Romantic music, flashes of color, breath-taking spectacles. Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical is often the first thing people think about when they hear the word 'phantom'. But as connoisseurs know, the Phantom owes more of his appeal to his overall humanity as evidenced in Leroux original writings.
The Phantom of the Opera was originally a novel, written by Gaston Leroux in 1910. It was based, some believe, on actual legends of an opera ghost, with a good smattering of Leroux’s own background included as Erik’s (the Phantom) history.
Erik, the tragic hero of the novel, faces a world hostile to him. Because of his disfigurement he has fled the world, living in a home he himself has designed beneath the opera house. It is from here that Erik rules over the opera, and broods in his solitude. That is until Miss Daaé shows up.
