Phantom of the Opera

Synopsis: Pit violinist Claudin hopelessly loves rising operatic soprano Christine Dubois (as do baritone Anatole and police inspector Raoul) and secretly aids her career. But Claudin loses both his touch and his job, murders a rascally music publisher in a fit of madness, and has his face etched with acid. Soon, mysterious crimes plague the Paris Opera House, blamed on a legendary "phantom" whom none can find in the mazes and catacombs. But both of Christine's lovers have plans to ferret him out.

everything connected with

the Opera is so

much a part of my life.

Of course. But Monsieur

Villeneuve is waiting.


You weren't ill, were you?

You're not in any trouble?

Oh, it's impertinent

of me, I know, but, uh...

You're very kind.

Good night.



I'm sorry.

I'm sorry.

Good night.

Good night.

Come in, please.

You know why I

sent for you, Claudio.

I think so, Maestro.

For some time now, I have sensed

discord in the violin section.

It was not until tonight that I definitely

located the source of the trouble.

Let me hear you play,

if you please, Claudio.

Yes, Maestro.

What was that,


A little song.

A lullaby.

From Provence,

where I was born.

You played it

very well.

Perhaps I was wrong.

No, it was you.

What could have been

the matter, Claudio?

You're an accomplished


Come, come now.

Let me hear you play the opening

movement in the third act of Marta.

It's no use, Maestro.

Something has happened to the

fingers of my left hand.

But you played that

lullaby perfectly.

It's a simple melody,


That's why I played it.

You were trying to

fool me, eh, Claudio?

Well, perhaps it's only temporary.

Perhaps it'll get better.

I hope so,

but in the meantime...

You know, Claudio, the aim of

the Paris Opera is perfection.

I'm sorry, old fellow.

Very sorry.

You've been with us a

long time, haven't you?

Twenty years.

What am I to do,


I know it's hard, Claudio.

No doubt you've saved a tidy

little fortune to retire on.

Yes, of course.

In appreciation of

your long service,

I shall arrange

with the directors

to have a season

ticket issued to you.

Thank you, Maestro.

Why didn't you get yourself

something to eat before the opera

instead of keeping me up all hours?
