One thing to (absolutely) do when in London is to watch a musical. It’s in our `to-do-list` when we decided to move to UK.
- THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA
Her Majesty’s Theatre, London
This was my first musical experience, and I’m glad it was The Phantom of the Opera. It was truly an amazing show that would give you goose bumps. The cast did great in their performance, the music was great and the effects felt real. I particularly enjoyed the part were The Phantom was literally at the top of the stage singing, when The Phantom sailed to his underground lair, when the chandelier [censored not to spoil the plot], the sound of the gun when… Well, go and see it for yourself.
The view from our seats was great. We could see everything from top to bottom, and from left to right.
Where we sat:
Block: RC – Royal Circle
Price: £125.00/person on a Saturday 7:30PM
- DISNEY’S THE LION KING
Lyceum Theatre, London
You are never too old for a Disney musical!
What I like about the musical were the costumes, the songs and dances; it was very colourful. Some of the cast surprised the audiences by entering the stage from behind the stalls. They literally sang and danced in the aisle whilst walking towards the stage. The kids were amazed and thrilled to see the animal-dressed cast beside them.
Most of the reviews suggested to sit in the stalls. I am not tall, I had to lift my head a bit because the person in front of me was blocking a little bit. I can still see what is going on though. However, balcony could have been a good option too.
Where we sat:
Seats: N33, N32
Price: £92.50/person on a Saturday 2:30PM
I will update this post with musicals that I have been to from time to time.
