mask & rose The angel of the opera Rose
One of the best stories/adaptations to the phantom of the opera that I have read happens to be the book,The Angel of the opera: Sherlock Holmes meets the phantom of the opera. I'll give you the summery of the book for those who are interested.

Summery:
The unforgettable place:Paris,1890.The glittering scene: the labyrinthine paris opera house.The irresistible premise:What if Sherlock Holmes,lured across the channel by the beleaguered managers of the Opera House ,unlocks the true sercets motivating the infamous Phantom?
As the Hunchedbacked Quasimodo was the soul of Notra Dame, so is Erik-shadow ruler of the Opera's nether regions-the Opera's true soul. Living at the hights of passion,despising the concernes of ordenary men who are the acknowlaged keepers of his domain in the eyes of the world, the Phantom-defiant and tormented genius that he is poses a persistent threat to his unwilling landlords,lesser men who are not even certain they believe of his existance.
But, as is the case with all problems presented to the great Sherlock Holmes for solution,nothing is quite as it seems at first...as thrilling episode follows even more thrilling episode in a tempestuous drama, played out against the background of one of fiction's most romantically errie settings. Shearlockians and the Phantom's Phandom both will relish Sam Siciliano's sympathetic imagination and find themselves charmed by such a reinvented characters such as Christine Daae ("The Angel") and her arrogant suitor,Raoul de Changny.

I've heard of it and seen it, but, I'm not sure if I would like it... I'm not a fan of Sherlock Holmes, and adding him into the story would be weird to me--like, making it more of a detective novel than a romance.

It is worth a shot. The book is not bad and discribes alot of things and details left out by kay and Gaston. I liked the fact that two great minds are aginst each other. Sure one is sherlock but another one is Erik the man who made the opera popular. In ther book I wanted to see who would win the battle of the minds.
I read it on a reconmendation from a fellow phan she was quite correct and it followed phatom almost to the T. The ending though was a bit weird and did not follow Gaston's novel.There are some characters that act OC esp. The persian,Erik (was a little OChe rarly got mad enough to kill someone which one might expect esp reading Phantom by Kay),though Raoul's brother the count and Raoul was the biggest roles that contradicted Kay's novel (Which sadly had the best discriptions for all characters of the novel). Other then that it was good ,but as i said then ending was a bit off though a sad and beautiful ending was still there.The most you can do is read it what harm can that do? Besides its still poto.

Yes, I may buy it. I looked it up and I may order it.
Does it keep pace with Gaston's novel or does it veer towards the musical (ALW) scenarios: scenes, descriptions, etc.? My biggest annoyance is they Christine should be BLONDE.

It kept pace with the original novel.Gaston would be proud as I said alot of details about how the atmosphere and characters are.Im think it is almost accurate as i said to the "T".Though Again the ending is a bit sketchy. Also Christine she is blonde and as I said it was taken directly from the book. So I won't bother discribing it to you, I'll just letyou read it and you will understand.

Please do not do anything before you learn the basics of breathing and opening the throat. Your teacher is teaching this in a particular order for a reason and you could wind up permanently damaging your voice by taking advice from random strangers on the Internet.

In fact, it's breathing and a relaxed throat that are the real keys to resonance (it's not power or the people in the first row would be deafened). It's the ability to have your voice reflected by hard surfaces that makes the voice carry to the third balcony.
