The Phantom

  • Insolent boy! This slave of fashion, basking in your glory! Ignorant fool! This brave young suitor, sharing in my triumph!
  • Flattering child you shall know me. See why in shadow I hide. Look at your face in the mirror… I am there inside!
  • Wandering child, so lost, so helpless, yearning for my guidance.
  • Too long you've wandered in winter far from my fathering gaze.
  • Angel of Music, you denied me, turning from true beauty. Angel of Music, do not shun me. Come to your strange Angel.
  • Now, let it be war upon you both!
  • You will curse the day you did not do all that the Phantom asked of you!
  • This face, which earned a mother's fear and loathing. A mask, my first unfeeling scrap of clothing...
  • The world showed no compassion to me!
  • You alone can make my song take flight. It's over now, the music of the night!
  • Start a new life with me! Buy his freedom with your love! Refuse me and you'll send your lover to his death! This is the choice. This is the point of no return!
  • You try my patience. Make your choice.
  • So do you end your days with me or do you send him to his grave?
  • 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?
  • 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...
  • 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!
  • Stranger than you dreamed it, can you even dare to look or bear to think of me?
  • Pity comes too late! Turn around and face your fate: an eternity of this before your eyes...
  • 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!
  • Hounded out by everyone. Met with hatred everywhere. No kind words from anyone, no compassion anywhere... Christine! Why? Why!
  • His life is now the prize which you must earn.
  • Too late for turning back, too late for prayers and useless pity...!
  • Take him, forget me, forget all of this... Leave me alone. Forget all you've seen. Go now, don't let them find you.
  • Christine, I love you...
  • 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...
  • I gave you my music... Made your song take wing... and now, how you've repaid me: denied me and betrayed me...
  • Sing once again with me our strange duet. My power over you grows stronger yet.
  • 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.
  • Sing, my angel of music!
  • I am your angel of music. Come to me, angel of music...
  • That fate which condemns me to wallow in blood has also denied me the joys of the flesh.
  • Come, we must return. Those two fools who run my theatre will be missing you.
  • Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the light you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be! Only then can you belong to me.
  • Why so silent, good messieurs? Did you think that I have left you for good?
  • You have come here in pursuit of your deepest urge, in pursuit of that wish, which 'til now has been silent, silent...
  • Take the boat, swear to me never to tell the secret you know of the angel in hell.
  • Perhaps it is you who are the toad.
  • Our Don Juan must lose some weight. It's not healthy in a man of Piangi's age.
  • Either way you choose, you cannot win.

Christine Daaé

  • Father once spoke of an angel, I used to dream he'd appear
  • Angel I hear you speak, I listen, stay by my side-guide me
  • The phantom of the opera is here, inside my mind
  • He's there, the phantom of the opera
  • I remember there was mist...
  • But his voice filled my spirit with a strange, sweet sound. In the night there was music in my mind, and through music my soul began, to soar. And I heard as I never heard before.
  • Yet in his eyes all the sadness of the world, those pleading eyes that both threaten and adore
  • All I want is freedom a world with no more night
  • Passing bells and sculpted angels...cold and monumental. Seem for you the wrong companions-you were warm and gentle
  • Angel of music, I denied you, turning from true beauty!
  • 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.
  • No thoughts within her head but thoughts of joy, no dreams within her heart but dreams of love
  • In my mind i have already imagined our bodies entwining, defenceless and silent...
  • When will the flames at last consume us?
  • This haunted face, holds no horror for me now. It's in your soul that the true distortion lies.
  • Farewell my fallen idol and false friend
  • Pitiful creature of darkness, what kind of life have you known? God give me courage to show you. You are not alone!
  • Who was that shape in the shadows? Whose is the face in the mask?
  • Angel, my soul was weak - forgive me. Enter at last, Master.
  • I gave you my mind blindly...
  • The tears I might have shed for your dark fate grow cold and turn to tears of hate!
  • Angel of music, you deceived me...
  • Your spirit and my voice in one combined
  • Have you gorged yourself at last, in your lust for blood? Am I now to be prey to your lust for flesh?
  • The Phantom of the Opera will kill and kill again!
  • My God, who is this man who hunts to kill? I can't escape from him, I never will!
  • In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came.
  • Those who have seen your face draw back in fear.
