What You Can Expect

Phantom of the Opera Backstage Experience Including Tour, Pre-Theater Dinner and Show

Enjoy a backstage experience of Phantom of the Opera

Start your Phantom of the Opera experience at the stage door of the historical Her Majesty’s Theatre, deep in London’s theater district. Meet your guide who, as one of the show’s backstage crew, is bursting with fascinating facts about the production that began life in this very theater in October 1986. Retrace the steps of the glittering stars that have performed here, such as Ivor Novello, Vivienne Leigh and Michael Crawford, as you delve into the behind-the-scenes areas the public usually never sees.

On your walking tour around backstage areas such as the dressing rooms and rehearsal areas, discover how the show is produced and hear about some of the amusing moments and mishaps that make theater life so colorful. Learn, too, about the history of this much-loved theater that dates back to 1705!

After your tour, head to the nearby Grace Bar restaurant in the heart of London’s theater district for a light, pre-show dinner. Tuck into your delicious 2-course meal with the rest of your group, perhaps swapping insights about your backstage tour and relishing the theater experience ahead. See the Itinerary for a sample menu.

Walk the short distance back to the theater and take your seat for a thrilling evening performance of the show. Settle in to the dress circle or stalls as the anticipation builds in the auditorium. Then, watch entranced as the tragic story of the Phantom of the Opera dramatically unfolds before your eyes. With your backstage discoveries bringing an extra dimension to the whole experience, immerse yourself in this compelling masterpiece that was based on a Gothic novel. Lose yourself in the tear-jerking plot and magical songs, enjoying showstoppers such as Music of the Night and the classic Phantom of the Opera.

Your experience ends after the show when you leave the theater and make your own journey home.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

This is a must-see show, and adding a backstage tour to it makes it a very worthwhile experience. The tour includes an overview to London's musical and theatre history, which sets the scene for the show. Phantom is thrilling and engaging, beautifully performed, and having seen the backstage before hand adds a lot of credit to it. The theatre itself is a listed building so it's very interesting to see the modifications that Lloyd Webber and his team have had to make for the show, while respecting the original construction. If you are musical lover, you can't miss it.
