Notes

This original London cast recording was the first in British musical history to enter the charts at number one.

Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber during his marriage to Sarah, The Phantom of the Opera is perhaps the musical theatre production that best showcases Sarah’s uncannily broad vocal range.

Having originated and defined the female lead role, it’s not surprising that Sarah will probably always be regarded as the quintessential Christine in this landmark musical.

Sarah premiered the role at Her Majesty's Theatre in London on Oct 9, 1986 and at the Majestic Theatre on Jan 26, 1988 in New York.

Since then, The Phantom of the Opera has won over 50 major theatre awards.
These include 7 Tony Awards (including Best Musical), 3 Olivier Awards (including Musical of the Year), 3 Outer Critic Circle Awards (including Best Musical), 7 Drama Desk Awards and an Evening Standard Award.

Issued in a 2CD fatbox jewelcase.
