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

This film is based on a musical by Arthur Kopit and Maury Yeston. The idea for this U.S. version of the Phantom story came about around the same time Ken Hill's version was playing in England, and when Andrew Lloyd Webber produced his own version of the Phantom story a couple of years later, the Kopit/Yeston idea was shelved. The concept was later revived as this television movie, using real operatic sequences, and then brought to life as a complete stage play with Yeston's score (as originally intended). Thus, three different versions were made (2 U.K. and 1 U.S.), with Webber's being the most successful. See more »

I saw this movie 1992 I think... and very often after that, so often that I memorized it. Then someone ruined the VHS- tape and it was lost, but I thought about it many times over the years. Now I just saw it again and I swear I got goosebumps! I love it. I think the last scene with the phantom and Christine (the singing) is the most beautiful confession of love I have EVER seen or heard. I can really feel their emotions (and even the emotions of Philippe where he sits). When an actor can make me feel what the character is supposed to be feeling... that is good acting! I love the costumes, I love how every character seem to fit, even the cop is a little compassionate in the end... I just love it. 10 out of 10
