The Phantom of the Opera -- the original novel
The Phantom of the Opera -- the original novel Author:Gaston Leroux Fiction/Drama — "The Opera ghost really existed. He was not, as was long believed, a creature of the imagination of the artists, the superstition of the managers, or a product of the absurd and impressionable brains of the young ladies of the ballet, their mothers, the box-keepers, the cloak-room attendants or the concierge. Yes, he existed in ... more »flesh and blood, although he assumed the complete appearance of a real phantom; that is to say, of a spectral shade."
---From the author's Prologue
"'The Phantom of the Opera' is a haunting and enduring tale that has fascinated readers for a century. Set in the Paris Opera in 1881, it tells the story of a composer, his face scarred by acid, who haunts the sewers underneath the Opera. The story evokes the powers of evil and good, reality and illusion, sensuality and death, to arouse our emotions as only a true master writer can."« less
