Phantom Of The Opera, The
This love story-thriller tells the full story of the mysterious masked terror who inhabits the cellars of the Paris Opera House. Born disfigured, he has avoided and has been avoided by one and all, except the lovely Christine, who is his musical protege. He arranges for her to sing the lead in the opera, "Faust," and expects her to love him in return. This she cannot do because she has seen his ugliness under the mask and also because she is in love with her childhood sweetheart. The Phantom's fury takes off at her, at her lover, and his only ally (a mysterious Persian) and all. Despite his evil doings, audiences never fully reject the Phantom. a bitchy tenor and temperamental diva relieve the tension with some humorous backstage bickering. The entire play is musically underscored.
