9780140621747: The Phantom of the Opera (Penguin Popular Classics)

When the new managers of the Paris Opera House ignore their predecessors’ warnings about the hideous ‘Opera ghost’ stalking the theatre, it is a fatal mistake. Tortured by unrequited love for the beautiful young singer Christine Daaé, the mysterious figure living in the depths beneath them has been awaiting his chance to strike. And when Christine suddenly disappears after a triumphant singing performance, it becomes clear that the phantom’s time has come. Filled with colour and theatrical spectacle, this thrilling gothic tale has enthralled readers with its mystery, eerie suspense and tragic story of love turned into deadly obsession.

Review:

""A venerable, much-adapted story of grand, delicate feelings and gothic creepiness." --"New York Times

From the Publisher:

Christopher Lee is one of the world's most iconic horror and fantasy actors - coming to prominence with the 1957 film `The Curse of Frankenstein' in which he played Frankenstein's monster. This began a long association with the film studio Hammer - with whom he made a further eleven films including the Transylvanian bloodsucker himself in the 1958 `Dracula', Kharis in `The Mummy' (1959), Sir Henry Baskerville in `The Hound of the Baskervilles' (1959) and Rasputin in `Rasputin, the Mad Monk' (1966). He also starred in two Denis Wheatley films `The Devil Rides Out (1967) and `To the Devil a Daughter' (1976).

Most recently, he has starred in `The Colour of Magic' (2008) `The Golden Compass' (2007), `Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith' (2005) & `Star Wars: Attack of the Clones' (2002) and as Saruman in the recent `The Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
