Since starting ballet classes at the Paris Opera, Meg has explored every nook and cranny of the majestic, mysterious building, places where she is allowed to go . . . and places where she isn’t! In one of these forbidden passages, she meets the Phantom of the Opera, a mysterious figure who is sobbing his heart out. He is in love with Christine, an opera singer—but she is about to marry her fiancé, Raoul! One evening, Christine mysteriously disappears. Meg is hot on the trail.
