|Other info||● Latecomers
To avoid disrupting both the audience and the performers, most performances have a lockout period restricting latecomer entry until a suitable break in the performance. This means that if you arrive late, you may not get into the show until interval, or, in some cases, at all. Where latecomer entry is possible, it is usual to seat latecomers in seats at the back of a seating area or in a different level, rather than their ticketed position, to avoid further disruption. Once interval comes, you can move to your originally assigned seat. Ticket refunds or exchanges are not available on the basis of late arrival. It is strongly recommended that you plan the journey to ensure you arrive at the venue well in advance of the scheduled performance commencement.
● Seat Selections and Allocations
Your reservation is confirmed in booked Reserve with random seat(s) assigned within the area. Your allocated seat number will be shown on the ticket issued by Arts Centre Melbourne.

All attendees, regardless of age, must hold a valid ticket to be admitted to the auditorium. This includes children and infants who must have their own seat, and cannot sit on the lap of a parent or guardian. We ask that parents and guardians consider the comfort and enjoyment of other audience members if bringing infants and small children to the performance.

We focus on relaxing – or adapting – the theatre environment and preparing the audience by developing pre-show resources.

You can leave the auditorium to take a break and a designated quiet area is available.
● Open Captioned Performance: Wednesday 15 December, 1pm
Captioning is available at selected performances. Captions are prepared from the script of the play by highly trained staff. During the performance, the captions are displayed on a screen, enabling the audience to read what is being said, without obstructing the performance.

Musical at the Arts Centre Melbourne - The Phantom of the Opera
Hit after hit punctuates the thrilling score, from the stunning romance of "Music of the Night", "Think of Me" and "All I Ask of You" to the splendid "Masquerade" and brilliant title song.
Now, you can hear them all in a spectacular new production that has stunned critics across the United Kingdom and North America. It features new direction by Laurence Connor, new scenic design by Paul Brown, lighting design by Tony Award®-winner Paule Constable, sound design by Mick Potter, new choreography by Scott Ambler and the original, Tony Award-winning costume design by Maria Björnson.
Overseen by Cameron Mackintosh & Matthew Bourne, the "simply epic" new staging includes many special effects, from the famous chandelier to the underground lake, and a large cast and orchestra. It's "bigger and better than ever before" (Yorkshire Post), "stunning, intense and spectacular" (Sunday Express).
The Phantom of the Opera haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. He's man and mystery, a deformed genius. And in Christine Daae, he's found his angel of music: the young woman he would make a star. But how many lives will he sacrifice to make the music of the night?
