He was not, as was long believed, a creature of the imagination… Yes, he existed in flesh and blood, although he assumed the complete appearance of a real phantom…”

This is a catalogue of photographs taken behind the scenes during the first year of the musical 'Phantom of the Opera'. The photographs contained give a unique insight into life backstage at Her Majesty's theatre, London, and include images of the original cast members, from the principals, Michael Crawford, Sarah Brightman and Steve Barton, to the chorus. These photos capture the ambiance, and eeriness, of a production that takes the audience back to 19th century Paris, as well as including many shots of real life backstage. Over 80 million people have seen 'Phantom' worldwide, but it is this original London cast which made the only available recording of the show, so it is this cast that is known best to the worldwide audience. Few of these photos have even been seen by others, although Hal Prince, the original director of the show, said these were the best photographs of the show he had ever seen. This publication is intended primarily as a source of the prints. But is a valuable archive in itself.

This is the most comprehensive analytical study ever done of The Phantom of the Opera in its many different versions from the original Gaston Leroux novel to the present day. It proposes answers to the question, 'why do we keep needing this story told and retold in the Western world?' by revealing the history of deep cultural tensions that underlie the novel and each major adaptation. Using extensive historical and textual evidence and drawing on perspectives from several theories of cultural study, this book argues that we need this tale told and reconfigured because it provides us ways to both confront and disguise how we have fashioned our senses of identity in the Western middle class. The Phantom of the Opera - in varying ways over time - turns out like the 'Gothic' tradition it extends, to be deeply connected to Western self-fashioning in the face of conflicted attitudes about class, gender, race, religious beliefs, Freudian psychology, economic and international tensions, and especially the shifting and permeable boundaries between 'high' and 'low' culture. This book should interest all students of the history of Western culture, as well as those especially fascinated by Gothic fiction, opera, musical theatre, and film.

The Phantom of the Opera is a novel by French writer Gaston Leroux. It was first published as a serialisation in Le Gaulois from September 23, 1909, to January 8, 1910. It was published in volume form in late March 1910 by Pierre Lafitte. The novel is partly inspired by historical events at the Paris Opera during the nineteenth century and an apocryphal tale concerning the use of a former ballet pupil's skeleton in Carl Maria von Weber's 1841 production of Der Freisch�tz. It has been successfully adapted into various stage and film adaptations, most notable of which are the 1925 film depiction featuring Lon Chaney and Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 musical. In 1890s Paris, the Palais Garnier is believed to be haunted by an entity known as "The Phantom" or "The Opera Ghost". One day, the stage hand, Joseph Bouquet, is found hanged, presumably by The Phantom, after boasting about him to the corps de ballet. At the same time, Christine Daa�, a young Swedish soprano, has been tutored by what she believes to be "the Angel of Music," sent by her deceased father. On the night of the old manager's retirement, she understudies at the gala performance for the Opera's leading soprano, Carlotta, and her performance is an astonishing success. The Vicomte, Raoul de Changy, who was present at the performance, recognises her as his childhood playmate, and recalls his love for her. He attempts to visit her backstage, when he hears a man speaking to her from inside her dressing room. He investigates the room once Christine leaves, only to find that there's no one else in the room. At Perros-Guirec, Christine meets with Raoul, who confronts her about the voice he heard in her room. Christine tells him about The Angel that has been tutoring her, but he is skeptical and suggests that she might be the victim of a prank. Hurt and angry, she storms off. Christine visits her father's grave one night, where a mysterious figure appears and plays the violin for her.
