Lead actor in Dubai's Phantom of the Opera revealed

The actor who is playing the lead role in Dubai's first-ever production of Phantom of the Opera has been revealed.

South African musical theatre star Jonathan Roxmouth will take to the stage from Wednesday October 16 until Wednesday October 30 at Dubai Opera.

With previous credits as Billy Flynn in Chicago, Che in Evita, Danny in Grease, Munkustrap in Cats and Gaston in Beauty and the Beast (among others), you can be guaranteed that it'll be an amazing show.

Jonathan has also played the Phantom in South Africa, the Philippines and is about to start a run in Singapore.

Based on the novel by Gaston Leroux, Phantom of the Opera captured the attention of theatre and musical fans worldwide.

Many actors have taken on the role, which was launched in the West End by Some Mothers Do ’Av ’Em star Michael Crawford. Lloyd Webber’s wife Sarah Brightman took the role of Christine.

The pair reprised their roles in the original Broadway cast. At the Royal Albert Hall 25th Anniversary show, Ramin Karimloo played the part of the Phantom.

We can't wait to take our seats.
From Dhs250. 8pm, Wed Oct 16-Wed Oct 30. 2pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai, www.dubaiopera.com.
