The most popular and enduring musical of the 20th century, the Phantom of the Opera, comes to China, performed in English by a Western cast. The musical was written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who wrote a string of hits including Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Cats and Starlight Express. Phantom is based on a Gaston Leroux novel of 1911 about a beautiful soprano who becomes the obsession of a disfigured musical genius. It has been playing in London ever since it first opened in 1986, and on Broadway since 1988, and has been seen by millions of people in 145 countries. The original version is on a China tour and set to perform in Shanghai from August 27 until October 13.
