During a performance of Faust, the beautiful young soprano Christine is kidnapped by the hideous "Phantom" of the Paris Opéra and taken to his Gothic lair beneath the city. The phantom's powers are almost supernatural, his tempers often lethal. However, Christine is no victim. Though she must accede to his demands that she become his wife and protégé, she does so on her terms, and the dark romance that follows becomes an enduring legend.
