includes Music of the Night, All I Ask of You, Masquerade and of course the iconic title number.

The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most successful musicals in history playing to over 145 million people in 41 countries and 183 cities in 17 languages. It has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including 7 Tony Awards and 4 Olivier Awards.
