well done!!!


A ghostly actor terrorizes an opera house and its leading lady.

Really a credible version of the story based on the novel by Gaston Leroux - which I have only read in abridged form. I'm pleased that in many ways this episode goes back to the novel rather than treading the path of the (sound) movies with their wronged composer, burned by acid. The choice to end the story rather abruptly in a way much different from the novel was the price they paid for having character development and quite a lot of detail in the early portion. Certainly I don't miss the elaborate mechanical torture chambers of the novel. And, unlike the novel, the Phantom is not allowed to simply slink off and die. Pretty good.

Detailed story, a lot of plot crammed into one episode. Inspiring opera singer takes lessons from a disembodied voice much to the chagrin of her friends and suitor. The phantom makes certain demands on the managers of the opera house and threatens to make things 'uncomfortable' if people don't comply. He dies in the end. Couldn't quite get into it. Could be because I was sorting boxes in the basement while I was listening.

I've never read the book and only seen parts of the most recent movie version of the story. I did enjoy the story even if they never really elaborated on parts of it, rather implying some things. Perhaps someday I'll read the original as it seems to be pretty good if they keep making new versions of it.


A beautiful rendition of the classic, Phantom of the Opera.

Another story about theater and show business without any music, audience, or any kind of background sound effects to give the impression that this story is about theater life. I don't expect "Phantom of the Opera" the musical, but something seems wrong when there is an episode about show business that don't seem to contain any sounds in the background to set the mood. Otherwise, it was fairly well done, but not one of my favorites.


I meant to say, "but something seems wrong when there is an episode about show business that DOESN'T seem to contain any sounds in the background to set the mood." Bad grammar was a typo, lol! I guess there are a few theater sound effects, but not enough, imo. Also, it would have been better if we had a chance to hear Christine sing.
