The Persian assists Raoul, who is now bewildered by everything to do with the Persian.Possible Discussion Questions:
-Putting aside any idea gleaned from Kay's novel, why do you think the Persian holds no hatred for Erik. What, from Leroux's information, do you truly think their relationship was?
-Why do you feel the Persian goes out of his way to assist Raoul, knowing the danger that lie before them. It is truly to aide Christine, or could he have other motives?
-Why do you think Leroux brings up class (dress code at the opera), yet again, when it is a crucial and suspenseful point in the plot?
