Ever wonder if it was real?  Post [1] »


Hello all. How many of you believe the story is true? I do, for one. Check out www.phantomoftheopera.info/cellars to see why.

I don't wonder... I KNOW it was real. Erik is way too incredible to be from someone's imagination.

Oh, and by the way, Zelda...your link doesn't work. I tried going there, but it said it was invalid. Post back here if you find out why, because I am quite intrigued...! :)

I personally believe it is amazing how Gaston Leroux could create such a diverse character from the back of his mind, let alone bring forth the drama and misery that was portrayed in the novel. The detail and care of each of the characters is too real to think otherwise.

The actual Paris Opera house is almost what you would expect to see after reading the book. Under the opera in the cellars is a lake just like the Phantom's lair; vast and unwinding in which it could hide anything and everything inbetween. I've also read speculations that Gaston Leroux based characters off real life people that he knew in life.

It's actually a fact that he based Erik's lair off of those cellars beneath the Paris Opera. :D We were watching a video in my French class on Paris and they mentioned that. ^_^

But yes, I'd like to think it was real, or at least based on real events. :)

Because of most people's over reactive imaginations its really fun and exciting to imagine something is real. I used to get excited that I could travel in time when I was smaller, of course its not real, but none the less it thrilled me to no end that I thought there might be a possibility.

Apparently, Christine was based on a real opera singer. Also, there was a case where a counterweight for the chandelier (not the chandelier itself) fell and killed someone in the audience. And there was a de Chagny family living in Paris at the time. Three of them were named Philippe, Raoul, and Eric! (Not Erik.)

In addition, Erik's deformity is apparently based on a real disease: Porphyria Cutanea Tarda, or PCT. It is basically extreme sensitivity to UV light. If someone who has this disease is exposed to sunlight, they can get permanent scarring, or worse, in just a few hours. If the condition progresses, the patient could get liver damage as well, and be as thin as a corpse all their lives. Perhaps as a baby, Erik received permanent damage from ambient sunlight coming through a window or something. In the old days, people with PCT often wore long, dark clothing, wide-brimmed hats, and masks to prevent further sun damage.

Other forms of porphyria can lead to craving for blood as well. Let's see... A person who can't go out in the sun and who likes to drink blood. What legend may this disease have contributed to?


It's wiser to be mad... in a world that's gone insane!
