The Phantom of the Opera, is based on Gaston Leroux’s gothic novel of life beneath the stage of the Paris Opera. Here a mysterious masked man falls in love with a Christine, a singer who inspires “the music of the night”.
If you are looking for the ultimate theatre package then a The Phantom of the opera Theatre Break is it. It is romantic, dramatic, and the music is superb and the staging lavish. One day, when (if?) it closes, you don’t want to be the person who says “I never saw it – wish I had!”
Phantom of the Opera and Hotels
There are some great nearby hotels to use as a base for a theatre break to see The Phantom of the Opera. It is also really easy to get to from anywhere in London as His Majesty’s Theatre is just by Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square.
If you do want to be nearby though, then the 4* Radisson Edwardian Leicester Square and its sister hotel the 5* Radisson Edwardian Hampshire are both nearby. Thistle Hotels offers the Thistle Piccadilly and the Trafalgar Square Hotel. Another 5 star is the Le Meridien just the other side of Piccadilly Circus.
Further afield, or if you want to be based in another part of London and come into Theatreland for the evening, any hotel on the Piccadilly Line, Northern Line, Victoria Line and Bakerloo line would be within easy access. There really is lots to choose from. Look at Bloomsbury and the area around the British Museum with a great choice of townhouse hotels. It is handy for Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross railway stations if you have started your theatre break by rail.

A wonderful two days in London with my Mum to fulfill her dream of seeing Phantom of the Opera. We were not disappointed - everything went perfectly to plan, the hotel was lovely and we had excellent seats in the theatre. I would recommend this Theatre Break to anyone.
I took my daughter to see The Phantom of the Opera for some mother and daughter time as part of a London shopping trip. I could not fault this at all. It was amazing and my daughter was blown away. apart from sounding amazing it all looked so beautiful - especially the Maquarade scene in act two. Christine's voice was lovely.
