For nearly two decades, Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera has been weaving its magical spell over standing room audiences all around the world. Now this musical phenomenon is back at the Kennedy Center, featuring some of the most lavish sets, costumes, and special effects ever created for the stage.
Through one treasured song after another-- including "Angel of Music," "Masquerade," and the thrilling title number--the tragic love story unfolds between a shadowy, disfigured composer and his muse, a beautiful opera singer. This eagerly anticipated summer spectacular is sure to sell out!
