I still remember the first time I saw the live stage show of The Phantom of the Opera in London as a teenager. Over thirty years later, it still fascinates and achingly pulls on the heartstrings. The tragically disfigured and mysterious phantom haunts the lair beneath the Paris Opera House and whose passionate obsession with Christine Daae leads to tragedy. The sheer scope and drama of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s orchestrations drawn from Gaston Leroux’s novel ‘Le Fantome de I’Opera’ haunt the pages of this amazing new graphic novel. It’s a stunning book that beautifully captures the essence of the story and the heart of the musical adaptation. I loved it, and found the illustrations absolutely do justice to the quality of the original. If you’d like a look inside to see for yourself, please do keep scrolling…
