Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1910, the mystery novelist Gaston Leroux, working from scraps of history, theatrical lore, and his own fertile imagination, created a masterpiece in Le fantôme de lopéra, the story of a disfigured composer who lives in the labyrinthine depths of the Paris Opera. After the breathtaking debut of Christine Daaé, the whispers of an Opera ghost seem to become reality as the young singer vanishes. As the Phantom strikes again and again, targeting foes from a jealous diva to a romantic rival, Leroux spins a thriller of obsession and violence with, at its center, a tormented murderer who awakens our deepest fears and sympathies. The inspiration for Andrew Lloyd Webbers long-running musical, Lerouxs novel is still more riveting than anything Broadway could produce.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 283-284).

Synopsis:

Set in the Paris opera house in 1881, The Phantom of the Opera contrasts reality and fantasy, good and evil. A dark psychological tale of obsession and redemption in which the Phantom can be seen as anyone's superego — Leroux's masterpiece has been too long in the shadows.
