Broadway’s longest-running production of all time celebrates a triumphant quarter century on stage with The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, coming to Blu-ray – with perfect hi-def picture and perfect hi-def sound – DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on February 7, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.  On October 2, 2011, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer Cameron Mackintosh marked the 25th anniversary of their beloved musical extravaganza, “The Phantom of the Opera,” with a lavishly staged production at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall that was beamed live via satellite to cinemas across the globe. The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall marks the first time a live performance of the blockbuster musical has been made available for home viewing, making it a must-have anniversary release for fans everywhere. 

 “The Phantom of the Opera” premiered at Her Majesty's Theatre in London on October 9, 1986. It has won more than 60 major theatre awards, including seven Tony® Awards and three Olivier Awards, and became the longest-running show in Broadway history on January 9, 2006 when it celebrated its 7,486th performance. “The Phantom of the Opera” has grossed over $5.6 billion worldwide and been seen in 145 cities in 27 countries. Live productions of “The Phantom of the Opera” are currently playing in London, New York, Budapest, Las Vegas and Kyoto. 


Isn't it wonderful that this production can still be seen in all of its former glory? The story has become widely known for its whimsical, yet serious, mood-setting, storytelling. I find it to be almost Shakespearean in its plot, what with all of the madness and tragedy, you will laugh, cry, at first despise, and finally cheer for the phantom while watching this fabulous performance of the most successful theater production of all time. This story is one that can not be missed. There is a reason that it has grossed over 5 billion dollars in twenty five years, this performance (as seen at the Royal Albert Hall) delivers that reason in the form of an involved and experienced cast. I have always loved this story, and I finally had the chance to share it with my family. It is a classic that is most synonymous with good taste. Followers of theater probably have already picked this up, anyone who likes a good story should do the same. To not pick it up, would be missing out on perhaps the most important contribution to theater in its history.
