On Thursday 9 October 2014, we celebrated the 28th birthday for the Phantom of the Opera in London at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Haymarket!
Our Phantom Gerónimo Rauch was at hand to help throughout the week with all the backstage gossip via our Twitter account while the cast rehearsed for a special performance for the big evening. As the anniversary performance came to an emotional end and the cast took their final bows to yet another standing ovation, the audience joined in singing ‘Happy Birthday’ while the stage was showered with confetti for a breathtaking curtain call.
During the after party in the gorgeous Royal Circle Bar, lyricist Charles Hart joined the cast and crew to toast the show’s success by graciously saying a few words in honour of another momentous year and cut the traditional and impressive Phantom of the Opera birthday cake (pictured).
Another year, another fantastic birthday celebration for a show enjoyed by so many all over the world over a very impressive 28 years!
