Storyline

Count de Chagnie has discovered Christine's singing talent on a market place and sent her to his friend Carriere, the director of the Parisian opera. However just when she arrives Carriere's dismissed. His arrogant successor refuses to let a woman of low birth sing in his opera, but graciously employs Christine as gadrobiere for his wife Charlotta, who's installed as first singer. He also fights the phantom, an unknown guy who lives since many years in the catacombs below the opera and was granted privileges by Carriere. However the phantom knows how to defend himself and at the same time helps Christine to her career. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Trivia

The only characters from this version who also appear in the original Gaston Leroux novel are Erik, Christine Daae, La Carlotta, and Joseph Buquet. In the novel, Christine's love interest is Raoul (and not Philippe, which was the name of Raoul's older brother), and the Phantom's past is known to a mysterious character dubbed "The Persian" (rather than an opera manager named Gerard Carriere).

Probably one of my favorite TV movies.

Beautiful Adaptation of the Phantom of the Opera. This is NOT the musical Broadway version. The only music here is the Italian operas the opera house is performing. This version based on a stage version of the book, by noted playwright Arthur Kopit, is beautiful and well performed. I love this movie because of its character development and lack of individuals breaking into song for absolutely no reason, what so ever. The use of the Phantom's various masks to convey his mood is a very unique approach, in this film. The climatic duet between Christine and Eric and a beautiful scene with Burt Lancaster and Charles Dance (Carriere and Eric) are both very moving.

A beautiful, and tragic love story.
