Last chance to see The Phantom of the Opera in Monaco 

Never before seen on a French or Monegasque stage, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic ‘The Phantom of the Monaco’ premiered at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo on 16th December to a full house that included Prince Albert II of Monaco and Princess Caroline.

Prince Albert and Princess Caroline, along with Minister of State Pierre Dartout and other Monaco dignitaries, were among those who turned out on the opening night of the “world’s most famous” musical, which will be performed a total of 20 times in Monaco over the holiday season.

After the show, Prince Albert and Princess Caroline mingled with the performers and congratulated the Opéra’s Director Cecilia Bartoli on the clear success of the Temple Live Entertainment Ltd and Broadway Italia SRL co-production.

The final performance is set to take place on New Year’s Eve at 8pm and the audience will be encouraged to dress up in their finest and don a mask suitable for a masquerade ball at the Palais Garnier.  

Those who missed out on tickets will be happy to hear that a few precious seats have become available for this ultimate performance. They each cost €280 and can be reserved via the Opéra de Monte-Carlo’s official ticket office.

There also appears to be a handful of seats available for the evening performance on Thursday 21st December.  

Last minute tickets do sometimes become available for this type of production and if you are an avid fan of the musical – and don’t mind waiting around outside – then you can always head down to the Opéra de Monte-Carlo in the hours before the performance to try your luck at the onsite ticket office.  

Whichever performance you choose, matinee or evening, be sure to snap up those seats quickly – The Phantom of the Opera in Monaco has been a near sell-out success!
