9780141191508: The Phantom of the Opera (Penguin Classics)

A sparkling new translation of the novel that inspired the most popular stage musical of all time.

Rumors abound that a ghost stalks the dark passages and cellars of the Paris Opera House. No one has actually seen this Phantom, but Christine Daaé, a beautiful and talented young singer, has heard his voice. He is her "Angel of Music," coaching her to sing as she never could before. When the handsome Viscount begins to court Christine, the mysterious Phantom-consumed by jealousy-rises up to seek revenge.

This new translation of The Phantom of the Opera captures the Gothic horror and tragic romance of Gaston Leroux's timeless original. It is published with a new introduction that examines the Phantom's legacy and uncovers the secrets of the Paris Opera.

From the Publisher:

The novel that inspired the Lon Chaney film and the hit musical. "The wildest and most fantastic of tales ."--New York Times Book Review.

From the Inside Flap:

The lights dim at the Paris Opera House. The exquisite Christine Daae enraptures the audience with her mellifluous voice. Immediately, Raoul de Chagny falls deeply in love. But the legend of the disfigured "opera ghost" haunts the performance, and as Raoul begins his pursuit of Christine, he is pulled into the depths of the opera house, and into the depths of human emotions. Soon Raoul discovers that the ghost is real and that he wields a terrifying power over Christine--a power as unimaginable as the ghost's masked face. As Raoul and the ghost vie for Christine's love, a journey begins into the dark recesses of the human heart, where desire, vulnerability, fear, and violence unravel in a tragic confrontation.

Descrizione libro Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2012. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Revised. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Phantom of the Opera is Gaston Leroux s exquisite blend of Gothic horror and tragic romance, which formed the basis for a world-renowned stage musical. This Penguin Classics edition is translated with notes by Mireille Ribiere, and an introduction by Jann Matlock. 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. The Phantom haunts the imagination of the beautiful and talented singer Christine Daae, appearing to her as the Angel of Music - a disembodied voice, coaching her to sing as she never could before. When Christine is courted by a handsome young Viscount, the Phantom is consumed by jealousy and seeks revenge. And when Christine suddenly disappears after a triumphant singing performance, it becomes clear that the Phantom s time has come. With its pervading atmosphere of menace, tinged with dark humour, The Phantom of the Opera (1910) has inspired film, stage and literature since its publication, including Andrew Lloyd Webber s Phantom of the Opera, the most successful theatrical show of all time. Mireille Ribiere s highly readable and historically accurate translation captures the drive and drama of Leroux s vivid tale, and is accompanied by extensive notes and further reading. Jann Matlock s fascinating new introduction examines the Phantom s legacy and uncovers the real secrets hidden in the Paris Opera House. Gaston Leroux (1868-1927) was born in Paris, the son of a building contractor. His first novel was serialised in the late 1890s, and with the 1907 publication of The Mystery of the Yellow Room he launched his career as a pioneer of the French detective novel. The Phantom of the Opera (1910) has been Leroux s best-known novel in the English-speaking world ever since the resounding success of the 1925 silent film version. If you enjoyed The Phantom of the Opera, you might like Victor Hugo s Les Miserables, also available in Penguin Classics. Codice libro della libreria AAZ9780141191508
