Inspired by the original staging by Hal Prince and Gillian Lynne, this lavish, fully-staged production set in the sumptuous Victorian splendour of London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall features a cast and orchestra of over 200, plus some very special guest appearances.

I saw the musical in Montreal back in 1992-93 and I went recently see a choral show where they sang songs from Broadway musicals. Then, I realize how much I wanted to see it again and sang along. As much, I appreciated the movie with Gerard Butler. The musical is simply superior. The emotions are so stronger. One of my favorites is time of the masquerade, but my most favorite is when the Phantom screams Christine. Bring the box of tissues. This being said. I can't wait to watch it tonight. Will probably watch it over and over.

What an absolute thrill to now own a copy of the stage production of the Phantom of the Opera. I have attended several live performances over the years in Toronto and keep going back if and when a tour passes through my city. I had always said why don`t they make a video of the Phantom of the Opera. Frankly, the movie version did not cut it for me due to casting Gerard Butler as the Phantom. He cannot sing, but it simply had to do until this one came out. I have all the CD recordings (Broadway, London, Canadian) and hesitate to compare the cast with the 25th Royal Albert Hall production, but they are all simply outstanding including the ones appearing in this DVD. I have already pre-ordered Love Never Dies waiting for the May 2012 release so I will have the entire story. The close ups in the DVD make you feel you are right there with them on stage. What also makes it so special is the emotions you not only see. but can feel in the faces of the cast. If you are truly a Phantom of the Opera fan, this recording is a must for your collection. I hope we see more video recordings of the great musicals. There are a few out there, but I want them all.

Re. B. Szabo's comments on audio quality, see below from the Blu-Ray.Com review of this DVD at [...]

Universal regularly does some frankly screwy things with their audio options on their music or concert titles, regularly having their Blu-ray discs default to Dolby Digital 5.1 tracks, and then having what most home theater aficionados are probably going to want, a lossless 5.1 option (usually DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1), as the third choice. Phantom of the Opera at The Royal Albert Hall 25th Anniversary ups that oddness on two levels: first, the disc defaults to a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix, and then, even more peculiarly, the disc does not allow easy toggling to the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that is included. Instead you need to either go back to the Main Menu or the Pop-Up Menu and access Setup and make the appropriate audio choice there. That slight difficulty aside, for the most part the 5.1 track is incredibly well rendered, at least after the main singing gets underway. For some reason the Prologue is mixed rather low (or was inadequately miked), and the Auctioneer is a bit hard to hear. Once the main thrust of the show gets underway, the DTS- HD Master Audio 5.1 track easily supports everything from the coloratura warbling to the synth-laden moments of the score. Balance is excellent between the orchestra and the singers and The Royal Albert Hall's natural ambience is caught magnificently on this track.

Don't really know what to think of this. Everyone just sounds extra angry and angsty on this version. Sound is not even either, most likely due to how it was recorded. At some parts sound drops off. Some parts are rushed, singers sing through some parts very fast (time constraints?) and the orchestra has to hurry to catch up.

Does not do the singers justice at all, as I've heard Ramin Karimloo in person and on various other CDs (omg he is amazing let me say).

Raoul sounds like an abusive ragey type (no wonder his character is such a douche in Love Never Dies). Christine is whiny and her English accent....I mean I'm Canadian and my ears cringed. Makes me want to shake her.

FYI, I've been listening to the original recording since the early 90's (props to my CD cuz I have no idea how that thing has lasted through weekly usage for the past 20+ years). I don't think I'm too biased though, since I've also seen POTO live several times in various countries and loved most of them.

TL;DR Everyone is angry here, stick to the original cast recording

We bought this DVD after having seen the same version aired on TV. Well worth it, nice sound, great production, and wonderful surprises at the end of the performance! Had me spellbound. If you've ever liked the Phantom, this version is a must-see.

What a wonderful uplifting experience watching this has been!!! Wow!!! from the moment this starts to the end, you're taken on an amazing journey of sheer wonder and enjoyment!! Wonderfully filmed, this is an amazing production..All but the actress who plays Meg are spot on..I felt the actress was a bit too old for the role, though did a great job..I have seen it on stage and the movie version - which became my favourite movie of all time - surpassing my other favourites from the golden era of Hollywood..Andrew's 'phantom' makes sense of the love between the phantom and Christine and then Raol..This Raol I preferred over the movie one, who was a bit 'weak'..This Raol had all the bravado of a young rich man and could comfortably go up against the phantom..some scenes were different from the movie, but never took away from the wonderful story etc..The end where four previous phantoms, the original Christine and the phantom from this production, come together is soo uplifting!!! really brings together everything soo well!!! makes you feel soo good and you cant wait to go back to the theatre - reinvigorates/reinforces how wonderful musical theatre is, and the talent that it has...soo wonderfully done!!!! We love Anthony Warlow, the youngest at the time to play the phantom and was the phantom at the far left...If you love this kind of male singing..then, get Anthony's cd - the best of act one - pure incredible male singing - and he as a huge range and talent..I'd also recommend 'The Main Event' DVD and CD, staring Anthony Warlow, Olivia Newton John and John Farnham..if you want fun wonderful singing and interaction..these three stars, sing by themselves, in pairs and all three...pure rollicking entertainment!!! Also, the filmed stage productions of 'love never dies' - explains what happened to the phantom etc - soo well done, and Oklahoma - starring Hugh Jackman...I own all of these...and they're all soo uplifting, entertaining, you cant go wrong!!! Enjoy!!!
