The Phantom of the Opera abducts a beautiful blonde soprano and brings her to his underground lair. He promises that she will one day grow to love him, but warns that while he will tolerate any other behavior, the one unforgivable act she can perform is to remove his mask.
The Phantom goes to his organ and begins to play. Tempted beyond reason, the soprano approaches the Phantom, pulls away his mask, and reveals the disfigured face beneath. He lunges at her and starts to strangle her, only for her own mask to pull free. Beneath is a disfigured face to match his own. For a moment, the Phantom is taken aback, but then the happy couple embrace, having found their soulmate.
