Phantom of the Opera and its many, many, adaptations

The original novel of Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux was published in the 1880s and yet is still known by today’s audiences. It has been turned into a silent horror film, a sound horror film, a romantic miniseries, and is most widely known as a musical. What about this story is so resonant? What have the many adaptations done to make the story relevant?

  • Great idea! I think it would be really interesting to hone this topic through discussion of the horror/romance dichotomy.. maybe it could even nod towards the much-anticipated adaptation of Beauty and the Beast? (A little off topic but the attraction to the not-so-charming Prince still stands..) – Jessica Marie Farrugia 9 years ago
