The 19th century period spectacle, scenic legerdemain, soaring melodies and exceptional singing are at the service of an involving and piquantly offbeat love story, all of it staged with brilliantly organized flair by Harold Prince.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical version of the fable about the masked man who haunts the Paris Opera is a longing look back at the stagecraft, the scene of wonder, theater had a century ago.It is a spectacular entertainment, visually the most impressive of the British musicals. Perhaps the most old-fashioned thing about it is it’s a love story, something Broadway has not seen for quite a while.
