House. As a baby, his mother abandoned him, leaving him with a circus as their “freak act”. He was treated very badly and beaten, so eventually he escaped and found refuge, hiding in an old Opera House. He is a musical genius and writes beautiful music that he would love the world to hear one day.    However, his disfigurement and solitary existence have made him amoral and dangerous.

When the Opera House is bought and renovated by two business men, Mr. Armand and Mr. Richard, the Phantom terrorizes the theatre, making people believe that there is a ghost living there. Eventually, the Phantom decides to negotiate with the owners – he will stop terrorizing the theatre if they agree to stage a performance using his music. The owners agree, and the new show is a huge success, the performance is sold out every night. The public are attracted by the chance of seeing the famous theatre ghost as well as by the amazing music.

The Phantom also has another request, he wants a new star for his show. During an audition, he finds Christine who replaces Prima Donna, the Opera House´s famous diva.
