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 labeled 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.

Are Phantom Of The Opera Tickets Expensive?

As His Majesty's Theatre has four tiers and also a lot of restricted and limited view seats there are multiple pricing structures on offer for this show making this a difficult question to answer! Tickets for Phantom Of The Opera usually start at around £25 in the Balcony and can go right up to around £200 for the best seats in the Stalls or Dress Circle on Saturdays in peak season making finding well-priced and/or good value tickets somewhat of a mission!

Do They Ever Discount Tickets To Phantom Of The Opera?

Yes, they do. Occasionally. Although it is one of the most successful musicals of all time there are still eight shows per week to fill for a show that has been playing in the same venue since 1986! Incredibly, demand for Phantom Of The Opera tickets is still as strong as ever but even with a show as popular as this one there will always be quiet weeks where bargains and discount tickets can be found if you look.

Are Midweek Matinees Cheaper?

They can be as long as you avoid school holidays. Thursday matinee tickets for the Phantom Of The Opera can often be the best value option for this show and discounts can sometimes be found especially in the quieter months such as November or February.

What Does R/V On The Ticket Mean?

If your ticket states that your seat is 'R/V' then there will be some kind of restriction or limited view. It is advisable therefore to check the seating plan before you buy any seats marked R/V as His Majesty's Theatre has many pillars in the Stalls and Dress Circle sections as well as overhangs from the different tiers which could affect your enjoyment of the show quite considerably.

Are Upper Circle Or Balcony Tickets Good Value?

Due to the layout of the theatre, many of the seats in these areas come with some form of restriction to the view. The seats in the centre of the Upper Circle mostly have a clear view and this does reflect in the price whereas the seats to the sides are much cheaper but although they do come with a small restriction, the prices are usually reasonable for these seats, and as there are no pillars in this section the view is not too bad from most of them. Seats in the Balcony section though are very high up and generally require someone to have 20/20 vision even if the seats are marked as clear view. It is very much recommended that you look at the seating plan before booking either Upper Circle or Balcony tickets to Phantom Of The Opera.

Is It Cheaper To Buy Phantom Of The Opera Tickets Online?

Not an easy question to answer! Even though it has been playing consistently for well over three decades, consumer demand for tickets to Phantom Of The Opera is still as strong as ever meaning that during busy weeks and at weekends all online ticket agencies will need to sell at face value plus a booking fee to make a profit so for peak periods it can be beneficial to buy tickets directly from the box office. In the quieter periods though, and for midweek performances and in particular the Thursday matinee there can often be online discounts to be had making it cheaper than buying directly from the theatre.

What Are Liability Tickets?

Occasionally some ticket agencies buy tickets from the theatre in advance at negotiated rates despite already having daily allocations. They do this to either offer extra value to the consumer by selling at a discount to the theatre or rival agencies or simply to make extra profit. Although this is a strategy that does work, it is not an exact science which means that on occasion they are left with a surplus of tickets that they struggle to offload which are known as 'liabilities'. For bargain hunters, this can present a golden opportunity as Phantom Of The Opera tickets, like any show are perishable products and the price can drop quite substantially in the final hour before the curtain goes up! It should be noted however that if you have your heart set on seeing the show on a certain day then this is not a good strategy as to be lucky and acquire liability tickets for a specific show is very much good fortune rather than shrewd planning!

Are All Ticket Agencies The Same?

The short answer to this is no! It is always advisable to use suppliers who are affiliated with or members of the Society Of London Theatre (SOLT) and the Society Of Ticket Agents And Retailers (STAR) as this will ensure that you get good service, transparent pricing, and peace of mind about your purchase. If booking Phantom Of The Opera tickets through retail outlets such as the shops in and around Leicester Square always ask whether they are 'official' vendors before you buy and when booking online always look for the SOLT and STAR icons on the website.

How Long Does Phantom Of The Opera Last?

The running time for Phantom Of The Opera is 2 hours 23 minutes which includes an interval.

Is There A Minimum Age Restriction To Watch Phantom Of The Opera In London?

The recommended minimum age to watch Phantom Of The Opera is 13 years. There are a few special effects that may frighten younger children and patrons should be aware before purchasing tickets that children under the age of 4 years will not be admitted to the theatre.
