West End's The Phantom of the Opera Is Streaming for Free

For a limited time only!

(SPOT.ph) More than a month into the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon and with varying degrees of lockdown around the world, the meaning of going to the theater has completely transformed. Stored recordings of plays and musicals have gone online, dramatic readings of old and new pieces are done via Zoom, and thespians have been sharing their notes to keep the art of theater-making alive. To add to the multitude of theatrical pieces on the Internet, acclaimed English composer Andrew Lloyd Webber teamed up with Universal to make a whole roster of his legendary musicals available to watch for free on YouTube. Next up is The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall, which will go live on April 17 at 2 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, or April 18 at 2 a.m., Philippine Standard Time.
