About Musicals by Candlelight

After a series of sell-out concerts, Musicals by Candlelight returns to London. Sit back, relax, and experience some of the greatest musical theatre songs of all time performed by a world-class string quartet at London’s historic Actors' Church.

Each concert by candlelight sees a string quartet perform popular songs from musical theatre composers: Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and more.

Icon Strings Quartet play at all Musicals by Candlelight concerts. The award-winning musicians regularly perform internationally, as well as at prestigious London venues such as the Royal Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall.

There are four different types of Musicals by Candlelight seating: premium, standard, onstage, and restricted view. Seats are unallocated within the section you book, so we recommend arriving with plenty of time to ensure your party is able to sit together.

Enjoy an enchanted evening of theatre.

The combination of musical theatre songs played at an iconic venue like The Actors' Church works in perfect harmony.

The Musicals by Candlelight concerts take place at The Actors' Church (also known as St Paul's Church) in the heart of Covent Garden. Entry to the church is via the gate on Bedford Street.
