There are various interpretations of why the old Raoul brings the monkey musique box to her grave and some even think that all the old Raoul parts of the movie are completely useless. However, I'm one of those who believe that while the film would've worked perfectly well even without Raoul travelling anywhere with the musique box, all the old Raoul clips are perhaps the most essential aspect of the entire film's basic point. I think they are the ultimate aspect that drastically differs the film from the stage play.

A monkey symbolizes many things that are strongly related to the story. Essential...

I originally posté this on IMDB's board as VampireOutlaw.

No one wanted a sequel, <-- (generally speaking), it was still made, the critiques hate it, the fans hate it, it keeps on having to close down...Yet it's still here?
I know it has its share of fans, but nonetheless the crucially and strongly negative reception seems to be the situation in general.

So why the bloody hell does ALW not give up? ou if he can't bring himself to, why does he keep on trying with only minor changes?

~ First a sidenote:
Love Never Dies is not a sequel to the 2004 movie because that movie is Joel Schumacher's interpretation...

All right.

So Tumblr has been crazy with this in the last few weeks since Sierra Boggess has left the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera on September 6th. A rather short run, so to say: she did start only on May 14th…

I wasn’t going to write anything about this at first. But now, rumor has it Sierra Boggess has stated that her 2014 run in Broadway was going to be the last time she would play Christine.

Cough cough.

Ha.

Of course.

Bullshit. Bullshit bullshit bullshit bullshit bullshit. BULLSHIT.

Everyone knows Sierra is Cameron Mackintosh’s and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s darling....

haut, retour au début 10 reasons for why Erik/Christine doesn’t work.

Yes, I know I was supposed to publier my l’amour Never Dies rant before, but… this is really to help me write it.

So, short story. Before coming on Fanfiction, I already knew that almost everyone on Earth were E/C shippers. But I was still shocked of seeing the ridiculous number of E/C authors, especially that there are very good ones among them. Now, I’m not being rude, it’s okay to like the E/C pairing (I guess…), but I’m just being really honest. I remember, when I entered the phandom, I was a mild R/C shipper (You know, “I prefer...

 Erik and Christine.
Erik and Christine.
Hi guys, I'm going to compare the original novel and the stage musical that popularise the former.

The Novel

When I first read the book, I was taken aback about how the story was different from the musical. It starts with Joseph Buquet's mysterious death, which was officially ruled as a suicide.
Raoul was a very unlikable character in the novel unlike the musical counterpart, he is always angry with Christine and his relationship with Philippe, his elder brother was really explosive due to disapproval over his relationship with Christine.
Erik still remains the same and in the novel, he's also...

 Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
This article shall pertain to the 'holy trinity' of Phantom. The Leroux, Kay, and Andrew Lloyd Webber versions. The basic idea is to look at each individual portrayal of the Phantom and ascertain approximately the extent of his mental deterioration and psychosis. I will also discuss the probable causes and catalysts for these behaviours.
This is par no means a full psychoanalysis, and in the long run is only meant to calm me down with some logical thinking after a very bad week. I.E. toi don't have to like it ou agree with it.
I shall begin with Leroux since that is the original perception of...

I saw The Phantom of the Opera when I was 12, and I heard the Original Londres Cast Recording of l’amour Never Dies when I was 16. par then my life had gone through some MAJOR changes. For one thing my Dad died 2.75 months after I saw The Phantom of the Opera on stage (believe it ou not) and my life was continuing to get worse, so my personality like the characters in "Love Never Dies" changed with life. What I'm trying to say is "Misery loves company" especially from close friends. When I was 13 I had read "The Phantom of Manhattan" so it was not a surprise to me when Christine died. :(!

 Masquerade!
Masquerade!
Hi everyone, it's been coming to 9 years since I watched the musical in Singapore. I have always want to write this review of the stage version since I had did a comparison on both the movie and stage version!

The Staging

I was stunned par the staging because it was such a spectacular, colourful and whimsical, I also like how each scenes represent dark & light throughout the musical. It was like bringing the realism of what it's like of Palais de Garnier, on which the story is set.
One of my major disappointments was that I did not sit in front where the dramatic chandelier came crashing...

Phantom:
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 musique of the night ...

Close your eyes and surrender to your
darkest dreams!
Purge your thoughts of the life
toi knew before!
Close your eyes,
let your spirit start to soar!
And you'll live
as you've never lived before ...

Softly, deftly,
musique shall surround...

Righty-oh totally bored at this moment and no points for guessing what and who’s in my head, the same thing which is always there, the same thing thats been there since I discovered it, Phantom. Basically I started with the montrer then continued to the book and the film but I'm starting with thoughts on the book as it is the most important. It is the real POTO. I had planned to save lire it until my holiday yet when it came in the post I sat on the floor where I opened it and just read it all. I meant to just start it but once I had read the first pre chapter and learnt that the story was...

Somewhat good news, well i guess it depends on how toi look at it. But before i begin to ramble, here it is. I was on Youtube talking to someone when i decided to check out my subscriptions and decided to check out a new phantomreviewer video. well, im not sure if i have all my notes in the right place but it sounds like there will be a new phantom montrer production. its simply named phantom (of what i kno) and the phantom has a kick cul, ass mask that looks like he came back from a heavy metal concert. i like it! if u want to check it out, heres the link. if it ever comes on tour, i mite do my best to see it *optimistic look*

Christine kisses Erik, who pretended to fulfill a promise, but told a devastating lie. She agrees to marry him in the book, giving up HER dreams. her COMPASSION is her STENTGH. The book was about a women's right to marry who she chooses.
"The Phantom of the Opera" is feminst Raoul follows her to her Father's grave for no reason when he says the Angel of musique isn't real he is being overprotective When Christine knows the truth he is someone to go to for support. He can't save himself from Erik's torture chamber! The Persain was the first Arab character I saw post 9/11. He was heroic, intelligent,...

THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK

Over the past two weeks, six girls have been reported missing, all with a link - a lone, scarlet rose, left at their front door the jour after they vanished. Yet this sinister case has one too many connections with another frightening tale. The Phantom Of the Opera, the tale of Erik, an elusive inventor on the brink of madness and genius. The legendary myth tells that he haunted the ground beneath the Paris Opera House, gradually convincing Christine Daee, an innocent chorus girl that he is an Angel her dead father sent her. The Phantom left a single rose for the girl...

Andrew Lloyd Webber is making a sequel to POTO,called l’amour never dies, and almost every artical that toi see on Wickapeadia,ALW's website, etc, has something that phans don't like........... THE FACT THAT HE'S MAKING ONE IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!! On Phantom message boards there is one about the sequel called"THEY ARE MAKING A SEQUEL TO POTO!" And toi will find out why the story line, how the carracters will change (like one about Meg Giry being gothic), how Andrew Lloyd Webber is making the Giry's be on the bad side and want to kill Christene,( wich makes no sence at all, since the Giry's used to adore Christene), and how all of the above will make the musical crash and burn!!!!!!! While looking through the message boards toi will see commentaires like," ALW should burn the whole score!" and, "I won't be suprised if Phantom goes off Brodway for this..."So if toi want to learn more, toi know where to go ( THEY ARE MAKING A SEQUEL TO PHOTO! Message boards.........)

 I am SO unimpressed with the movie version deformity.
I am SO unimpressed with the movie version deformity.
This is one of those reviews that you'll probably want to haul out the video and read along so toi don't get lost. It will be aléatoire and disjointed. I'm just écriture what I'm thinking as I think it. This is probably also going to offend....oh, well...just about everyone. This is my personal opinion. toi are entitled to yours, I just may not take it too seriously if toi cannot back up your reasoning. There are only so many things toi can use "well I just like it/hate it" as an excuse. I've been a phan for a LONG time and I've studied the story fairly hardcore. I know EXACTLY why I have most...

Curiosity Kills

This was written for the Featuring Luciana challenge. The challenge: Write a oneshot story describing Luciana's thoughs on Erik, shortly before her death.

“I want toi to take off the mask. Please take off the mask.”

    I am standing in front of Erik, begging him to remove the mask that hides his face from me. I want to know his face, to see him.

    “You must excuse me, mademoiselle. I have work to finish.”

    The nerve of him! “I will not excuse you! toi don’t have work to finish! I want toi to take off...

What Annoys Me About The Phantom of Manhattan par Frederick Forsyth

All of the Leroux-bashing:

In the Preface, Forsyth repeatedly points out errors in Leroux’s novel, most of which are trivial and pointless (OMG! He a dit the chandelier was heavier than it really was! Shun Leroux!). And he keeps pointing out how Andrew Lloyd Webber “fixed” the errors, which brings me to…


Treating Andrew Lloyd Webber’s version like its perfect and the only “right” one:

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage montrer isn’t perfect. That being said, some parts of it were better in his version than in Leroux’s,...

toi Know You’re Addicted To The Phantom Of The Opera When…

DISCLAIMER: I wrote some of these, but the majority of them were written par the folks at phantomoftheopera.com. link.


…When every single story your teacher asks toi to write turns into a Phantom fic.

…When even your friends' Friends know about your obsession and warn THEIR Friends not to ask if Phantom's a musical ou an opera.

…When toi print out drawings of Leroux Erik par yourself and some of your favori artists on DA, cut them out so toi get a paper doll, and put them in a book, and carry them everywhere toi go, and toi speak...
