First look: Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's

A FLAWLESS production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera is set to open at Her Majesty's Theatre on Friday. 

The Courier got an exclusive preview of the show tonight, taking the opportunity to watch the talented cast put on their first full-dress rehearsal. 

And it did not disappoint, with a few features - which we'll keep secret - sure to impress punters come Friday. 

Director Steven O'Neil said all elements had come together for what is sure to be an unforgettable show. 

"There is the beautiful music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, the stellar cast of Ballarat's leading talent and Her Majesty's is set to be pushed to her limits," Mr O'neil said. 

He said tickets were selling fast, but said there were still some prime seats available.
