There are various interpretations of why the old Raoul brings the monkey সঙ্গীত 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 সঙ্গীত 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...
There needs to be moar stage Phantom 'round here. Therefore I shall now spam ya'll with a selection of stage চলচ্ছবি with various casts. Enjoy the glut of hawt, psychotic, adorable, and generally NOT GERIK Phantoms.

No one wanted a sequel, <-- (generally speaking), it was still made, the critiques hate it, the অনুরাগী 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? অথবা 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...
