Andrew Lloyd Weber's glittering musical is one of the most widely-seen shows of theatre. It first opened in the West End in 1986, travelling to Broadway in 1988 and becoming the district's longest-running show. With an Olivier and Tony award for 'Best Musical', the show is a staple among theatre-goers everywhere. The Phantom of the Opera has sold over $5.6 billion of tickets worldwide, retelling Gastron Leroux's stunning novel to audiences across the globe.

The French novel centres around a beautiful soprano, Christine who performs at the Paris Opera House. Beneath the dazzle and majesty of the theatre lurks the Phantom, who quickly becomes enchanted by Christine. Wearing a mask to disguise his disfigurement, he appears before her each night to help train her. But when Christine falls for another, the Phantom's feelings quickly transpire to obsession and jealousy. What will he do to keep Christine his?

The music behind the haunting story features theatre's most unforgettable tracks. 'Phantom of the Opera' reached number 7 in the UK charts just before the production made its debut. It is now immortalised in pop culture, making it an iconic scene from the show. Other big numbers powerfully played out on stage include 'All I Ask of You' and 'The Music of the Night'.

Ever since Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman stepped on stage as the Phantom and Christine in 1986, audiences have been nothing but mesmerised by the spellbinding show. When Andrew Lloyd Webber partnered with 'Cats' producer Cameron Mackintosh, they wanted to transform Lerouz's novel into an epic romance, brimming with dark passion. Over three decades on, tickets to see the Phantom of the Opera still fly from box offices. With a hypnotic soundtrack, it perhaps one of the greatest tragic love stories ever told.

Venue Details

The Sunderland Empire is the North East of England’s flagship theatre. This beautiful Edwardian venue is one of the region’s largest theatres, capable of squeezing in up to 2,200 people. The Sunderland Empire serves as an excellent variety entertainment venue, hosting everything from theatre, dance, comedy and touring musicals.

The Sunderland Empire was officially opened in 1907 by variety and vaudeville star Vesta Tilley. Owners Richard Thorton and Edward Moss aimed to open up theatres to working class people in the region, and this was the target audience of the Sunderland Empire.

As theatre declined with the rise of television and cinema, the Sunderland Empire was taken over by Sunderland City Council who managed to keep the venue afloat. The Sunderland Empire re-opened in 1960 and played host to numerous important performances, including a visit by The Beatles during their first UK national tour.

In the early 2000s the Sunderland Empire’s operators changed hands again and the venue underwent a multi-million pound refurbishment. The upgrades to the Sunderland Empire mean that it is proudly the only theatre between Edinburgh and Manchester capable of staging large West End productions, something it has done often since - Starlight Express, Miss Saigon and Footloose have all been performed there.
