In this version of "The Phantom of the Opera," the story takes place at the Royal Opera House in London instead of the Paris Opera House. Years ago, music professor Petrie (Herbert Lom) was hideously burned in a fire but has returned to London where, as the masked Phantom, he terrorizes the opera house that is preparing to perform an opera that had been stolen from him. He lives in the sewer beneath the opera house and kidnaps opera star Christine (Heather Sears), who he loves, so that he can train her to perform his opera. Now, Christine's fiance Harry Hunter (Edward DeSouza) searches for Christine, and, when he finds her, it is Harry who unmasks the Phantom.
