Cora, Phantom's Daughter
Cora has spent fourteen of her sixteen years of life living in the dark abyss beneath the Opera Populaire with her father, the infamous Phantom of the Opera. She has always been forbidden to go above and see the world...until now. When her father takes her up above to see her first opera, strange events are set into motion. The famous prima donna Christine Daae - now Christine de Chagny - appears on the scene with her husband Raoul and her fifteen year old daughter, Harmony, to sing once more for the world. But Cora and the Phantom wait in the shadows with growing jealousy. As Cora is taught the ways of the music of the night by her father and Harmony the ways of a prima donna, chaos erupts, and for the first time, Cora has the chance to learn what love truly is. A dark obsession or a heart-rending thrill? She has hidden her face so the world will never find her, but now her true self is about to be unmasked. Will she follow the murderous ways of her father, the Phantom, or the compassionate nature of her mother, Christine Daae?
