In the cosmopolitan Paris of the 1880s, the new proprietors of the Opera House are amused to discover that their costly acquisition is said to be haunted. But their smiles quickly vanish as tragedy follows misfortune: a murdered stagehand, a fatal accident, a missing girl.
Fearful tales of the Opera Ghost race through the corridors and dressing rooms of the theatre. And with good reason - for deep in the catacombs beneath the Opera House, something is stirring....
A full cast dramatisation, featuring Anna Massey (Madame Giry), Peter Guinness (The Phantom), Alexander Siddig (The Persian), James D'Arcy (Raoul), Helen Goldwyn (Christine), Tony Millan (Moncharmin), Richard Earl (Richard), Nick Brimble (Philippe/Gaston), Nick Wilton (Lachenel/Mifroid), Geraldine Newman (Madame Valérius), Samantha Hughes (La Carlotta), Nicola Weeks (Meg/Adèle), and singers Linda Richardson (Christine/La Carlotta), Matthew Hargreaves (The Phantom). Director: Barnaby Edwards. Sound design: Matthew Cochrane. Music: Tim Sutton (violin played by Ruth Rogers).

Enjoyable and fun!
I wouldn't call it better as they are two different mediums. The only aspect where it improves upon the print version is that I am able to hear what segments of Faust sounds like as it's referred to so often.
My favorite character is the Phantom, himself. He is extraordinarily talented and while I don't commend his actions against others, I can understand where it comes from. After all, no one showed him pity.
The actors and singers bring the book to life. As opposed to a regular audio book where you're listening to a singular narrator.
Not one particular moment, no. I enjoyed the whole piece.
