Description

Filled with passion, love, and suspense, The Phantom of the Opera is a thrilling classic.

Rumors abound that the Paris Opera House is haunted by a ghost. Nobody has ever seen it, but it makes itself known through malevolent acts. First published in book form in 1911, this gothic novel has been fascinating readers for more than a century and is the inspiration for the long-running hit musical. This elegantly designed clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction.

The Knickerbocker Classics bring together the essential works of classic authors from around the world in stunning editions to be collected and enjoyed.
