The students staying at Queen’s College traded the city of dreaming spires for the bustling capital city of London. Students opted to either spend their time shopping in Sloane Square or hitting some of London’s greatest tourist attractions such as the London Eye, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. Students the then re-grouped for the main event in London’s West End.
Now it’s 31st glorious year, The Phantom of the Opera continues to mesmerise and entrance audiences at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London and all around the world. The story follows a phantom, far beneath the majesty and splendour of the Paris Opera House in a shadowy existence, shamed by his physical appearance and feared by all he cannot overcome his love for his protégé Christine Daae. Their intrepid romance is brought to life on stage, in over 10,000 performances. Andrew Loyd Webber’s spellbinding set, along with jaw-dropping scenery and breath taking special effects, magically combine to bring this tragic love story to life. The students couldn’t help but fall for the remarkable story, leaving them in utter amazement and silent shock when leaving the theatre.
Some very weary faces climbed aboard the bus home, with many dropping off the moment they took their seats. The big city had shown the students some unforgettable experiences, with many already eager to return.
