    Summary

    A plague has descended on Paris and the Comte de Chagny invites one hundred of his closest friends, artists, and servants to escape to his ancestral home. Of course, an unwelcome mummer slips in before the doors are welded shut. Is it Christine's Angel of Music or something more sinister?

    The Masque of the Red Death, enacted by Leroux’s characters, with blatant COVID references. The characters are mostly canon compliant, but the plot diverges and will never meet up with the rest of Leroux because, well, you know how this ends.

    Summary

    Erik takes Christine on a strange and dark journey from Paris to Lahore where she learns about his life in Punjab, before Persia, and long before the Opera house. Christine must learn how to overcome the challenge and horror of her marriage. Erik's redemption arc is on a much longer timeline.

    Leroux-based, post Leroux. Lots of opera and stories within stories.
