PG-13 | | Drama, Musical, Romance
A young soprano becomes the obsession of a disfigured musical genius who lives beneath the Paris Opéra House. He kidnaps the soprano and forces the owners of the play to keep her as the lead role of the play.
Catherine Zeta-Jones turned down the role of Christine as, having done Chicago (2002), she didn't want to do two singing roles in a row.
Sold. Your number, sir? Thank you. Lot 665, ladies and gentlemen: a papier-mâché musical box in the shape of a barrel organ.
When Christine is in the boat and being shown around the Phantom's lair for the first time, the lock of hair over her left shoulder changes from being very curly to wavy in between shots.
