The Phantom of the Opera is a work of gothic fiction by French author Gaston Leroux. It's the story of the Palais Garnier Opera House which is thought to be haunted by a ghost. A young soprano, Christine Daae, surprises everyone with her stand in performance one night, and the Phantom of the Opera becomes obsessed with her. The managers of the opera house receive a letter, demanding that Christine plays the lead role in the production of Faust. The letter is ignored, with horrible consequences. The Phantom abducts Christine, and is revealed to be a disfigured man (Erik) who has built himself a lair in the opera house, complete with hidden passages.
