The legendary rumours of an 'opera ghost' take on a terrifying reality when the beautiful young singer Christine Daae suddenly disappears after her triumphant performance. An ever increasing pattern of fear and violence pervades the dim backstage areas of the Opera House, as the phantom threatens to strike once more. This title is published to coincide with the centenary of the first publication, in a completely new translation by Mireille Ribiere.
