Tickets start at $20.


Please be advised that the DCPA is the ONLY authorized online ticket provider for the Denver engagement of The Phantom of the Opera.

“It’s wonderful to have a new production of Phantom touring America now that the show has celebrated 28 years on Broadway,” said Lloyd Webber. “Director Laurence Connor has done an amazing job and this production has received huge critical acclaim in the U.K.”

Connor co-directed the new production of Les Misérables currently running on Broadway and around the world, as well as the award-winning new London production of Miss Saigon coming to Broadway in 2017 and national tour in 2018, and the stage version of the movie School of Rock now playing at Broadway’s Winter Garden.

Added Mackintosh: “With Phantom still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 28 phenomenal years, with no end in sight, I’m delighted that this spectacular new production of Phantom has been as well-received in the U.S. as the brilliant original and has already been seen by over 2 million people across North America since it opened in November 2013. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson’s amazing costumes, the new Phantom is thrilling audiences and critics alike all over again – the music of the night is soaring to dazzling new heights.”

Based on the classic novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it.  He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command.
