Today, June 1, 2022, a brand-new recording of the song THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA from the hit musical of the same name by composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has landed on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and all major streaming platforms. The release features the vocals of Killian Donnelly as the Phantom and Lucy St. Louis as Christine, who are currently performing in the West End cast at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
This release comes as THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is set to be part of the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace celebrations on June 4th.
THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is widely considered one of the most beautiful and spectacular productions in history. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s romantic, haunting and soaring score includes “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask of You,” “Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again,” “Masquerade” and the iconic title song. It tells the tale of a disfigured musical genius known only as ‘The Phantom’ who haunts the depths of the Paris Opera House. Mesmerised by the talents and beauty of a young soprano – Christine, the Phantom lures her as his protégé and falls fiercely in love with her. Unaware of Christine’s love for Raoul, the Phantom’s obsession sets the scene for a dramatic turn of events where jealousy, madness and passions collide.
One of the most successful musicals in entertainment history, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has played to over 145 million people in 41 countries and 183 cities in 17 languages. It has won more than 70 major theatre awards, including seven Tony Awards and four Olivier Awards. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA has celebrated over 34 years on both sides of the Atlantic with the show in London now in its 36th year. THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA at Her Majesty’s Theatre is currently booking until 1 October 1, 2022.
