It will reimagine Leroux’s gothic story about a disfigured composer, who lives in the depths of the Paris Opera House and falls for singer Christine Daae with tragic consequences.

The show will be based on the original novel, rather than Andrew Lloyd Webber’s critically-acclaimed 1986 musical adaptation.

A 2004 film, inspired by Webber’s take, was directed by the late Joel Schumacher with actor Gerard Butler in the title role. It also featured Emmy Rossum, Patrick Wilson, Miranda Richardson, Minnie Driver, and Jennifer Ellison.

The Phantom Of The Opera is billed as one of the most successful musicals of all time and has scooped nine Olivier and Tony Awards after debuting in the West End and Broadway in the 1980s.
