Fall is in the air, shadows are getting longer (better for lurking Opera Ghosts), and it’s time to check in about our Phantom of the Opera experiences so far this year!
I started the year off with rereading Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera. I more recently watched Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to his Phantom play. It stirred up a lot of feelings, so I posted a video review if you’d like to check it out (spoiler: I’m not a fan).
I’m still aiming for the Lon Chaney Level of the challenge, by reading one book, watching one filmed play and, still to be done, watching one movie. Haven’t decided which movie yet!
My main Phantom focus lately has been on putting my own Guardian of the Opera series out – Books 1 and 2 are already available, and Book 3 just went up for pre-order last week. Any of them, of course, qualify for this challenge. 🙂
That covers my recent Phantom adventures – now I want to hear about yours! If you’d like a refresher on the challenge, check out the launch post here. And please share in a comment below. I look forward to seeing what you’ve been exploring this year!
