For me, it's the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre set for Into the Woods. Perfect for the production. Here's a time-lapse video of it being constructed:

Lord of the Rings was a really stunning set. Didnt enjoy the show (like the pre show bit with the hobbits) but the set was amazing.

I also loved the Phantom set in las vegas the way the whole auditorium was custom for the production.

Agree with both of these! I hated Lord of the Rings but the set was sublime (even though it malfunctioned twice and the show was stopped both times for 10 minutes, lol).

The White Guard at the National will always stand out for me.

I have to say Frankenstein at the National trumps all for me.

I was just about to post that. Visually stunning use of space in the Olivier

City of Angels was at the Prince of Wales.

Oliver at the palladium was pretty wonderful.. As was Joseph back in the day.

No show in recent years has wowed scenically for me., sister act was just plain ugly... Likewise The Bodyguard.

Another vote for Sunset Boulevard -  absolutely stunning.
Also agree with Oliver at the Palladium.

One of my other favourites was the original staging of Martin Guerre at the Prince Edward- I remember the pieces of set being realtively simple but combined with the lighting and projections  made it one of the most beautiful pieces of staging I can remember.
