Abstract

The substantive story of Gaston Leroux’s The Phantom of the Opera (Le Fantôme de l'Opéra) is largely about contract analysis and whether the managers and “the phantom” have had a “meeting of the minds”—consensus ad idem.

The question is whether the Phantom and the Managers reached a “meeting of the minds” or manifested mutual assent in their contractual remedies. In the end, there was no contract and the managers could have claimed significant losses directly through their contractual terms with the Phantom.
