PostSubject: Leroux's 'Le Fantôme de l'Opéra': The Centenary!   Wed Sep 23, 2009 12:31 pm

Just to spread the word, today marks the 100th anniversary of the appearance of the first installment of Gaston Leroux's Le Fantôme de l'Opéra in Le Gaulois, the French paper in which the novel was initially serialised prior to publication in book format the following year in 1910. 

To celebrate this achievement and to coincide with the beginning of Phantom Fans' Week in Las Vegas, a brand new Phantom Twitter stream has been launched to spread the word of the centenary and the latest news and developments concerning the Opera Ghost. Eventually it is hoped the stream will be used to release exciting new ongoing research currently being undertaken into the novel and all its subsequent adaptations (including, of course, the Lloyd Webber musical) in areas never previously explored. The more fans who join the stream, the better, so we can spread word of the centenary to the wider world and draw attention to all things Phantom!  The Leroux family is watching the feed so it would be good to show them how beloved this story is!  

Please follow by clicking here, navigating towards the Twitter page and, once logged on/signed up, clicking the 'Follow' button.

Happy 100th birthday Phantom! I paid my own tribute to it in my own weird way:

I'm also making a cake and special Phantom pancakes.

I watched the 2004 film and bowed to my Phantom shrine, does that count?

I'm a Phan. What can I say? I have all sorts of Phantom memorabilia, therefore, I created a shrine to Erik, the Phantom. *long sigh*

I actually had a lovely one a few months ago, but my dog ate my fake rose, and I lent out my copy of The Phantom of the Opera: A New Version which has yet to be returned (*cough* BlackMaskWhiteMask *cough*)
