Quotes

The Phantom: Did I NOT instruct that Box 5 was to be left empty?

Meg Giry: He's here, the phantom of the opera!

Christine: It's him!

Carlotta: Your part is silent, little toad!

The Phantom: A toad, madam? Perhaps it is you who are the toad...

Christine: [sung] 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.

Raoul: [sung] What you heard was a dream and nothing more.

Christine: [sung] Yet in his eyes, all the sadness of the world. Those pleading eyes, that both threaten and adore...

The Phantom: But Christine - 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 secretly... secretly. Oh, Christine.

The Phantom: 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!

Christine Daaé: [sung] 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.

[as they travel to the Phantom's lair]

Christine Daaé: Those who have seen your face draw back in fear. I am the mask you wear...

The Phantom: It's me they hear...

Christine DaaéThe Phantom: Your/my spirit and my/your voice in one combined. The Phantom of the Opera is there, inside my/your mind.

The Phantom: [singing as he descends the staircase at the Masquerade Ball] Why so silent, good monsieurs? Did you think that I had left you for good? Have you missed me, good monsieurs? I have written you an opera! Here I bring the finished score - Don Juan Triumphant! Fondest greetings to you all. A few instructions now before rehearsals start: 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.

[as he leads Christine down the tunnels of the opera]

The Phantom: [sings] 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.

The Phantom: Wandering child, so lost, so helpless, yearning for my guidance.

Christine: Angel or father? Friend of phantom? Who is it there staring?

The Phantom: Have you forgotten your Angel?

Christine: Angel oh speak, what endless longings? Echoing this whisper.

The Phantom: Too long you've waundered in winter. Far from my fathering gaze.

Christine: Wildly my mind beats against you...

The Phantom: You resist...

The PhantomChristine: Yet/but your/the soul obeys...

The PhantomChristine: Angel of Music,you/I denied me/you. Turning from true beauty! Angel of Music, do not shun me/my protector come to your/me, strange Angel!

The Phantom: I am your Angel of Music... Come to me, Angel of Music.

The Phantom: 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!

The Phantom: [Mockingly to Raoul] Order your fine horses now! Raise up your hand to the level of your eyes! Nothing can save you now - except perhaps Christine.

[to Christine]

The Phantom: 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!

Christine: 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.

[walks over to the Phantom, at his organ]

Christine: Who was that shape in the shadows? Whose is that face in the mask?

[touches his face and rips of mask]

The Phantom: [covers face] 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!

[now sad]

The Phantom: Stranger than you dreamt it, can you even bear to look, or dare to think of me?... This lonesome gargoyle who burns in hell but secretly yearns for heaven secretly, secretly but Christine... fear can turn to love you'll learn to see to find the man behind the monster this... repulsive carcass that seems a beast but secretly dreams of beauty secretly, secretly...

[crying]

The Phantom: Oh, Christine.

[Christine hands him the mask]

The Phantom: Come. We must return. Those two fools who run my theater will be missing you.

The Phantom: [sung] 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 Ms. Daae in the role of Countess. The role which Ms. Daae plays calls for charm and appeal. The role of the Pageboy is silent, which makes my casting- in a word... ideal.

[spoken]

The Phantom: 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 imaginations will occur. I remain, gentlemen, you obedient servant. O. G.

The Phantom: 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!

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.

The Phantom: You have come here, in pursuit of your deepest urge. In pursuit of that wish which 'til now has been silent... SILENT! I have brought you, that our passions may fuse and merge. In your mind you've already sucummed to me. Dropped all defenses, completely sucummed to me. Now you are here with me. No second thoughts. You've decided... 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 desires unlock its door? What sweet seductions lie before us? Past the point of no return. The final threshold... what warm unspoken secrets will we learn? Beyond the point of no... return!

Christine Daaé: 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?

The Phantom: [sung] 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 Ms. Daae in the role of Countess. The role which Ms. Daae plays calls for charm and appeal. The role of the Pageboy is silent, which makes my casting-in a word... ideal.

[spoken]

The Phantom: 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 imaginations will occur. I remain, gentlemen, you obedient servant. O. G.

Meg Giry: [singing to 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?

[the Phantom drops a backdrop on Carlotta]

Andre: Signora, these things do happen.

Carlotta: For the past three years, these things do happen!

[to LeFevre]

Carlotta: And did you stop them from happening? No!

[to Firmin and Andre]

Carlotta: And you two - you're as bad as him! "These things do happen!" Ma... until you stop these things from happening, this thing does not happen! Ubaldo! Andiamo! Bring my doggy and my boxy!

[Carlotta storms out with her maid, seamstress, and hairdresser]

Piangi: [to Firmin and Andre] Amateurs!

Carlotta: Bye-bye and ciao! Now you see. Bye-bye, I'm really leaving!

Madame Giry: We take particular pride in the excellence of our ballet, monsieur.

Andre: I see why.

[looking at Meg Giry]

Andre: Especially that little blonde angel!

Madame Giry: My daughter, Meg Giry.

Firmin: [looking at Christine] And THAT exceptional beauty? No relation, I trust?

Madame Giry: Christine Daaé. Promising talent, Monsieur Firmin, very promising.

Andre: Daaé, did you say? N-n-no relation to the famous Swedish violinist?

Madame Giry: His only child. Orphaned at seven, when she came to live and trained in the ballet dormitories.

Firmin: An orphan, you say?

Madame Giry: I think of her as a daughter also.

Madame Giry: [about Christine] Let her sing for you, monsieur; she has been well taught.

Andre: All right. Come on.

[Christine is reluctant]

Andre: Don't be shy. Come on. Come along... just... just...

Reyer: [interrupts] From the beginning of the aria, then. Please, mademoiselle!

Firmin: Andre, this is doing nothing for my nerves.

Andre: Oh, but she's very pretty.

Andre: [trying to convince Carlotta to come back and sing] Your public needs you!

Firmin: We need you, too!

Carlotta: Would you not rather have your precious little ingenue?

AndreFirmin: Signora, no! The world wants you! Prima donna, first lady of the stage! Your devotees are on their knees to implore you!

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

Firmin: Think of how they all adore you!

AndreFirmin: Prima donna, enchant us once again!

Andre: Think of your muse...

Firmin: And of the queues round the theatre!

AndreFirmin: Can you deny us the triumph in store? Sing, prima donna, once more!

Andre: Signor, isn't there a rather marvelous aria for Elissa in Act 3 of Hannibal? Perhaps the signora...

Carlotta: Yes, yes, yes, yes. No! Because I have not my costume for Act 3 because somebody not finish it! And... I HATE MY HAT!
