The Mirror (Angel of Music reprise)

PHANTOM'S VOICE
Insolent boy!
This slave
of fashion
basking in your
glory!

Ignorant fool!
This brave
young suitor,
sharing in my
triumph!

CHRISTINE
Angel! I hear you!
Speak -
I listen . . .
stay by my side,
guide me!

Angel, my soul was weak -
forgive me . . .
enter at last,
Master!

PHANTOM'S VOICE
Flattering child,
you shall know me,
see why in shadow
I hide!

Look at your face
in the mirror -
I am there
inside!

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music!
Guide and guardian!
Grant to me your
glory!

Angel of Music!
Hide no longer!
Come to me, strange
Angel...

PHANTOM'S VOICE
I am your Angel ...
Come to me: Angel of Music ...

RAOUL
Whose is that voice . . .?
Who is that in there . . .?

PHANTOM
I am your Angel of Music . . .
Come to me: Angel of Music . . .

RAOUL
Christine! Angel!


Phantom of the Opera

CHRISTINE
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 . . .

PHANTOM
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 . . .

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

PHANTOM
It's me
they hear . . .

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

OFFSTAGE VOICES
He's there,
the Phantom of the Opera . . .
Beware
the Phantom of the Opera . . .

PHANTOM
In all
your fantasies,
you always
knew
that man
and mystery . . .

CHRISTINE
. . . were both
in you . . .

BOTH
And in
this labyrinth,
where night
is blind,
the Phantom of the Opera
is there/here
inside your/my mind . . .

PHANTOM
Sing, my Angel of Music!

CHRISTINE
He's there,
the Phantom of the Opera . . .


Music of the Night

PHANTOM
I have brought you
to the seat of sweet
music's throne . . .
to this kingdom
where all must pay
homage to music . . .
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 . . .

Night-time 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 surround you . . .
Feel it, hear it,
closing in around you . . .
Open up your mind,
let your fantasies unwind,
in this darkness which
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 world
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 . . .


I remember/Stranger than you dreamt it

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 . . .

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

PHANTOM
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 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, who
seems a beast, but secretly
dreams of beauty,
secretly . . .
secretly . . .

Oh, Christine . . .

Come we must return -
those two fools
who run my theatre
will be missing you.


Why Have you brought me here/Raoul, I've been there

RAOUL
Why have you brought us here?

CHRISTINE
Don't take me back there!

RAOUL
We must return!

CHRISTINE
He'll kill me!

RAOUL
Be still now . . .

CHRISTINE
His eyes will find me there!

RAOUL
Christine, don't say that . . .

CHRISTINE
Those eyes that burn!

RAOUL
Don't even think it . . .

CHRlSTlNE
And if he has to kill
a thousand men -

RAOUL
Forget this waking nightmare . . .

CHRISTINE
The Phantom of the Opera will kill . . .

RAOUL This phantom is a fable . . .
Believe me . . .

CHRISTINE
. . . and kill again!

RAOUL
There is no Phantom of the Opera . . .

CHRISTINE
My God, who is this man . . .

RAOUL
My God, who is this man . . .

CHRISTINE
. . . who hunts to kill . . .?

RAOUL
. . . this mask of death . . .?

CHRISTINE
I can't escape from him . . .

RAOUL
Whose is this voice you hear . . .

CHRISTINE
. . .I never will!

RAOUL
. . . with every breath . . .?

BOTH
And in this
labyrinth,
where night is blind
the Phantom of the Opera
is here:
inside your/my mind . . .

RAOUL
There is no Phantom of the Opera . . .

CHRISTINE
Raoul, I've been there -
to his world of
unending night . . .
To a world where
the daylight dissolves
into darkness . . .
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 . . .
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 . . .

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

CHRISTINE
Yet in his eyes
all the sadness
of the world . . .
Those pleading eyes,
that both threaten
and adore . . .

RAOUL
Christine . . .
Christine . . .

PHANTOM
Christine . . .

Wandering Child

PHANTOM
Wandering child . . .
so lost . . .
so helpless . . .
yearning for my
guidance . . .

CHRISTINE
Angel . . . or father . . .
friend . . . or
Phantom . . . ?
Who is it there,
staring . . . ?

PHANTOM
Have you
forgotten your Angel . . .?

CHRISTINE
Angel . . . oh, speak . . .
What endless
longings
echo in this
whisper . . .!

PHANTOM
Too long you've wandered
in winter . . .

RAOUL
Once again
she is his . . .

PHANTOM
Far from my
far-reaching gaze . . .

RAOUL
Once again
she returns . . .

CHRISTINE
Wildly my mind
beats against you . . .

PHANTOM
You resist . . .

PHANTOM/CHRISTINE
Yet your/the soul
obeys . . .

RAOUL
. . . to the arms
of her angel . . .
angel or demon . . .
still he calls her . . .
luring her back, from the grave . . .
angel or dark seducer . . .?
Who are you, strange
angel . . .?

PHANTOM
Angel of Music!
You denied me,
turning from true beauty . . .
Angel of Music!
Do not shun me . . .
Come to your strange
Angel . . .

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music!
I denied you,
turning from true beauty . . .
Angel of Music!
My protector . . .
Come to me, strange
Angel . . .

PHANTOM
I am your Angel of Music . . .
Come to me: Angel of Music . . .

RAOUL
Angel of darkness!
Cease this torment!

PHANTOM
I am your Angel of Music . . .
Come to me: Angel of Music . . .

RAOUL
Christine! Christine listen to me!
Whatever you may believe, this man . . .
this thing . . . is not your father!

Let her go! For God's sake, let her go! Christine !

CHRISTINE
Raoul . . .

Point of No Return

CHRISTINE (AS AMINTA)
. . . no thoughts
within her head,
but thoughts of joy!
No dreams
within her heart
but dreams of love!

PASSARINO
Master?

PHANTOM (AS DON JUAN)
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,
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,
decided . . .

Past the point
of no return -
no backward glances:
the games we've played
till now 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 . . .

CHRISTINE (AS AMINTA)
You have brought me
to that moment
where words run dry,
to that moment
where speech
disappears
into silence,
silence . . .

I have come here,
hardly knowing
the reason why . . .
In my mind,
I've already
imagined our
bodies entwining
defenceless and silent -
and now I am
here with you:
no second thoughts,

I've decided,
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 . . .?

BOTH
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 . . .

PHANTOM
Say you'll share with
me one
love, one lifetime . . .
Lead me, save me
from my solitude . . .

Say you want me
with you,
here beside you . . .
Anywhere you go
let me go too -
Christine
that's all I ask of . . .


Down Once More/Track Down This Murderer

PHANTOM
Down once more
to the dungeon
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!

MOB
Track down this murderer!
He must be found!

PHANTOM
Hounded out by
everyone!
Met with hatred
everywhere!
No kind word from
anyone!
No compassion
anywhere!

Christine, Christine . . .
Why, why . . .?



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

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

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!

CHRISTINE
This haunted face
holds no horror
for me now . . .
It's in your soul
that the true
distortion lies . . .

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

Sir, 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!

RAOUL
Free her!
Do what you like
only free her!
Have you no pity?

PHANTOM
Your lover makes
a passionate plea!

CHRISTINE
Please, Raoul, it's useless . . .

RAOUL
I love her!
Does that mean nothing?
I love her!
Show some compassion . . .

PHANTOM
The world showed no
compassion to me!

RAOUL
Christine . . .
Christine . . .

Let me see her . . .

PHANTOM
Be my guest, sir . .

Monsieur, I
bid you welcome!
Did you think that
I would harm her?
Why should 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!

CHRISTINE
The tears I might have shed
for your dark fate
grow cold, and turn to tears
of hate . . .

RAOUL
Christine, forgive
me please forgive me . . .
I did it all
for you, and all for
nothing . . .

CHRISTINE
Farewell
my fallen idol
and false friend . . .
One by one
I've watched
illusions shattered . . .

PHANTOM
Past all hope
of cries for help:
no point in fighting -

RAOUL
Either way
you choose,
he has to win . . .

PHANTOM
For either way
you choose,
you cannot win!

So, do you end
your days with me,
or do you send
him to his grave?

RAOUL
Why make her lie
to you, to save
me?

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music . . .

PHANTOM
Past the point
of no return -

RAOUL
For pity's sake,
Christine, say no!

CHRISTINE
. . . why this torment?

PHANTOM
. . . the final threshold . . .

RAOUL
Don't throw your life
away for my sake . . .

CHRISTINE
When will you see
reason . . .?

PHANTOM
His life is now the prize
which you must earn!

RAOUL
I fought so hard
to free you . . .

CHRISTINE
Angel of Music . . .

PHANTOM
You've passed the point
of no return . . .

CHRISTINE
. . . you deceived me -
I gave my mind
blindly . . .

PHANTOM
You try my patience -
make your choice!

CHRISTINE
Pitiful creature
of darkness . . .
What kind of life
have you known . . .?

God give me courage
to show you
you are not
alone . . .

MOB
Track down this
murderer -
he must be found!
Hunt out this
animal,
who runs to ground!

Too long he's
preyed on us -
but now we know:
the Phantom of the Opera
is there
deep down below . .

Who is this monster,
this murdering beast?
Revenge for Piangi!
Revenge for Buquet!
This creature
must never go free . . .

PHANTOM
Take her - forget me - forget all of this . . .
Leave me alone - forget all you've seen . . .
Go now - don't let them find you!
Take the boat - leave me here - go now,
don't wait . . .
Just take her and go - before it's too late . . .
Go . . .
Go now - go now and leave me!

Masquerade . . .
Paper faces on parade . . .
Masquerade . . .
Hide your face
so the world will
never find you . . .

Christine, I love you . . .

CHRISTINE
Say you'll share with
me, one
love, one lifetime . . .
say the word
and I will follow you . .

RAOUL
Share each day with me . . .

CHRISTINE
. . . each night . . .

BOTH
. . . each morning . . .

PHANTOM
You alone
can make my song take flight -
it's over now, the music of the night . . .
