What’s the Story?
Beneath the beauty of the Paris Opera House lurks a mysterious masked figure. A genius recluse, the Phantom falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star.
When a handsome young suitor from Christine’s past enters the picture and threatens to steal her away from him. Is his love enough to forgive the unthinkable acts he has committed? Will Christine be able to resist her ‘Angel of music’?
