I dedicate this site to those who know what it is to sacrifice oneself for love; to those who know how difficult it is not to be like anyone else; to those who are not indifferent

"Phantomania" in figures and pictures

Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman

The musical 'The Phantom of the Opera' by Andrew Lloyd Webber was titled 'The Show of the Century' - during 4 years it gathered $ 4.5 billion - more than any other stage show, movie or series in history!

More than 20 movies were made after Leroux' novel

The Index page of one of English phan-sites

"Phantom of the Opera Nexus" - the thematic portal-guide - had had more than a thousand of English-language phan sites. "Why no Russian one?" - I thought and decided to create this site

The cover of
Brigitta d'Arcy's novel

During the recent years about 15 books or more were written after the classic plot, among them 'Phantom' by Susan Kay, "Masquerade" by Terry Pratchett, "Le Fantome: the last days of his life and his soul rescue" by Brigitta d'Arcy and others.

&quotThe Phantom of the Opera is there - inside my mind..."

The necessary preface

You're on the index page of the Russian-language fan site dedicated to the Phantom of the Opera legend. In the world Internet thousands of sites, photos, reviews, phanphics are dedicated to this legend. Being a Phan, I decided that it was time to make a comprehensive site in our Russian Internet, too. Welcome to the legend!

I invite all those who believe in the magic power of Music, and those who hasn't forgotten that Love is omnipotent, to join me in a journew through space and time.

A note. Here on the site I welcome both phans and those who doesn't know anything of this story. This journey is created to be interesting even for those who have never heard the title 'the Phantom of the Opera' before. But I hope that phans will also be able to find here something interesting. Especially in the 'Legend continues' section.
