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.

You're rich enough.

Same soup night after

night, week after week.

Oh, please don't

disturb yourself, Marie.

You're a fine one

to say that.

Why wouldn't I

be disturbed?

I'll come right to the

point, Monsieur Claudio.

What you do with your money

is none of my business.

If you want to hoard it and starve

to death, that's your affair.

But you haven't paid

me a sou for six weeks,

and that's as long

as I'm going to wait.

Marie, I haven't

any money. Not now.

If you'll be patient

just a little longer...

You haven't any money!

After working for the Paris

Opera all these years?

What do you expect to do with your money?

Bury it with you?

If you do, they'll dig

you up and steal it.

If you think

you're going to add

a few francs to your

fortune at my expense,

you're very much


Marie, you've been very kind.

You've been very patient.

You'll be paid,

I promise you!

Now, please

leave me alone.

It makes me sick to think of all

that money doing nobody any good.

Either I get my money,

or out you go!

That's my last word,


You are late, Monsieur Claudio.

The lesson is almost over.

I didn't come about that

today, mademoiselle.

She's not in voice today.

I'll tell Signor Ferretti...

Oh, please don't

interrupt the lesson.

Of course not.

I understand.

But I must announce the

time to Signor Ferretti

or he'll keep his

students for hours.

It's 11:

Signor Ferretti.

Thank you.

Mademoiselle, you

disappoint me this morning.

I'm sorry.

I'm a little upset.

If some man is upsetting you,

pitch him out of your life.

Music is first.

Music is everything.

I understand.

You don't understand.

Women never understand.

But they are docile.

Perhaps you're not

getting enough sleep.

Come later tomorrow,

say midday.
