About The Phantom of the Opera
Set in the Paris Opera House in the 19th century, The Phantom of the Opera revolves around Christine Daaé, a young and talented soprano who becomes the object of obsession for a mysterious and disfigured musical genius known only as the Phantom.
As Christine's career rises, she begins to receive tutorship from the Phantom, who secretly lives beneath the opera house and manipulates events in order to showcase her talent. Despite her growing fear of the Phantom, Christine is drawn to him and begins to sympathise with his plight. However, the Phantom's possessive behaviour becomes increasingly unstable, jealous and dangerous leading to a heart-wrenching finale.
