The longest-running musical in Broadway history, this Andrew Llyod Webber musical has become a staple of contemporary musical theater.
The Phantom of the Opera wants Christine to be the star of the opera. He gives her lessons, writes an opera for her, and threatens those in charge; but Christine is in love with another man and the theatre managers do not take nicely to his threats. They agree to go along with his opera, hoping to catch him, but everything goes wrong, and the Phantom leaves Christine a choice - stay with him or the love of her life dies.
