Phantom Of The Opera Script - Dialogue Transcript

Voila! Finally, the Phantom Of The Opera script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum movie based on the musical play.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Phantom Of The Opera. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Thank you sir.



A collector's piece indeed...



every detail exactly as she said...



Will you still play, when all the rest of us are dead...



Lot     then: a chandelier in pieces.



Some of you may recall the strange affair

of the Phantom of the Opera:a mystery never fully explained.



We are told, ladies and gentlemen, that this is the

very chandelier which figures in the famous disaster.



Our workshops have repaired it and wired

parts of it for the new electric light



Perhaps we can frighten away the ghost of so many years ago



with a little illumination, gentlemen






"Opera Populaire



"La Carlotta"



This trophy from our saviours,



From our saviours



From the enslaving force of Rome!






With feasting and dancing and song,



tonight in celebration,



we greet the victorious throng,



returned to bring salvation!



Vicomte, welcome



The trumpets of Carthage resound!



Hear, Romans, now and tremble!



Hark to our step on the ground!



Hear the drums



Hannibal comes!



Sad to return to find the land we love

threatened once more by Roma's far-reaching grasp.



Gentlemen, gentlemen.



Rehearsals, as you see, are under way,

for a new production of Chalumeau's 'Hannibal'.



M. Lefevre, I am rehearsing.



M. Reyer, Mme. Giry, ladies and gentlemen, please,

if I can have your attention, thank you



As you know, for some weeks there

have been rumours of my imminent retirement.



I can now tell you that these were all true,

and it is my pleasure to introduce to you



the two gentlemen who now own the Opera Populaire,

M. Richard Firmin and M. Gilles Andre.



I'm sure you've read that recent fortune in the junk business



scrap metal, actually



He must be rich



And we're deeply honored to introduce

our new patron, the Vicomte de Chagny



It's Raoul, before my father died,? to see



I guess you could say we were childhood sweethearts



He called me Little Lotte



Christine, he's so handsome



My parents and I are honored to support all the arts



Especially the world-renowned Opera Populaire



Gentlemen, Signora Carlitta Guidicelli

our leading soprano for five seasons now.



Bravo! Bravo!



Signor Ubaldo Piangi.



An honour, Signor. I believe

I'm keeping you for your rehearsal



I will be here this evening to

share your great triumph



My apologies, monsieur



Thank you, M. Le Vicomte, once more

if you please, Signor



He love me, he love me



He wouldn't recognize me



He didn't see you



If you please, monsieur



We take a particular pride in the

excellence of our ballets, monsieur



I see why, especially that little blonde angel



My daughter, Meg Giry



And that exceptional beauty, no relation I trust



Christine Daae, promising talent

M. Firmin, very promising



Daae, you say? No relation to the

famous Swedish violinist?



His only child, orphaned at seven when she came

to live and trained in the ballet dormitories.



An orphan, you said?



I think of her as a daughter also



Gentlemen, if you would kindly stand to one side



Hannibals friends!



Oh no, not on my dress, why?



The trumpeting elephants sound -



hear, Romans, now and tremble!



Hark to their step on the ground -



hear the drums!



Hannibal comes!



Ah Daae, all that they want is your dancing



Vicomte is very excited about tonight's gala



He's excited by dancing girls as your new managers



Because I will not be singing



Goodbye, everyone



Now it's finished



Get my doggie, bring my doggie. Bye bye



What do we do?



- Grovel, grovel, grovel

- Right



See you later, because I'm going out



It is finished



Principessa. Bella diva



- Si si

- Goddess of song



Mr. Reyer, isn't there a rather marvelous

aria for Elisa in Act Three of 'Hannibal'?



Yes, yes, yes. Ma no!



Because I have not my costume for act  

because somebody not finish it!



And I hate my hat!



I wonder, Signora, as a personal favour

if you would oblige us



with a private rendition



Unless, of course, M. Reyer objects...



No. Aspetta, aspetta.



If my managers command...



M. Reyer?



if My diva commands?

Yes, I do



Everybody be quite



Monsieur Lefevre, why exactly are you retiring?



My house

I see



You as well









Think of me, think of me, fondly



When we've said goodbye



Remember me once in a while



Please promise me you'll try



When you find that once again



You long to take your heart...






He's here:the Phantom of the Opera...



Signora! Are you all right?



Buquet! For God's sake, man, what's going on there?



Please, monsieur,don't look at me:



as God's my judge,I was not at my post.



Please, monsieur,



there's no one there:



Or if there is, well then, it must be a ghost...



Signora, these things do happen.



For the past years, these things do happen



And did you stop them from happening? No!



And you too, you are as bad as them, these things do happen



Until you stop these things from happening



This thing does not happen!



Ubaldo! Andiamo!

Bring my doggy, and my boxy






Now you see. Byebye I'm leaving



Gentlemen. Good luck.



If you need me, I should be in Australia.



Signora Guidicelli, she will be coming back, won't she?



You think so, monsieur?



I have a message, sir, from the Opera Ghost.



God in heaven, you're all obsessed!



He welcomes you to his opera house



His opera house?



And commands that you continue to?



leave Box Five empty for his use and

reminds you that his salary is due.



His salary?



Monsieur Lefevre used to give him twenty

thousand francs a month.



Twenty thousand francs?



Perhaps you can afford more,



with the Vicomte de Chagny as your patron.



Madame, I had hoped to make that announcement public tonight

when the Vicomte was to join us at the gala



But obviously we shall now have to cancel

as it appears we have lost our star.



There should be a understudy



Understudy? There is no understudy for La Calatta



A full house, Andre, we shall have to refund a full house.



Christine Daae could sing it, sir.



The chorus girl? Don't be silly



She's been taking lessons from a great teacher.






I don't know his name, monsieur



Let her sing for you, monsieur. She has been well taught.



Alright, come on, don't be shy, come on, come on



Just, just...

- From the beginning of the aria, mademoiselle



Andre, this is doing nothing for my nerves.



She's very pretty



Think of me, think of me fondly,



when we've said goodbye.



Remember me once in a while -



please promise me you'll try.



When you find that, once again, you long to

take your heart back and be free



if you ever find a moment



spare a thought for me...



We never said our love was evergreen,



Or as unchanging as the sea



But if you can still remember,



Stop and think of me...



Think of all the things



We've shared and seen -



Don't think about the ways

things might have been...



Think of me, think of me

waking silent and resigned



Imagine me, trying too hard

to put you from my mind



Recall those days,

look back on all those times



Thinks of the things, we'll never do



There will never be a day

when I won't think of you



Can it be?



Can it be Christine?






Long ago, it seem so long ago,



How young and innocent we were



She may not remember me, but I remember her



Flower fade, the fruit of summer fade



They have the season so do we



But please promise me that sometimes



You will think of me!






Ma musica, splendide



"Gustave Daae"



Bravo, bravo, bravissimi



Christine, Christine



Where in the world have you been hiding



Really, you were perfect



I only wish I knew your secret



Who is your great tutor






When your mother brought me here to live



Whenever I come down here alone



To light a candle for my father



A voice from above



And in my dreams



He was always there



You see, when my father lay dying



He told me I will be protected by an angel



An angel of music



Christine, do you believe?



Do you think the spirit of your father tutored you?



who... who



Father once spoke of an angel



I used to dream he'd appear



Now as I sing, I can sense him



And I know he's here



Here in this room he calls me softly



Somewhere inside hiding



Somehow I know he's always with me



He, the unseen genius



Christine, you must have been dreaming



Stories like this can't come true



Christine, you are talking in riddles



And it's not like you



Angle of Music



Guide and guardian



Grant to me your glory

Who is this angel




Angle of Music



Hide no longer



Secret and strange and joy



He's with me, even now



Your hands are cold



All around you



Your face, Christine, is white



It frightens me



Don't be frightened



No, no



You did very well, my dear



He's pleased with you



Ah, Vicomte, I think we've made

quite a discovery with Miss Daae



Perhaps we can present her to you, dear Vicomte



Gentlemen, if you wouldn't mind, this is one

visitor I should prefer to make unaccompanied.



Thank you



It would appear they've met before




Little Lotte let her mind wander



Little Lottie thought: Am I fonder of dolls



or of goblins of shoes




or of riddles of frocks



Those picnics in the attic



or of chocolates



Father playing the violin



As we read to each other dark stories of the North



No - what I love best, Lottie said,



is when I'm asleep in my bed



and the Angel of Music sings songs in my head!'



The Angel of Music sings songs in my head!'



Oh, you're so like an angel tonight



Father said, 'When I'm in heaven, child



I will send the Angel of Music to you'.



Well, father is dead, Raoul, and I have been

visited by the Angel of Music.



Oh, no doubt of it - And now we'll go to supper!



No, Raoul, the Angel of Music is very strict.



Well, I shan't keep you up late!



Raoul, no



You must change. I'll order my carriage.



Two minutes - Little Lottie.



No, Raoul, wait!



Insolent boy!



This slave of fashion



basking in your glory!



Ignorant fool!



This brave young suitor,



sharing in my triumph!



Angel! I hear you!



Speak, I listen...



stay by my side, guide me!



Angel, my soul was weak -



forgive me...



enter at last, Master!



Flattering child



you shall know me,



see why in shadow I hide!



Look at your face in the mirror -



I am there inside!



Angel of Music!



Guide and guardian!



Grant to me your glory!



Angel of Music!



Hide no longer!



Come to me, strange angel



I am your Angel of Music



Come to me: Angel of Music



Whose is that voice?



Who is that in there?



I am your Angel of Music

Christine, Christine



Come to me: Angel of Music



In sleep he sang to me



In dreams he came



That voice which calls to me and speaks my name



And do I dream again for now I find



The Phantom of the Opera is there



Inside my mind



Sing once again with me



Our strange duet



My power over you grows stronger yet



And though you turn from me to glance behind



The Phantom of the Opera is there



Inside your mind



Those who have seen your face



Draw back in fear



I am the mask you wear



It's me they hear...



Your/My spirit and your/my voice in one combined



The Phantom of the Opera is there



Inside your/my mind



He's there, the Phantom of the Opera



Sing, my Angel of Music



Sing, my Angel



Sing for me



Sing, my Angel



Sing for me



I have brought you



to the seat of sweet music's throne



to this kingdom where all must pay homage to music






You have come here,



for one purpose, and one alone



Since the moment I first heard you sing,



I have needed you with me,



to serve me, to sing,



for my music...



my music...



Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation.



Darkness stirs and wakes imagination.



Silently the senses abandon their defences



Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendour.



Grasp it, sense it tremulous and tender.



Turn your face away from the garish light of day,



Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light -



and listen to the music of the night...



Close your eyes and surrender to your darkest dreams!



Purge your thoughts of the life you knew before!



Close your eyes,let your spirit start to soar!



And you'll live as you've never lived before



Softly, deftly, music shall caress you



Hear it, feel it, secretly possess you



Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind,



in this darkness that you know you cannot fight



the darkness of the music of the night.



Let your mind start a journey

through a strange, new world!



Leave all thoughts of the life you knew before!



Let your soul take you where you long to be!



Only then can you belong to me



Floating, falling, sweet intoxication!



Touch me, trust me, savour each sensation!



Let the dream begin, let your darker side give in



To the power of the music that I write



The power of the music of the night



You alone can make my song take flight



Help me make the music of the night






Like yellow parchment is his skin...



A great black hole served as the nose that never grew...



You must be always on your guard,



or he will catch you with his magical lasso!



Those who speak of what they know



Find, too late, that prudent silence is wise.



Joseph Buquet, hold your tongue



Keep your hand at the level of your eyes



I remember there was mist



swirling mist upon a vast, glassy lake



There were candles all around,



and on the lake there was a boat,



and in the boat there was a man



Who was that shape in the shadows



Whose is the face in the mask?



Damn you!



You little prying Pandora!



You little demon



Is this what you wanted to see?



Curse you!



You little lying Delilah!



You little viper



Now you cannot ever be free!



Damn you...



Curse you...



Stranger than you dreamt it



Can you even dare to look



or bear to think of me:



this loathsome gargoyle, who burns in bell,



but secretly yearns for heaven,









Fear can turn to love - you'll learn to see

to find the man behind the monster:



this repulsive carcass, who seems a beast

but secretly dreams of beauty,






Oh, Christine...



Come we must return



Those two fools Who run my

theatre Will be missing you.



"Mystery after gala night,"



It says, "Mystery of soprano's flight!"



"Mystified all the papers say,



we are mystified -



we suspect foul play!"



Bad news on soprano scene -



First Carlotta, now Christine!



Still, at least the seats get sold



Gossip's worth its weight in gold...



What a way to run a business!



Spare me these unending trials!



Half your cast disappears,



but the crowd still cheers!






To hell with Gluck and Handel

Have a scandal and you're sure to have a hint!






Will they all walk out?



This is damnable!



Andre, please don't shout...



It's publicity!



And the take is vast!



Free publicity!



But we have no cast...



Andre, have you seen the queue?



Oh, it seems you've got one too



"Dear Andre, what a charming gala!



Christine was in the world's sublime!



We were hardly bereft when Carlotta left -



On that note the diva is a disaster



must you cast her when she's seasons past her prime!



"Dear Firmin,



just a brief reminder:



my salary has not been paid.



Send it care of the ghost,



by return of post






No-one likes a debtor,



so it's better if my orders are obeyed!"



Who would have the gall to send this?



Someone with a puerile brain!



These are both signed "O.G."...



Who the hell is he?



Opera ghost!



It's nothing short of shocking



He's mucking our position!



In addition he wants money



What a funny aberration to expect a large retainer!



Nothing plainer -he is clearly quite insane!



Where is she?



You mean Carlotta?



I mean Miss Daae -where is she?



Well, how should we know?



I want an answer -



I take it that you sent me this note



What's all this nonsense?



Of course not!



Don't look at us!



She's not with you, then?



Of course not!



We're in the dark...



Monsieur, don't argue -



Isn't this the letter you wrote?



And what is it, that we're meant

to have wrote? Written!



"Do not fear for Miss Daae.



The Angel of Music has her under his wing.



Make no attempt to see her again. "



If you didn't write it, who did?



Where is he?



Ah, welcome back!



Your precious patron -



where is he?



What is it now?



I have your letter -



a letter which I rather resent!



And did you send it?



Of course not!



As if he would!



You didn't send it?



Of course not!



What's going on?



You dare to tell me, that this

is not the letter you sent?!



And what is it that I'm meant to have sent?



"Your days at the Opera Populaire are numbered.



Christine Daae will be singing

on your behalf tonight.



Be prepared for a great misfortune,



should you attempt to take her place. "



Far too many notes for my taste -



and most of them about Christine!



All we've heard since we came is Miss Daae's name...



Miss Daae has returned



I hope no words for as far as we're concerned



Where precisely is she now?



I thought it best that she was

alone... She needed rest



May I see her?



No, monsieur, she will see no-one.



Will she sing?



Here, I have a note...



Let me see it!






"Gentlemen, I have now sent you

several notes of the most amiable nature,



detailing how my theatre is to be run.



You have not followed my instructions.



I shall give you one last chance..."



Christine Daae has returned to you,



and I am anxious her career should progress.



In the new production of "Il Muto",



you will therefore cast Carlotta as the Pageboy,



and put Miss Daae in the role of Countess.



The role which Miss Daae plays calls for charm and appeal.



The role of the Pageboy is silent -



which makes my casting, in a word, ideal.



I shall watch the performance from my normal

seat in Box Five, which will be kept empty for me.



Should these commands be ignored, a disaster

beyond your imagination will occur.



"I remain, Gentlemen, Your obedient servant, O.G."






It's all a ploy to help Christine!



Whatever next...?



It's all about a ploy to help Christine



This is insane...



I know who sent this:The Vicomte - her lover!



Indeed? Can you believe this?




O traditori!This is a joke!



This changes nothing!

O mentitori!






You are our star!



And always will be!






The man is mad!



We don't take orders!



Miss Daae will be playing the Pageboy - the silent role...



Carlotta will be playing the lead!



It's useless trying to appease me!



You're only saying this to please me!



Signori, e vero?



Non, non, non voglio udire!



Lasciatemi morire!



O padre mio!






Who scorn his word, beware to those...

You have reviled me!



The angel sees, the angel knows



You have rebuked me!



Signora, pardon us...?



You have replaced me!



Please, Signora, we beseech you...



This hour shall see your darkest fears...



Signora, sing for us!



Don't be a martyr



What new surprises lie in store?

Our star...!



Would you please give this to Miss Daae?



Miss Daae



Your public needs you! We need you, too!



Would you not rather have your precious little ingenue?



Signora, no!



The world wants you!



Prima donna first lady of the stage!



Your devotees are on their knees to implore you!



Can you bow out when they're shouting your name?



Think of how they all adore you!



Prima donna, enchant us once again!



Think of your muse... And of the queues round the theatre!



Can you deny us the triumph in store?



Sing, prima donna, once more!



Christine spoke of an angel...



Prima donna, your song shall live again!



- Think of your public!

- You took a snub, but there's a public who needs you!



- She has heard the voice of the angel of music...

- Those who hear your voice liken you to an angel!



Think of their cry of undying support!



We get our opera



She gets her limelight!



Leading ladies are a trial!



Prima donna, your song shall never die!

You'll sing again, and to unending ovation!



- Orders! Warnings!Lunatic demands!

- Tears... oaths... lunatic demands are regular occurrences!



Think how you'll shine in that final encore!

Surely there'll be further scenes worse than this!



Think, before these demands are rejected!



Who'd believe a diva happy to relieve a chorus girl,



who's gone and slept with the patron?



Raoul and the soubrette,

entwined in love's duet!



Although he may deny,



he must have been with her!



You'd never get away with all this in a play,



but if it's loudly sung and in a foreign tongue



it's just the sort of story audiences adore,



in fact a perfect opera!



Prima donna the world is at your feet!



A nation waits, and how it hates to be cheated!



Light up the stage with that age old rapport!



Sing, prima donna, once more!



Oh, go go



They say that this youth has set my Lady's heart aflame!



His Lordship, sure, would die of shock



His Lordship is a laughing-stock!



Should he suspect her, God protect her!



Shame! Shame! Shame!



This faithless lady's bound for HADES!



Shame! Shame! Shame!



Serafimo - your disguise is perfect.



Who can this be?



Gentle wife, admit your loving husband.



That's exactly something the public loves



My love - I am called to England on affairs of State,

and must leave you with your new maid.



Though I'd happily take the maid with me.



The old fool is leaving!



That's the Countess de Cherbourg



She's invited us to her salon, you know



Nothing like that will endorse our junk business



Scrap metal



Serafimo - away with this pretence!



You cannot speak, but kiss me in my husband's absence!



Poor fool, he makes me laugh!






Time I tried to get a better better half!



Poor fool, he doesn't know!



Hoho, Hoho...



If he knew the truth, he'd never, ever go!



Did I not instruct that Box Five was to be kept empty?



He's here: the Phantom of the Opera...



It's him



Your part is silent, little toad!



A toad, madame? Perhaps it is you who are the toad...



Serafimo, away with this pretence!



You cannot speak, but kiss me in my...



Poor fool, he makes me laugh -






Ladies and gentlemen, we apologize,

the performance will continue in ten minutes' time...



...when the role of the Countess

will be played by Miss Daae.



Until then, we will crave your

indulgence for a few moments



Meanwhile, we'd like to give you the

ballet from Act Three of tonight's opera.






Maestro, the ballet, bring, please



The ballet



The ballet, now, please



One moment, thank you



Thank you



You're fired



Are you alright?



Raoul, we're not safe here



Ladies and gentlemen, please remain in your seats.



Do not panic.



It was an accident... simply an accident



Why have you brought us here?



Don't take me back there!



We must return!



He'll kill me!



His eyes will find me there!



Christine, don't say that...



Those eyes that burn!



Don't even think it...



And if he has to kill a thousand men -



Forget this waking nightmare...



The Phantom of the Opera will kill...

This phantom is a fable...



Believe me...

... and kill again!



There is no Phantom of the Opera...



My God, who is this man...



...who hunts to kill...?



...this mask of death...?



I can't escape from him...



Whose is this voice you hear...



...I never will!



...with every breath...?



And in this labyrinth,



where night is blind



the Phantom of the Opera is here:



inside your/my mind...



There is no Phantom of the Opera...



Raoul, I've been there -



to his world of unending night...



To a world with the daylight dissolves into darkness...






Raoul, I've seen him!



Can I ever forget that sight?



Can I ever escape from that face?



So distorted, deformed, it was hardly a face



in that darkness...






But his voice filled my spirit



with a strange, sweet sound...



In that night there was music in my mind...



And through music my soul began to soar!



And I heard as I'd never heard before...



What you heard was a dream and nothing more...



Yet in his eyes



all the sadness of the world...



Those pleading eyes,



that both threaten and adore...












No more talk of darkness,



Forget these wide-eyed fears.



I'm here, nothing can harm you -



my words will warm and calm you.



Let me be your freedom,



let daylight dry your tears.



I'm here with you, beside you,



to guard you and to guide you...



Say you love me every waking moment,



turn my head with talk of summertime...



Say you need me with you now and always...



Promise me that all you say is true



that's all I ask of you...



Let me be your shelter, let me be your light.



You're safe: No one will find you



your fears are far behind you...



All I want is freedom,



a world with no more night... and you,



always beside me, to hold me and to hide me...



Then say you'll share with me



one love, one lifetime...



let me lead you from your solitude...



Say you need me with you here, beside you...



anywhere you go, let me go too



Christine, that's all I ask of you...



Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime...



say the word and I will follow you...



Share each day with me,



each night, each morning...



Say you love me...

You know I do...



Love me - that's all I ask of you...



Anywhere you go let me go too...



Love me - that's all I ask of you...



I must go



They'll wonder where I am



Come with me, Raoul



Christine, I love you



Order your fine horses!



Be with them at the door!



And soon you'll be beside me!



You'll guard me, and you'll guide me...



I gave you my music...



made your song take wing...



and now how you've repaid me:



denied me and betrayed me...



He was bound to love you



when he heard you sing...






Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime...



say the word and I will follow you...



Share each day with me,



each night, each morning...



You will curse the day you did not do



all that the Phantom asked of you...!



"Bal Masque"



M'sieur Andre?



M'sieur Firmin?



Dear Andre, what a splendid party!



The prologue to a bright new year!



Quite a night! I'm impressed!



Well, one does one's best...



Here's to us! The toast for the city



What a pity that 'Phantom' can't be here.






Paper faces on parade...






Hide your face, so the world will never find you!






Every face a different shade..






Look around -



there's another mask behind you!



Flash of mauve.. Splash of puce...



Fool and king... Ghoul and goose...



Green and black... Queen and priest...



Trace and rouge... Face of beast...






Take your turn, take a ride on the merry-go-round...



in an inhuman race...



Eye of gold... Thigh of blue...



True is false... Who is who...?



Crul of lip... Swirl of gown...



Ace of hearts... Face of clown...






Drink it in, drink it up, till you've drowned



in the light...



in the sound...



But who can name the face...






Grinning yellows, spinning reds...






Take your fill -



let the spectacle astound you!






Burning glances, turning heads...






Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you!






Seething shadows, breathing lies...






You can fool any friend who ever knew you!






Leering satyrs, peering eyes...






Run and hide -



but a face will still pursue you!



What a night!



What a crowd!



Makes you glad!



Makes you proud!



All the creme de la creme!



Watching us watching them!

And all our fears are in the past!



Six months...



Of relief!



Of delight!



Of Elysian peace!



And we can breathe at last!

No more notes!



No more ghosts!



Here's a health!



Here's a toast: to a prosperous year!



To the new chandelier!



to the hear



And may its splendour never

fade! Six months! What a joy!



What a change!



What a blessed release!



And what a masquerade!



Think of it! A secret engagement!



Look - your future bride!



Just think of it!



But why is it secret?



What have we to hide?



You promised me



No, Raoul, please don't do this



Well, let them see



It's an engagement, not a crime!



Christine, What are you afraid of?



Let's not argue...

Let's not argue...



Please pretend...

I can only hope I'll...



You will...



...understand in time...






Paper faces on parade!






Hide your face, so the world will never find you!






Every face a different shade!






Look around -



There's another mask behind you!






Burning glances turning heads...






Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you!






Grinning yellows, spinning reds...






Take your fill -



let the spectacle astound you!



Why so silent, good messieurs?



Did you think that I had left you for good?



Have you missed me, good messieurs?



I have written you an opera!



Here I bring the finished score



"Don Juan Triumphant"!



Fondest greetings to you all!



A few instructions just before rehearsal starts:



Carlotta must be taught to act, not her normal trick



of strutting round the stage.



Our Don Juan must lose some weight -



it's not healthy in a man of Piangi's age.



And my managers must learn that their place is in an office, not the arts.



As for our star, Miss Christine Daae...



No doubt she'll do her best - it's true her voice is good.



She knows, though, should she wish to excel



she has much still to learn, if pride will let her return to me



Her teacher, her teacher...



Your chains are still mine



You belong to me



Madame Giry. Madame Giry...



Please, Monsieur, I know no more than anyone else.



That's not true.



Monsieur, don't ask, there have been too many accidents



Accidents? Please, Madame Giry, for all our sakes...



Very well.



It was years ago.



There was a travelling fair in the city.






I was very young, studying to be a ballerina



One of many



Living in the dormitory of the opera house



Come, come, come inside



Come and see the devil's child



? the devil's child



Devil's child



Murder, murder



Which way?






I have hidden him from the world and its cruelty is



He has known nothing else of life since then



Except this opera house



It was his playground and now his artistic domain



He's a genius, he's an architect and designer



He's a composer and a magician



A genius, monsieur



But clearly, Madame Giry, genius has turned to madness






Ou vas tu, mademoiselle?



The cemetery



To my father's grave, please



Where have they gone?



Oh, the cemetery



In sleep he sang to me



In dreams he came



That voice which calls to me and speaks my name



Little Lotte thought of everything and nothing



Her Father promised her that he would send her the Angel of Music.



Her father promised her...



Her father promised her



You were once my one companion...



you were all that mattered...



You were once a friend and father -



then my world was shattered...



Wishing you were somehow here again...



wishing you were somehow near...



Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed,



somehow you would be here...



Wishing I could hear your voice again...



knowing that I never would...



Dreaming of you won't help me to do,



all that you dreamed I could!



Passing bells and sculpted angels,



cold and monumental.



Seem, for you, the wrong companions,



you were warm and gentle.



Too many years fighting back tears,



why can't the past just die!



Wishing you were somehow here again,



knowing we must say goodbye!



Try to forgive, teach me to live!



Give me the strength to try!



No more memories, no more silent tears!



No more gazing across the wasted years!



Help me say goodbye...



help me say goodbye!



Wandering child,



So lost, so helpless



Yearning for my guidance



Angel or father?



Friend or phantom?



Who is it there, staring?



Have you forgotten your Angel?



Angel, oh, speak



What endless longings



Echo in this whisper



Too long you've wandered in winter



Far from my fathering gaze



Wildly my mind beats against you



You resist



Yet your/the soul obeys...



Angel of Music!



You denied me/I denied you



Turning from true beauty



Angel of Music!



Do not shun me/My protector



Come to me/your strange Angel...



I am your Angel of Music...



Come to me; Angel of Music

No, Christine, wait!









Whatever you believe,



this man - this thing - is not your father!



No, Raoul, no



Not like this



Now, let it be war upon you both!



We have all been blind



And yet the answer is staring us in the face



This could be the chance



To ensnare our clever friend



We're listening...



Go on.



We shall play his game



Perform his work, but remember we hold the ace



For if Miss Daae sings



He is certain to attend



We are certain the doors are barred



We are certain the police are there



We are certain they're armed



The curtain falls



His reign will end!



Raoul, I'm frightened...



Don't make me do this



Raoul, it scares me,



Don't put me through this ordeal by fire.



He'll take me, I know



We'll be parted forever...



He won't let me go.



What I once used to dream, I now dread.



If he finds me, it won't ever end.



And he'll always be there,



singing songs in my head...



He'll always be there,



singing songs in my head...



You said yourself,



He was nothing but a man...



Yet while he lives,



He will haunt us 'til we're dead.



Twisted every way



What answer can I give?



Am I to risk my life



To win the chance to live?



Can I betray the man



Who once inspired my voice?



Do I become his prey?



Do I have any choice?



He kills without a thought



He murders all that's good



I know I can't refuse...



And yet, I wish I could



Oh God, if I agree



What horrors wait for me



In this, the Phantom's opera



Christine, Christine



Don't think that I don't care



But every hope, and every prayer



rests on you now



Seal my fate tonight



I hate to have to cut the fun short



But the joke's wearing thin



Let the audience in



Let my opera begin!



"Don Juan"



Here the sire may serve the dam,



here the master takes his meat!



Here the sacrificial lamb



utters one despairing bleat!



Poor young maiden! For the thrill



on your tongue of stolen sweets



you will have to pay the bill -



tangled in the winding sheets!



Serve the meal and serve the maid!



Serve the meal and serve the maid



Serve the master so that, when



tables, plans and maids are laid,



Don Juan triumphs once again!



Passarino, faithful friend,



once again recite the plan.



Your young guest believes I'm you -



I, the master, you, the man



When you met you wore my cloak,



she cannot see your face.



She believes she dines with me,



in her master's borrowed place!



Furtively, we'll scoff and quaff,



stealing what, in truth, is mine.



When it's late and modesty



starts to mellow, with the wine...



You come home! I use your voice -



slam the door like crack of doom!



I shall say: "come - hide with me!



Where, oh, where? Of course - my room!"



Poor thing hasn't got a chance!



Here's my hat, my cloak and sword.



Conquest is assured,



if I do not forget myself and laugh...



No thoughts



within her head,



but thoughts of joy!



No dreams



within her heart



but dreams of love!






Passarino - go away!



For the trap is set and waits for its prey...



You have come here



in pursuit of your deepest urge,



in pursuit of that wish,



which till now has been silent,






I have brought you,



that our passions may fuse and merge -



in your mind



you've already succumbed to me



dropped all defences



completely succumbed to me -



now you are here with me:



no second thoughts,



you've decided,






Past the point of no return -



no backward glances:



Our games of make-believe are at an end



Past all thought of "if" or "when" -



no use resisting:



abandon thought,



and let the dream descend...



What raging fire shall flood the soul



What rich desire unlocks its door



What sweet seduction lies before us?



Past the point of no return



The final threshold



What warm unspoken secrets



Will we learn



beyond the point of no return?



You have brought me



To that moment when words run dry



To that moment when speech disappears



Into silence






I have come here,



Hardly knowing the reason why



In my mind I've already imagined



Our bodies entwining



Defenseless and silent,



Now I am here with you



No second thoughts



I've decided






Past the point of no return



No going back now



Our passion-play has now at last begun.



Past all thought of right or wrong



One final question



How long should we two wait before we're one?



When will the blood begin to race



The sleeping bud burst into bloom



When will the flames at last consume us?



Past the point of no return



The final threshold



The bridge is crossed



So stand and watch it burn



We've passed the point of no return.



Say you'll share with me



One love, one lifetime



Lead me, save me from my solitude



Say you'll want me



With you here



Beside you



Anywhere you go



Let me go too



Christine that's all I ask of...









You left before me



Oh my God



We'll run, Andre, run



Where did he take her?



Come with me, monsieur



I will take you to him



But remember, keep your hand at the level of your eyes



I'll go with you



No, Meg, you must stay here



Come with me, monsieur






Down once more to the dungeons of my black despair



Down we plunge to the prison of my mind



Down that path into darkness,



deep as hell



Why, you ask,



was I bound and chained



in this cold and dismal place?



Not for any mortal sin



but the wickedness of my abhorrent face



Track down this murderer



He must be found



Track down this murderer



He must be found



Hounded out by everyone



Met with hatred everywhere



No kind words from anyone



No compassion anywhere






Why, why...?



Your hand at the level of your eyes



This is as far as I dare go



Thank you



Have you gorged yourself at last in your lust for blood?



Am I now to be prey to your lust for flesh?



That fate, which condemns me to wallow in blood



Has also denied me the joys of the flesh...



This face, the infection which poisons our love...



This face, which earned a mother's fear and loathing



A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing



Pity comes too late



Turn around and face your fate



An eternity of this before your eyes



This haunted face holds no horror for me now



It's in your soul that the true distortion lies



Wait! I think, my dear, we have a guest




- Raoul!



This is indeed an unparalleled delight



I had rather hoped that you would come



And now my wish comes true



You have truly made my night!

Let me go!



Free her



Do what you like, only free her



Have you no pity?



Your lover makes a passionate plea



Please, Raoul, it's useless



I love her



Does that mean nothing?



I love her



Show some compassion



The world showed no compassion to me!






Let me see her



Be my guest, sir...



Monsieur, I bid you welcome



Did you think that I would harm her?



Why would I make her pay for the sins which are yours?



Order your fine horses now



Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes



Nothing can save you now, except perhaps Christine



Start a new life with me



Buy his freedom with your love!



Refuse me, and you send your lover to his death!



This is the choice,



This is the point of no return!



The tears I might have shed for your dark fate,



Grow cold and turn to tears of hate



Christine, forgive me, please forgive me



I did it all for you, and all for nothing...



Farewell, my fallen idol and false friend



We had such hopes, and now those hopes are shattered

Too late for turning back, Too late for prayers and useless pity



Say you love him, and my life is over!

All hope of cries for help, No point in fighting



For either way you choose, You cannot win

Either way you choose, he has to win



So do you end your days with me



Or do you send him to his grave?



Why make her lie to you to save me?



Angel of Music...

Past the point of no return...



Christine say no!

Who deserved this?



Don't throw your life away for my sake!

The final threshold...



His life is now the prize which you must earn!

Why do you curse mercy?



I fought so hard to free you...



Angel of Music... you deceived me

You've passed the point of no return!



I gave you my mind blindly



You try my patience,



Make your choice!



Pitiful creature of darkness,



What kind of life have you known?



God give me courage to show you,



You are not alone...



Track down this murderer, he must be found!

Take her, forget me,



Forget all of this...



Hunt out this animal, who runs to ground! Leave me alone - forget all you've seen...



Go now - don't let them find you!



Take the boat, swear to me, never to tell



The secret you know, of the angel in hell!



Go now - go now and leave me!






Paper faces on parade...






Hide your face so the world will never find you...



Christine, I love you...



Say you'll share with me one love, one lifetime



Say the word and I will follow you...



Share each day with me, each night, each morning...



You alone, can make my song take flight



It's over now, the music of the night



"Countess de Chagny

Beloved wife and mother"



"Chrisine     -    "



Child of the wilderness



Born into emptiness



Learn to be lonely



Learn to find your way in darkness



Who will be there for you



Comfort and care for you



Learn to be lonely



Learn to be your one companion



Never dreamed out in the world



There are arms to hold you?



You've always known



Your heart was on its own



So laugh in your loneliness



Child of the wilderness



Learn to be lonely



Learn how to love life that is lived alone



Learn to be lonely



Life can be lived



Life can be loved
