WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The year is 1907. A decade after his disappearance from the Paris Opera House, The Phantom has escaped to a new life in New York City. There he lives among the joyrides and freak shows of Coney Island. In this electrically charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar, but he has never stopped yearning for his true love and musical protégée, Christine Daaé.
And what has become of Christine? Now one of the world's finest sopranos, she accepts an invitation to travel from Paris to N.Y.C. to perform at a renowned opera house. Her marriage to Raoul is suffering at the hands of his drinking and gambling, and they desperately need the financial rewards that the United States can give them.
Now The Phantom thinks he has another chance. In a final bid to win back Christine's love, he lures her, Raoul, and their young son, Gustave, from Manhattan to the glittering world of Coney Island.
