Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera is coming to the Liverpool Empire.
It will be performed from February 20 to March 9, 2013. The last time the musical was seen in the city was 14 years ago. Tickets will go on pre-sale to ATG theatre card holders on June 8 and on general sale to the public on June 12.
Andrew Rawlinson, general manager of the Empire Theatre said: "I’m thrilled that The Phantom of the Opera is returning to the Empire. It’s a stunning new production that we are proud to be bringing to Liverpool. "The Phantom of the Opera is such a well-loved musical, I know the show will be just as popular with the people of Liverpool as it was when the musical was here 14 years ago.
"Anyone coming to see it is guaranteed to get something quite spectacular!”
Cameron Mackintosh said: “With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, you can surrender to the music of the night and fall in love with the Phantom in his new guise all over again.”
The spectacular new production of this legendary musical will star Earl Carpenter as ‘The Phantom’ Katie Hall as ‘Christine’ and Simon Bailey as ‘Raoul’.
Angela M. Caesar will star as ‘Carlotta’, Andy Hockley as ‘Monsieur Firmin’, Simon Green as ‘Monsieur Andre’, Elizabeth Marsh as ‘Madame Giry’, Vincent Pirillo as ‘Ubaldo Piangi’, Hannah Cadec as ‘Meg Giry’ and Olivia Brereton as ‘Christine’ at certain performances.
