Opera de Monte-Carlo announces end of year production: Phantom of the Opera!

The world’s most famous musical, Phantom of the Opera, is being revisted in its original form by the Opera de Monte-Carlo for a series of exceptional performances this December. 

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical version of The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most successful pieces of entertainment of all time. It’s been played to over 145 million people in 183 cities around the world, and although it is set in Paris and is based on a 1910 French novel, there has never been an official musical performance in France or Monaco.

Now, the Opera de Monte-Carlo is set to present a new production in its original version with orchestra for the 2023 end-of-year celebrations.

The Phantom of the Opera tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius who haunts the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of the young soprano Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her.

In these 20 exceptional performances at the Monte-Carlo Opera – the only theatre designed by Charles Garnier apart from the Parisian hall where the action takes place – Ramin Karimloo will play The Phantom. Recognised worldwide as one of the best Phantoms and nominated for the Oliver and Tony Awards, Ramin Karimloo will return to the role he has already performed in London, Korea and during the 25th anniversary concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Alongside him will be Amelia Milo, a young Italian-American soprano discovered by Andrea Bocelli, who will perform the role of Christine Daaé.

Phantom of the Opera by the Opera de Monte-Carlo will be performed from 16th to 31st December. Tickets start from 40€ and can be purchased by clicking here.
