Talented singer Christine Daae (Teri Polo) is sent to the Paris Opera House by her benefactor, Count Philippe de Chagny (Adam Storke), for vocal instruction. Upon arrival, her natural talent is rejected by arrogant opera director Cholet (Ian Richardson), but she is taken under the wing of the disfigured Erik (Charles Dance) -- who masquerades as the vengeful Phantom of the Opera.
