“Very disappointing”

Written on: 18/01/2014

Just a short review. I love the theatre and go regularly but have never seen this one before. After listening to friends over the years, rave about this show I was very excited to go. I believe my expectations were too high and I was extremely disappointed. I thought the theatre shabby, the seats extremely uncomfortable unless you are very short as there was next to no leg room. I was surprised at how small the theatre was too. I would recommend other shows… Read Full Review

“Unbelievably disappointing”

Written on: 30/01/2013

I was excited to be able to watch the Phantom of the Opera in London, which I loved during it tour in Singapore a few years back. However, I was disappointed with the show in London and was close to falling asleep throughout the performance. The Phantom was nowhere imposing and Raoul sang without much emotions. Christine was passable but forgettable. I did spot quite a few people picking up their coats during the interval and leaving while a number of people who stayed after the intervals… Read Full Review

“Opening night of Phantom in Cardiff - Hope it improves”

Written on: 06/12/2012

Got completely lost to begin with. Make the most of the early sight of the chandelier - it's all you get. The new set is eerie and very dark. I realise that it is difficult to change an accepted format, but for those who have seen the original show, this is disappointing. Christine is brilliant. However, (I know this isn't important in a musical), Raoul is too short and not very convincing as Christine's partner. First night, I know, but the Phantom is not nearly frightening enough… Read Full Review

“VERY DISAPPOINTING REVAMP”

Written on: 11/04/2012 by jefferson21 (1 review written)

VERY DISAPPOINTING, having seen the show twice previously, i have just watched the new production in Manchester 6th April 2012 and they have completely destroyed the revamped version with the new sets starting with no rise and fall of the chandelier, A disaster beyond your imagination which proved to be like a wet sparkle fizzing boringly, No staircase for the masquarade, Poor effort on the cemetary scene and whatever happened to the initial trip down to the labyrinth with the gondoler. The… Read Full Review

“Phantom 25th Anniversary ”

Written on: 05/03/2012 by marcus1962 (1 review written)

Hello There are very few things that can actually make you feel the spine tingling sensation. I have listened to the music, seen the film and watched the interviews with Micheal Crawford and co. For me this has a special magic, very much like Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds. Would the real thing stand up to what I had already heard? I have said this before but I will say it again. From the start it was spine tingling, amazing, loud and wonderful. There was a full 23 piece orchestra who put… Read Full Review

A pathetic attempt at serious opera, fed of the fact that no-one in the audience had ever been to the theatre before. I sat surrounded by tourists… Read Full Review

Creweblue's Comment

Written on: 11/12/2010

I found this review not helpful because the writer obviously considers him/herself a cut above mere mortals when it comes to enjoying a theater production. I would question whether anyone would go to see the Phantom expecting a serious opera production. I think the snobbery is misplaced and unhelpful.

Tourists pay our wages and help subsidise the Arts making it possible for you to go to the theatre

“The Phantom of the Opera ”

Written on: 12/11/2010 by LucyPorter (1 review written)

The Phantom of the Opera

What did you do?
On 10th November I watched the Phantom of the Opera in Her Majesty's Theatre in London. This was the evening performance and I sat in the Royal Circle part of the audience, along with my sister and parents. We travelled by train and then the underground and we then walked to find the theatre which was very grand and ornate. The show consisted of two acts with an interval in between and it was approximately two and a half hours in total and this time… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2007 by the viceroy (1 review written)

Although the musical is a gothic romance, the show is not in the slightest sloppy. The music and singing detracts your attention from the romance and keeps the show strong and not at all depressing but strangely uplifting. Once you've seen the show you'll want to see it again and again. I recommend this show for everyone, a truly amazing performance… Read Full Review
