Something strange is afoot at the Paris Opera House. When staff and performers spot a skeleton dressed in dinner attire, tales of the opera house ghost begin to surface.
The new manager dismisses the stories as overactive imaginations, but chaos ensues, and encounters with the phantom become increasingly frightening. Who is the mysterious phantom that haunts the theater after the crowds have left for the night? How can he enter locked rooms and get from place to place so quickly? What is his connection to the beautiful and talented Christine?
Gaston Leroux injects the perfect combination of gothic tension and horror in his classic tale of the dark and foreboding. First published in 1909 in serial format, The Phantom of the Opera quickly became one of the most beloved gothic tales of the Victorian era, earning its place as one of the greatest stories of all time.
