The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of the Phantom, a deformed composer who hides beneath the Paris Opera House, haunting those around. Underground and away from the world, he teaches and composes opera for Christine, herself a beautiful young soprano. As Christine grows to fame, a handsome man from the past enters the fray.
