In 1909, The Phantom of the Opera was first published as a serialization in the French newspaper Le Gaulois. Written by journalist Gaston Leroux, the gothic horror, originally titled Le Fantôme de l'Opéra, is based on events that occurred at the Paris Opera during the 19th century. It has since been adopted for the screen and stage and continues to thrill audiences of all mediums today. Read how the story recently inspired one incredible real-life discovery.
