This Musical Drama was based on Andrew Lloyd Webber's celebrated musical
phenomenon. The Phantom of the Opera tells the story of a disfigured
musical genius (Gerard Butler) who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris
Opera, waging a reign of terror over its occupants. When he falls in love
with the lovely Christine (Emmy Rossum), 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.
Warner Bros. informs us that it took 9 hours just to fit Gerard Butler with full make up and prosthetics.
