Based on the classic novel "Le Fantôme de L'Opéra" by Gaston Leroux, The Phantom of the Opera, according to producers, "tells the story of a masked figure who lurks beneath the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, exercising a reign of terror over all who inhabit it. He falls madly in love with an innocent young soprano, Christine, and devotes himself to creating a new star by nurturing her extraordinary talents and by employing all of the devious methods at his command."


The Majestic Theatre is located at 247 West 44th Street. Visit ThePhantomOfTheOpera.com.
