TRAVEL AND PARKING NOTICE!
This weekend, the 2014 World Food & Music Festival is taking place on the Walnut Street Bridge and surrounding areas in downtown Des Moines. Organizers expect 75,000 visitors at the festival.

Following an acclaimed sold-out tour of the United Kingdom, Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s phenomenal musical success, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, will come to Des Moines as part of a brand new North American Tour. Critics are raving that this breathtaking production is “bigger and better than ever before.” This PHANTOM features a brilliant new scenic design by Paul Brown, Tony Award®-winning original costume design by Maria Björnson, lighting design by Tony Award®-winner Paule Constable, new choreography by Scott Ambler, and a new staging by director Laurence Connor. The production, overseen by Matthew Bourne and Cameron Mackintosh, boasts many exciting special effects including the show’s legendary chandelier. The beloved story and thrilling score - with songs like “Music of the Night,” “All I Ask Of You,” and “Masquerade” - will be performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this PHANTOM one of the largest productions now on tour.

This production is part of the Willis Broadway Series. Learn how you can get the best seats at the best prices with Season Tickets.
