Booking & Theatre Info For The Phantom Of The Opera

His Majesty’s Theatre is a fairly large and historic West End theatre that has four levels of seating and a capacity of 1231 seats and has recently been renamed following the coronation of King Charles III.

The seating blocks within the venue are quite shallow and feature numerous obstructions due to support pillars, rails, and overhangs from upper levels. Many seats within the venue restrict the view of the famous falling chandelier, however, this scene lasts for just a couple of seconds and some of these seats offer clear views for the rest of the production and can be considered to be good value despite having a ‘restricted view’ and will suit bargain hunters looking for cheap Phantom Of The Opera tickets and lastminute bargains.

Premium seats in the theatre are located in the centre of the Stalls along with the front rows of the Royal Circle which is an excellent vantage point and guarantees that none of the action on stage will be missed.

Due to the number of seats in the theatre that are labelled as having a restricted view, it is highly recommended to study the seating plan before purchase to survey the severity of the restriction. Seats in the Grand Circle are usually cheaper than the other tiers and there are fewer restrictions in this area. Balcony seats in the fourth tier are very high up and feel quite distant from the stage which is reflected in the price but these may not be suitable for people who suffer from vertigo.
