Description

The Phantom of the Opera (Book with CD)
Adapted by    Catherine Washbourne
Illustrator    Hélène Druvert
Narrated by    Domitille and Amaury
Translator    Gillian Rosner

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.

Revisiting the famous novel by Gaston Leroux, this faithful adaptation retells the story for a young audience in beautiful illustrations, and includes a 30-minute CD on which the story is read aloud, accompanied by original music.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
