At present time (1993), many people are about to enjoy "The Phantom of the Opera" performance of a long ago made opera, back in 1881. However, that piece of art will soon become covered with blood of an innocent as the great ceiling chandelier will crush down at the crowd.

You're playing Raoul Montand, a detective who has been asked for help by his old friend Monsieur Brie. Bringing you to a crime scene, he leaves you in hope you'll find some clues and prevent this terror from happening all over again. Supposedly, it is a deed of the long dead phantom Erik, who did the same kind of trouble back in 1881. You are about to find out what secrets lie beneath the surface as you look for clues here in present time, and back in 1881.

Present actress Christine Florent is somehow connected to the past actress Christine Daae, both within roots as much as with role playing. Though in the past you won't be known as a detective but more as Christine's fiancee or someone close to that.

This point and click adventure game is available on either four 3.5" floppy discs or CD but only the CD version includes speech. Most of the game is happening inside the opera house, with an exception to numerous tunnels and secret sewer passages beneath the opera house that are supposedly the phantom's residental places. Find who cut off that big lamp and save Christine from that phantom in order to prevent opera acts from being terrorised again.
