The Phantom of the Opera is a famous classic horror-romance novel. The book was originally titled Le Fantôme de l'Opéra. With this novel especially, French author Gaston Leroux is then considered as one of the inventors of the detective story. Inspired by historical events in the 19th century that took place at the Paris Opera, the book was initially published in series and came as a single volume in 1910. The novel has inspired and is now mostly known in its musical and film renditions.

Although no one seemed to ever actually see or hear, people talked about and believed that there’s a phantom, a ghost—that haunts the gloomy passages and cellars of the Paris Opera House. It was Christine Daaé, fledgling star with admirable beauty and talent, who heard the voice of the Phantom. He taught her how to sing beyond what she knew she can and her success grew. When Viscount, a good-looking you man, started to get close to Christine, mysterious bad things suddenly happened and finally Christine disappeared. It was the Phantom, burned by jealousy, having his revenge.

*Preview of Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera*
First published in French as a serial in 1909, "The Phantom of the Opera" is a riveting story that revolves around the young, Swedish Christine Daaé. Her father, a famous musician, dies, and she is raised in the Paris Opera House with his dying promise of a protective angel of music to guide her. After a time at the opera house, she begins hearing a voice, who eventually teaches her how to sing beautifully.

All goes well until Christine's childhood friend Raoul comes to visit his parents, who are patrons of the opera, and he sees Christine when she begins successfully singing on the stage. The voice, who is the deformed, murderous 'ghost' of the opera house named Erik, however, grows violent in his terrible jealousy, until Christine suddenly disappears. The phantom is in love, but it can only spell disaster.

Leroux's work, with characters ranging from the spoiled prima donna Carlotta to the mysterious Persian from Erik's past, has been immortalized by memorable adaptations. Despite this, it remains a remarkable piece of Gothic horror literature in and of itself, deeper and darker than any version that follows.
