PHANTOM OF THE OPERA AT THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL - THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION PERFORMANCE is a recording of a stage performance of the popular musical. It tells the story of a physically deformed musical genius who lives in the sewers below the Paris Opera House and who becomes fixated on a young soprano named Christine. Following the performance of the musical itself, composer Andrew Lloyd Webber takes to the stage and introduces various key players from the musical's history. This film was classified 'PG' for mild threat, violence and horror.

Although there are a few grisly moments, such as the Phantom murdering someone by strangling and then hanging them, the setting is self-evidently theatrical. The Royal Albert Hall audience is visible throughout, as is the orchestra, so the viewer is always aware they are watching a theatrical performance and that even the stronger moments are stage effects. The character of the Phantom is creepy and sometimes threatening, but the tension is often relieved by the start of new musical number and does not exceed the terms of the BBFC's Guidelines at 'PG' which state 'Frightening sequences should not be prolonged or intense'.
