The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Prologue and Chapter 1 After receiving feedback from many of you with your suggestions on which great classics you would like me to tackle, I made a decision to begin this journey with The Phantom of the Opera.  Set in Paris and originally serialized, just as I intend to do with the audiobook, it was published in the early 20th Century.  It has since been made famous by the 1925 Lon Chaney film and the Musical written by Andrew Lloyd-Webber in 1986.  I hope you enjoy my first Opera Vox Audiobook.
