Tells the story of a disfigured musical genius who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls fatally in love with Christine, the Phantom devotes himself to creating a new star for the Opera, exerting a strange sense of control over the young soprano as he nurtures her extraordinary talents.

For Phantom of the Opera fans, DO NOT MISS the Documentary: Behind the Mask - The Story of the Phantom of the Opera. It gives a glimpse of the development of the Phantom of the Opera stage musical (1986) from the eyes of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cameron Mackintosh, and others who were there in the mid-80s. It includes, among other videos, clips of the historic preview performances of Colm Wilkerson, Sarah Brightman, and Clive Carter at Sydmonton, using the original lyrics of Richard Stilgoe. If you are a Phantom fan, you need to check out this documentary of the stage musical.
The other two special features relate to the 2004 film production. To me, the 2004 cinematic production was marred by the miscasting of an untrained singer Gerard Butler as the Phantom.
Instead, I recommend the 25th anniversary stage production "The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall (2012)".
