Bravisimo! A marvelous movie version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical masterpiece! Such a magnificent and passionate spectacle with amazing music, terrific acting and the sets were spectacular. I really felt Gerard Butler handled the role of the Phantom which would make Leroux proud. I loved all the songs, my favorite being All I ask of You! Minnie Driver provides a degree of comedic wit to her Madame Carlotta, although was disappointed to know she lipsynced. An excellent co collaberation from Lloyd Webber and Director Joel Schumacher. See this one when you can.

Lush and melodramatic, like any opera. Good staging of the piece.

Loved actors and actresses, the sing was beautiful, the phantom did a very could job of being creepy. However, I did not enjoy the words to "The Point of No Return," and did not enjoy when a guy pulled down his pants. But for the most part, I enjoyed it. My favorite song is "All I ask of you". It was a novelty when anyone actually spoke rather then sing! Once, when Christine SAID something, my sister said, "She speaks!"

It is now 1881.[35] As Carlotta, the Opéra's resident soprano prima donna, rehearses for that evening's performance, a backdrop collapses without warning. "The Phantom! He's here!" the anxious cast members whisper. The Opera's new owners, Firmin and André, try to downplay the incident, but Carlotta refuses to continue and storms offstage. Madame Giry, the Opéra's ballet mistress, tells Firmin and André that Christine Daaé, a Swedish chorus girl and orphaned daughter of a prominent violinist, has been "well taught", and could sing Carlotta's role. With cancellation of the performance their only alternative, the owners reluctantly audition Christine, and to their surprise she is equal to the challenge. ("Think of Me")
