Based on Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, this silent horror classic features an aspiring young opera singer Christine Daaé (Mary Philbin) who discovers that she has a mysterious admirer intent on helping her become a lead performer. The enigmatic masked presence is Erik, also known as the Phantom (Lon Chaney), a horribly disfigured recluse who lives underneath the Paris Opera House. When the Phantom takes Christine prisoner and demands her devotion and affection, her suitor, Vicomte Raoul de Chagny (Norman Kerry), sets out to rescue her.

Reel Orchestrette (Bradford Reed – pencilina, synth & Geoff Gersh – guitar) is dedicated to the art of live musical accompaniment to silent films. Reed & Gersh have been collaborating together for almost 25 years and formed Reel Orchestrette in 2012.
