Theatre Spot Test: How many songs from Phantom can you name?

By Robin Johnson, Published October 27, 2017

It only seems like yesterday we first dropped our programmes and dived for cover when a rogue chandelier came hurtling our way, but as of October 2017, the iconic Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom Of The Opera has enjoyed a stunning 31 West End years at Her Majesty’s Theatre.

The musical opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre on 9 October 1986 with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman in the leading roles, and there have been dozens of productions worldwide since then. The enchanting love story is clearly a fan favourite, having won the Olivier Audience Award (voted for by the public) in the 2016 Olivier Awards with Mastercard, adding to its haul of over 50 major theatre awards worldwide.

And so, honouring a true West End classic, we invite you to attempt this week’s Theatre Spot Test: based off nothing more than a teaser lyric, how many of the gorgeous Lloyd Webber songs from The Phantom Of The Opera can you name?

Sing them once again for me – you’ve got 7 minutes! Song titles are taken from the 25th Anniversary album recorded at the Royal Albert Hall, and you can find out more about the show here.
