A Haunting Love Story
This is no ordinary boy-meets-girl tale.
Based on the 1910 horror novel by Gaston Leroux, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical The Phantom of the Opera tells a thrilling and romantic account of the mysterious Phantom, a musical prodigy shunned by society for his terrifying face deformity. Hiding behind a mask, the Phantom lurks beneath the Paris Opera House and gets sadistic joy out of terrorizing the opera company–until a promising young soprano Christine Daae comes to the main stage. The Phantom takes an interest in Christine, grooming her for fame and over time falling in love with her. But it is a young handsome man from Christine’s past that wins her affections, which sends the Phantom in a jealous rage and the opera house into total mayhem.
With Andrew Lloyd Webber’s unforgettable musical score, including timeless songs like “Think of Me,” “All I Ask of You,” “The Music of the Night,” and of course “The Phantom of the Opera,” it is no wonder that The Phantom of the Opera is one of the most successful musicals of all time.
