One of the longest running musicals in history – “The Phantom of the Opera” – was set for a fourteen month run in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The award winning musical by Lord Andrew Lloyd Weber had given only one performance in Leicester in March before everything was shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Since then the performances in Manchester and Dublin have been cancelled. Now the remaining performances in Birmingham, Edinburgh, Sunderland, Cardiff, Plymouth, Southampton, and Bradford have also been cancelled.
Fans who have purchased tickets for the shows will be contacted about a refund from the point of sale.
