The list author says: "This list contains items that I have personally read, viewed or listened to, with a Phantom of the Opera" theme. I will add new titles as I acquire them. While a title may appear on this list, it is not necessarily a positive recommendation. Read my reviews for my opinion of these titles."
"This hardcover edition, beautifully illustrated in color by Greg Hildebrant, is suitable for children. There is another edition - same illustrator and publisher, different cover illustration and dimensions - which is an unabridged softcover version of Leroux's original, containing many more illustrations. The unabridged edition is harder to find than the one pictured at left."
"Bregman's 3 part graphic novel, collected in one volume. This tells the story of the Phantom from his life in Persia up thru his arrival in Paris. This edition includes sketch-book selections, including Bregman's concept of Erik unmasked."
"The premise is a good one. However, the story frustratingly shifts from past to present tense within the same sentence and the dialog is stilted and inane. If you can wade thru these, and the haphazard page design, the story is a good one."
"A continuation of Leroux's original story. I liked it, though it has flaws. There are many negative reviews, based on the fact that Meadow's characterizations of Raoul and Christine are somewhat different from Leroux's, but IMHO, they are very plausible."
"This non fiction book details the origins of the story: the Paris Opera House, Leroux and the story. It includes information on the film versions of the story, from Lon Chaney to Maximillian Schell. The last half of the book is devoted to the ALW musical from its inception through the Broadway performances. It also includes the complete libretto."
"Beautifully illustrated version of the POTO. Perfect for cat lovers and children, but you will need to explain the meaning of many of the words. The difficult vocabulary will be over the heads of most children (and a few older folks, too)."
"Trippy 1970's rock opera, with similarities with and themes from "Faust", "The Phantom of the Opera" and "The Picture of Dorian Gray". Lots of Williams' music, as well as one of his early screen performances. I remember going to see this one at the drive-in as a double feature with "Young Frankenstein"."
