by | Read by Bill Homewood

Classics • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1909

Bill Homewood, a Shakespearean actor and narrator of many literary classics, turns his vast performing experience to Gaston Leroux's well-known horror story, originally published in 1910. While listeners may recognize the story from its Broadway musical adaptation or from films, Homewood's deep, melodious voice and flawless French accent offer a fresh perspective on the tale of the mysterious ghost that is haunting the Paris Opera House. Despite Homewood's talent for differentiating characters and voicing men and women of all ages and backgrounds, his slow pace may challenge listeners who are grappling with the formal language, the large cast, and the story's time shifts. That being said, patient listeners will appreciate this truly scary story and its historical context. E.Q. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
