Phantom of the Opera
Phantom of the Opera | Gaston Leroux
"Phantom of the Opera" is an enduring classic of the macabre. The masked monster known as the Phantom of the Opera lives beneath the Paris Opera House, in an opulent palace in the catacombs, where he dreams of the day that he will keep beautiful singer Christine Daae forever. Romantic and suspenseful, this thrilling tale is brought to life in a riveting performance by Academy Award-winner F. Murray Abraham.

#colormepretty day 20! I really love the #orange accents on this copy of one of my favorite books!

megzlynn This is one of my favorites as well! It bothers me that my friends who‘ve only watched the movie/play don‘t realize his name is Erik though. 😂 1mo

I really enjoyed The Phantom of the Opera. I've seen a few of the movies that have been made from it over the years & the book is really better. I love how its narrated by the author & presented as a real event that had occurred 👻

Reading this beautiful book. Can‘t wait to see how it compares to one of my favorite musicals of all time ❤️

The_Old_Astronomer ...so how did it compare?? 3mo
OnlyYoo I think that the musical does a better job showing the different dynamics between Erik and Christine and Christine and raoul. But the book does a better job showing what a genius Erik is and how tortured he is by society‘s rejection of him 3mo

Got some tickets to the symphony from work; it was an evening of Sondheim and Webber. Cats and Phantom of the Opera have special places in my heart and I was super excited when the organist came out during intermission to get ready to perform The Phantom of the Opera. My zoom hasn't working but you can still see him sitting up there!

AllieLovesBooks That is amazing, where was the performance? 3mo
Lcsmcat Is that Meyerson Hall? 3mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @AllieLovesBooks @Lcsmcat it was at the Meyerson in Dallas, a gorgeous space! I think this was the first time I saw something there where they used the organ. 3mo

WhatWouldJaneDo @Lcsmcat that's so cool! What does he play? 3mo
Lcsmcat @WhatWouldJaneDo Bass trombone. He was never in the Dallas Symphony, but one of the ones he played in played there on tour. I can‘t remember which. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo

Phantom of the Opera! Maybe you have heard of this famous Broadway show or maybe you have seen the movies made about it. But did you know it was a book? I found this for ONLY $2.00 in this amazing book store in Salem Massachusetts! While this is my favorite musical, the book really satisfies my need to learn more about the french opera ghost. I wouldn‘t recommend this book for young readers however- the content is high school level.

kennedimartin This F novel would be great for a LC. Using UDL 5.1 the reader can research more about the story behind the alluring phantom of the opera. I found this great resource https://www.mirvish.com/uploads/shows/Phantom/PHANTOM%20Study%20Guide.pdf where the creator of the stage play created a PDF with pages of background info on the opera ghost! Using ESOL 1, 3 and 5, an advanced level EL could enjoy this book as well. #lae3414sp19 (edited) 4mo

Watching this at the Frank Sinatra HS of the arts (kinda like a Fame school) founded by Tony Bennett. These kids are super talented and do the whole production from music to sets. It's like a Broadway production except that im in a NYC school!

My staircase isn‘t as grand as the Opera‘s, but it serves the same function, so I‘d consider them equals! 😉

Happy Valentine‘s Day, Littens! I hope it‘s great. It bugs me that this quote is actually from the play not the novel. Nevertheless, I love it. The greatest gift I could receive today would be to get out of this reading slump that has stemmed from having the flu this week. Now, with no really excuse, I just feel like I‘m too lazy to read. 😂

It is finished!!! This weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing a stage performance of The Phantom of the Opera at an actual opera house. The best word I have to describe the experience is UNFORGETTABLE. The Angel of Music is singing songs in my head! These past weeks I have been driven to finish the original story, and I am so sad this is only my first read because it deserves another!! Poor, unhappy Erik. #OG

I find it impossible to separate my love for the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical from the source material. The music ran through my head as I listened to the audiobook. If you are a fan of the musical, I think you‘ll love the book, too. #popsugar2018 #stageplayormusical

Overall, a meh. AL Webber‘s musical really distills the best parts of the plot - and honestly, the movie of the musical does even more to bring in bits from the book. The characters in the book are too much - there are too many and Raoul, for example, is too petulant and childish, while Christine is too angelic. Still, glad to have read it.

Doing better than expected for #24B4Monday, too, thanks to kid lessons and hiding from family.

Andrew65 Great total, well done 🙌 9mo

I‘ve had it for...at least 15 years; I think it‘s time to read it. So far, into the second chapter, and it‘s pretty good. On the down side, it‘s hard to read it with the soundtrack to the ALWebber version running through my head. Very distracting.

Where has this book been my whole life? I absolutely loved this. Mystery, horror, love and maybe some sarcastic nihilism. It really gets into all the creepy corners of your brain.

I'm ashamed to say that I had no idea what this novel was about but I loved it! And I was even more intrigued because it's seems to be fact, myth and fiction all mixed in together. This book is very readable and I was totally drawn in. I think perhaps this is now my favoriate classic!

Though I didn‘t love the novel at large and found that it made the central characters quite unlikable (save Erik, who I still feel quite tenderly for), this last bit of text was very lovely. My heart breaks for the poor man that the world made a monster through any medium in which this story is told ♥️🕯#phantom
