Phantom of the Opera is Andrew Lloyd Webber’s iconic musical which has audiences coming back for more whenever it is open. It is the longest-running Broadway musical ever, and is well loved by audiences all over the world. The star of the show’s 25th anniversary special, Ramin Karimloo, is back for another important day for the show.
On October 9, 1986, Phantom of the Opera premiered in London, making October 9 a very important day in the show’s history.
As a result, fans will be able to stream the show once again on this day via The Shows Must Go On YouTube channel for 24 hours.
Ramin Karimloo, the star of this version of the show, which was first performed in honour of the shoe’s 25th anniversary, admitted there was one thing he took home from the show.
The moment was a “huge honour” for him, so much so that he kept a special memento close with him.

He said: “I cleaned out my attic the other day, I was searching for something and I found this box with 13 of my masks in there, and my 25th anniversary mask was in its own box…
“I was like, ‘Why do I have so many masks up here?!’”
Clearly his masks were important to him, especially as he decided to keep so many of them to remind him of his time as the Phantom.
When this version was shown during lockdown, Ramin decided to break an important rule in his own career: to watch his work.
