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...

 Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
Illustration from Kay novel. He certainly looks depressed.
This প্রবন্ধ 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 দ্বারা 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. আপনি don't have to like it অথবা agree with it.
I shall begin with Leroux since that is the original perception of...

শীর্ষ 10 reasons for why Erik/Christine doesn’t work.

Yes, I know I was supposed to প্রকাশ my প্রণয় 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...

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 দ্বারা 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...

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....

Carlotta is writen as a horrid character. She tells rumors and plans schemes to eliminate christine as her competition. I think what is often overlooked is that Carlotta is one of the so many victims of the book. From what is written আপনি can tell that Carlotta was extremely talented as an opera singer as the book mentions how perfect an instrument her voice was. She had the misfortune to be ill and be replaced দ্বারা someone far আরো loved and adored than herself, that in itself is enough to make anyone mad, take a দিন of sick and your job isnt waiting for আপনি when আপনি get back. Not only was she...

What Annoys Me About The Phantom of Manhattan দ্বারা 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 ব্যক্ত 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 প্রদর্শনী isn’t perfect. That being said, some parts of it were better in his version than in Leroux’s,...

Well firstly, I'd like to say that I watched the Australian Cast Recording (not being lucky enough to see it in life) and the staging/costumes/set were superb! Really, in some scenes I felt as if I were looking at a real bar/circus/etc that one might go into on a weekend quite casually.
The গান গাওয়া was equally wonderful from most parties - I particularly enjoyed Ben Lewis as the Phantom, the অভিনয় mostly on the same level. However, I much prefer the songs of the original Phantom of the Opera.
And now for the plot. Christine, now married to the suddenly তিক্ত Raoul, and with a musically talented...

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...

I originally পোষ্ট হয়েছে this on IMDB's board as VampireOutlaw.

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...

the phantom has Raoul against the gate, it's christen's decision. she doesn't answer soon enough, and the phantom eliminates the other choice. oddly, christen is drawn to the phantom, hypnotized দ্বারা his mind games. আপনি see, he didn't kill raoul, he just made him dissapear. christen finally decides, wherever raoul may be, she didn't care at all. she decided that she loved the phantom. together, they made many operas, reopened the opera house, and they grew old and died together. but, it is ব্যক্ত that if আপনি listen carefully at the now closed down house, আপনি can still hear the duet of christen and the phantom, for their work was never finished, now they wait for it to be done.
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 অ্যাঞ্জেল of সঙ্গীত 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,...

Paris, 1890, nine years after the events of 'The Phantom of the Opera'. Nine years in which all thoughts of Erik, the অ্যাঞ্জেল who'd once haunted her দিন and night had been cast aside, discarded like a broken doll. Nine years in which poor, sixteen বছর old Christine had grown up, grown up into a women of high reputation, with a handsome young husband and prospects of a child.

So much can change in nine years.

Yet it only takes a little to be hurled back into the past.

Chapter One :

Paris is host to a number of fine hospitals, all which produce many a fine baby from many a fine mother. It is a particular...

Hi guys, since I had only done the stage review, here is the movie review that I will write.

The Story

While the story is exactly like the stage version, some songs were revise for logical reasons. A couple of them were shortened to avoid repetition, the ending with the elderly Raoul was added that is not feature in the stage version.

Music of the Night

As mentioned, many familiar songs are feature and are shortened. Originally, the Phantom (Erik in the original novel) has a new song which was written specially for this film. But it was omitted due to time constrain, it is feature on the Special Edition DVD.

The Characters

While watching this film, I keep thinking that this film is like Disney's Beauty and the Beast, with the exception of the ending which both the antagonist and protagonist did not die.

In All Your Fantasies

So, these are my thoughts on the film and enjoy it.

Tracking Down Different Versions: We had our awesome A/V Club, but that got closed because no one was on it. So…you pretty much brought it on yourself. Anyway, believe it অথবা not, the 1925, 1962, and 1990 চলচ্চিত্র are available on YouTube: link, link, and link. Also Leroux is online; I already পোষ্ট হয়েছে the link. Look, that’s 4 versions online for FREE! Also, some of the আরো common versions aren’t that hard to track down if আপনি know where to look. I got the 1943 version for $2.99 at Fleet Farm. And those things called...

The Haunted Mansion ride at ডিজনি has always been one of my favourite things, and Phantom tops the তালিকা at #1 fave thing. And a while back I started noticing really heavy similarities between the two things and I found many of them interesting. I thought I would share these observations here, so that others might enjoy the coincidences, অথবা homages if you'd care to take it that way.

We will begin in the Foyer. Above the fireplace hangs a portrait where a young gentleman (presumably Master Gracey) hangs. It is here that the unseen guide for the attraction first makes his presence known.

I saw The Phantom of the Opera when I was 12, and I heard the Original লন্ডন Cast Recording of প্রণয় Never Dies when I was 16. দ্বারা 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 অথবা 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. :(!
