The special 25th anniversary staging of The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall was broadcast live at New York City's Ziegfeld Theatre Oct. 2.
The sold-out Oct. 1-2 London performances of Phantom, which transformed London's Royal Albert Hall to conjure Maria Björnson's original stage designs, featured direction by Laurence Connor and choreography and musical staging by Gillian Lynne.
The special presentation of Phantom will also be released Nov. 14 on DVD, Blu-ray, CD and digital download. It will be released in Australia and New Zealand Dec. 8. A four-CD and DVD Collectors' box set is also planned.
A host of past and present cast members were on hand for the occasion:
