Having vanquished the demon, the Phantom swore that never again would he wear the mask. He cherished his last farewell, then consigned himself to oblivion. As he disappeared from Christine's sight, he had finally decided to abide by the mage's law. Or so he had thought. The phantom had almost vanished when he heard a word for the first time in what seemed a lifetime: "Erik!" Christine had shouted, and the Phantom of the Opera was no more. In front of his love, Christine, now stood Erik the noble wizard.
The Phantom of the Opera (French: Le Fantôme de l'Opéra) is a novel by French writer Gaston Leroux. It was published in volume form in April 1910. The novel is partly inspired by historical events at the Paris Opera during the nineteenth century and an apocryphal tale concerning the use of a former ballet pupil's skeleton in Hector Berlioz's 1841 production of Der Freischütz. Nowadays, it is overshadowed by the success of its various stage and film adaptations.
