“The Phantom of the Opera” is based on a Gothic novel that takes place at the Royal Opera in Paris and tells of the tragic love of the phantom, a musical genius with a distorted exterior, to a young opera singer. The enchanting music combines rock, classical music and a light opera. It is sung by a variety of singers and accompanied by large number of dancers; all colourfully dressed up with a spectacular set of changing scenery.

The show will arrive here as part of its International tour that will be playing in Singapore, Manilla, Malaysia, Abu Dhabi, etc. Moshe Yosef, the producer of the musical in Israel, claims that it’s the production is probably the biggest ever brought to Israel. It will take 5 days to assemble its 24 sets of scenery and two days to pack  them back!

“The Phantom of the Opera” will be performed in the Israeli Opera House this summer, starting August 12, 2019 for 8 times during 5 days and ticket prices will range from NIS 199-699 but discounts from credit cards and consumer clubs are available. Some of the shows are already sold out!
