Phantom of the Opera fans in the UAE are in for a treat, as you can now stream the show’s 25th Anniversary production for free.

The special version of the long-running musical was filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in 2011 and has previously been released to buy.

But today (Sunday April 19) you can watch it for free on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel. 

But you’ll have to hurry as Phantom of the Opera will only be available until 10pm GST tonight (Sunday April 19).

The production stars Ramin Karimloo as the Phantom, while Hadley Fraser takes on the role of Raoul and Sierra Boggess plays Christine.

And there’s a further treat in store, as at the end of the show former Phantoms including John Owen-Jones and Colm Wilkinson take to the stage to sing with the show’s original Christine, Sarah Brightman.

Meanwhile the original Phantom, Michael Crawford also makes an appearance on stage alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber and producer Cameron Mackintosh.

Phantom of the Opera is the longest-running show in Broadway history, and it’s an epic production telling a classic love story, based on the book by Gaston Leroux.

The award-winning musical also features some of composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s most famous music, including hits such as Think of Me and Music of the Night. In fact, the original cast recording has sold more than 40 million copies worldwide.
