Far under the majesty and splendor of the Paris Opera, hides the Phantom in an obscure existence. Ashamed by his physical appearance and feared by all, he haunts the grand Opera of Paris. Sheltered from the outside world in an underground cave, the solitary and romantic man gives lessons and composes operas for Christine DaaÃ©, a magnificent young soprano in the making. The love he has for his beautiful protÃ©gÃ© Christine is so strong that even his heart cannot resist it. As Christine’s star rises and a handsome suitor from her past takes the stage, the ghost goes mad, terrorizing the owners of the opera house and the company with his murderous ways. However, Christine finds herself attracted to the mystery man.
