Jonathan Roxmouth and Meghan Picerno, as the Phantom and
Christine, perform an excerpt from “Music of the Night.”

The Asian tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera,” the world’s most popular musical, will return to Manila and run Feb. 20 to March 31 at The Theatre at Solaire.

The play is based on the classic novel “Le Fantome de L’Opera,” by Gaston Leroux, which follows the story of Christine, who becomes the object of the Phantom’s desire. It is a story of love, passion, jealousy and madness that takes the audience on an exhilarating and emotional ride.
