The Phantom of the Opera is based on the French novel Le Fantôme de L’Opéra by Gaston Leroux and is the tale of a masked man who lives beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House. He falls in love with a young female ingénue, Christine, and reigns down a wrath of terror on those who stand in the way of his love and making Christine the opera house star. A hauntingly tragic story of love, deception, and the lengths people will go to fight for what they believe in.
