1. How Much are Phantom of the Opera Tickets?

Andrew Lloyd Webber is well-known for his musicals, racking up a huge worldwide following with people from all over the world travelling far to see his best-known work. The famous musical, The Phantom of the Opera, has been wowing audiences since its opening in the West End over 37 years ago! Due to the popularity of the show, tickets start as little as £25 and can reach highs of over £200. 

There are a few ways to grab cheap tickets to The Phantom of the Opera, including promotions such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales, Day Seats and comparing prices. The musical isn’t always included in promotions, especially during peak visiting times such as weekends and bank holidays, but it is always worth checking!

Not sure how to find discounted Phantom of the Opera tickets? No worries - we have you covered! We have pulled together a comprehensive guide to finding the best seats within your budget below. 

2. When Should I Book Tickets for Phantom of the Opera?

The musical typically has good availability a few weeks out, however, if you’re hoping to see it over the weekend or a bank holiday, we recommend booking in advance as these dates usually sell out earlier and prices can get pretty steep. 

Booking an off-peak performance on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday can help save you money on tickets. This is due to mid-week performances being up to 14% cheaper than weekend tickets, which is a great saving if you’re flexible with when you can visit. 

You can’t always find discounted Phantom of the Opera tickets but we recommend checking seasonal promotions, such as London Theatre Week and New Year’s Sales, as you may be able to catch a discount for the show throughout the year. 

3. How Do I Get Last Minute Phantom of the Opera Tickets?

If you’re looking for cheap last-minute Phantom of the Opera tickets, there’s a whole range of ways you can find them. If you’re already in Central London, we recommend heading to the TKTS booth in Leicester Square or heading directly to the theatre’s box office. If you’re not in London - no worries! You can check the TKTS online listings for same-day ticket discounts. 

The theatre has a Day Seat offer where you have the chance to grab 1 or 2 tickets starting from £37.50. There’s only a limited number of tickets that are released every morning of a performance at 10am, so you’ll need to be quick! You can find out more information about Phantom of the Opera Day Seats here.

The box office might discount unsold tickets on the day of a performance. At the time of writing, Stalls H35 for tonight’s performance costs £79.50. The same seat for next week’s performance is priced at £95. That’s a saving of 19%!

Keep in mind that this might only happen occasionally, especially for cheaper-priced tickets and during peak visiting times, such as weekends and bank holidays. We recommend booking ahead to avoid disappointment on the day, especially if The Phantom of the Opera is a must-do for you when visiting London. It’s best to research ticket prices beforehand to ensure you’re getting the best prices. 

4. Where Should I Sit at Phantom of the Opera?

Knowing where to sit within your budget when booking theatre tickets can be one of the hardest parts. Seats in the Stalls can be some of the best seats, like Stalls D20, however, these can come with a hefty price tag.

So, we’ve pulled together a list of the top 5 seats at His Majesty’s Theatre for under £60. All of these seat views have been left by real people and are rated 4 stars or above on SeatPlan. 

Insider Tip: Check SeatPlan’s His Majesty’s Theatre seating plan when you book. Theatregoers have added their photos of the stage and ratings for seats across the auditorium to help you book. 

  1. Grand Circle A8 (from £57.50) offers a great view from the front row of the third tier of the theatre. Legroom isn’t plentiful here, so bear this in mind before booking.

5. How To Get Cheap Phantom of the Opera Matinee Tickets

The musical has two matinees per week on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with both afternoon performances starting at 2.30pm.  

We recommend booking tickets to a Wednesday matinee if you’re flexible with when you can visit the theatre as these tickets are typically cheaper than a Saturday matinee performance. At the time of writing, a Wednesday matinee in May for Stalls F21 costs £125. A few days later, the same seats for Saturday’s matinee costs £200. That’s a saving of 60%!

9. About the Phantom of the Opera Venue

The Phantom of the Opera is currently playing at His Majesty’s Theatre, which is a short walk from Piccadilly Circus and Charing Cross tube stations. Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations are just over a 10-minute walk away from the theatre.

As the theatre is centrally located, there’s a range of restaurants and shops in the surrounding area. From high-dining to fast food restaurants, there’s something for everyone. If you want a sit-down meal before the show, we recommend booking in advance as restaurants in the surrounding area can get busy pretty quickly during peak visiting hours. 

The theatre has 5 bars across 4 floors, where you can purchase soft and alcoholic drinks as well as sweet and savoury snacks. You can take your own drinks and snacks into the auditorium as long as they’re in plastic containers, however, no hot food is allowed. 

Doors open 60 minutes before the performance starts and we recommend arriving at least half an hour beforehand to ensure you have plenty of time to explore the theatre and all it has on offer. The musical is 2 hours and 30 minutes long, including a short interval. It’s a good idea to remember this, especially when travelling home in the evening after the performance.
