Phantom of the Opera 2004 Movie

Phantom of the Opera 2004 MovieThe Story (movie version) 電影版故事內容 :

His voice calls to her, nurturing her extraordinary talents from the shadows of the opera house where innocent chorus girl Christine Daae (EMMY ROSSUM) makes her home. Only ballet mistress Madame Giry (MIRANDA RICHARDSON) knows that Christine’s mysterious “Angel of Music” is actually the Phantom (GERARD BUTLER), a disfigured musical genius who haunts the catacombs of the theatre, terrifying the ensemble of artists who live and work there.

When temperamental diva La Carlotta (MINNIE DRIVER) walks out in the middle of a dress rehearsal for the company’s latest production, the theatre’s eager new managers (SIMON CALLOW and CIARAN HINDS) have no choice but to thrust Christine into the spotlight.

Her mesmerizing opening night performance captivates both the audience and the Phantom, who devotes himself to casting his protégé as the opera’s next star. But he is not the only powerful man to be awed by the young soprano, as Christine soon finds herself courted by the theatre’s wealthy patron, the Vicompte Raoul de Chagny (PATRICK WILSON).

Though she is enthralled by her charismatic mentor, Christine is undeniably drawn to the dashing Raoul, enraging the Phantom and setting the stage for a dramatic crescendo in which soaring passions, fierce jealousies and obsessive love threaten to drive the fated lovers past the point of no return.

【簡介】
本片描述十九世紀發生在法國巴黎歌劇院的愛情故事。時值1870年,在歌劇院的地窖深處,傳說住著一名相貌醜陋、戴著面具、卻學識淵博的音樂天才,多年來他神出鬼沒,躲避世人驚懼鄙夷的目光,被眾人稱之為”魅影”(傑拉德·巴特勒飾)。他動輒以鬼魅之姿製造各種紛亂,趕走他討厭的歌手,甚至還干涉歌劇院的主角人選和劇碼安排。
在無意間,魅影發現芭蕾舞員克莉絲汀(艾米·羅森飾)擁有不凡的天賦美聲,讓他傾慕不已。激賞之餘,魅影決定不計一切代價,將年輕貌美的克莉絲汀調教成首席女高音。然而,最初發自於精神層面的音樂之愛,卻逐漸轉化成為強烈的占有欲。走火入魔的魅影更以實際行動,把所有妨礙克莉絲汀歌唱事業的人一一除掉。
後來,戲院的投資人勞爾(帕特裡克·威爾森飾)認出克莉絲汀是他的兒時玩伴,兩人墜入愛河。魅影發現後,自覺遭到背叛,怒而砍斷舞台大吊燈的鐵鏈,讓整座華麗的水晶燈砰然粉碎在觀眾席上。隨著魅影的破壞愈來愈血腥瘋狂,克莉絲汀對他的感情也逐漸從迷戀轉為恐懼、害怕和憐憫。
半年後,勞爾跟克莉絲汀秘密訂婚,魅影突然現身於歌劇院的化裝舞會,強迫歌劇院演出他親手譜作的歌劇《唐璜》,並指名由克莉絲汀擔任女主角。心煩意亂的克莉絲汀,半夜奔至父親墳前哭訴,勞爾則誓言要與魅影周旋到底。
在《唐璜》首演當日,歌劇院四周布滿警察,孰料魅影竟然殺死男主角,親身改扮上場,與克莉絲汀演對手戲。在戲演到最高潮時,克莉絲汀當眾扯下他的面具,魅影羞愧心碎之際,動手將克莉絲汀擄至他的地下密室。勞爾追蹤至地下,和魅影展開對決,卻被他用繩索勒住,魅影借此要脅克莉絲汀答應求婚。
為了保護愛人勞爾,克莉絲汀毅然傾身,狠狠吻著魅影那張仿佛被地獄詛咒的臉。至此,這場愛情的勝負已定。絕望的魅影送走緊緊相擁的這對戀人,在警察和群眾闖入地下密室前,悄然隱去,只留下一張似笑非笑的凄涼面具……

Starring by Ramin Karimloo as Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine.

Plus, Ramin is the only actor who has played all three of Christine’s loves – Raoul, The Phantom (on stage) and Christine’s father (in the 2004 Joel Schumacher film adaptation); while Sierra is Ariel in The Little Mermaid on Broadway.

Hey~!
I think Ramin should better be Raoul!
The voice of Phantom should be more powerful !
( I don’t mean it’s not powerful at all, but it sounds a bit gentle.)

Plus again.
Sierra’s Ariel ! (Tooooooooooooooooooo lovely!)

It finally comes!!!

GLOBAL LAUNCH FOR ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER’S LONG-AWAITED NEW PRODUCTION

Today, Thursday 8 October, Andrew Lloyd Webber unveils his brand new production “LOVE NEVER DIES” at a global launch in London. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s long awaited new show will have its World Premiere in London at the Adelphi Theatre on Tuesday 9 March 2010 followed by New York on Thursday 11 November and in Australia in 2011.

“LOVE NEVER DIES” continues the story of ‘The Phantom’, who has moved from his lair in the Paris Opera House to haunt the fairgrounds of Coney Island, far across the Atlantic. Set 10 years after the mysterious disappearance of ‘The Phantom’ from Paris, this show is a rollercoaster ride of obsession and intrigue…in which music and memory can play cruel tricks…and ‘The Phantom’ sets out to prove that, indeed, “LOVE NEVER DIES”.

“The Phantom of the Opera”, based on the French novel by Gaston Leroux, has proved a huge success the world over and has been seen by over 100 million people, making it the single most successful entertainment entity in history. The show has been translated into 15 languages and appeared in over 25 different countries including China, Brazil, Poland and Korea. “The Phantom of the Opera” opened at Her Majesty’s Theatre in London on 9 October 1986 starring Sarah Brightman and Michael Crawford and celebrates its 23rd London birthday tomorrow on 9 October. “The Phantom of the Opera” won a staggering 50 awards worldwide, whilst global album sales currently stand at over 40 million copies.

Memory (from Cats by Andrew Lloyd Webber)

Midnight
Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory
She is smiling alone
In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can dream of the old days
Life was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every street lamp seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters and the street lamp sputters
Soon it will be morning

Daylight
I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life and
I mustn’t give in
When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale court smell of morning
A street lamp dies
Another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me,
It is so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun
If you’ll touch me,
You’ll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun…

CHRISTINE

You were once my one companion …
you were all that mattered …
You were once a friend and father –
then my world was shattered …

Wishing you were somehow here again …

Wishing you were somehow near …
Sometimes it seemed,
if I just dreamed,
somehow you would be here …

Wishing I could hear your voice again …
knowing that I never would …
Dreaming of you
won’t help me to do
all that you dreamed I could …

Passing bells
and sculpted angels,
cold and monimental,
seem, for you, the wrong companions –
you were warm and gentle …

Too many years
fighting back tears …
Why can’t the past just die …?

Wishing you were somehow here again …
knowing we must say goodbye …
Try to forgive …
teach me to live …
give me the strength to try …

No more memories, no more silent tears …
No more gazing across the wasted years …
Help me say goodbye.
Help me say goodbye~

A Whole New World – Brad Kane/Lea Salonga

A Whole New World – Peabo Bryson/Regina Belle

I can show you the world
Shining, Shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide

I can open your eyes
Take you wonder by wonder
Over, sideways and under
On a magic carpet ride
A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world
A Dazzling place I never knew
But when I’m way up there
It’s crystal clear
That now I’m in a whole new world with you

Unbelievable sights
Indescribable feeling
Soaring, tumbling, freewheeling
Through an endless diamond sky
A whole new world
Don’t you dare close your eyes
A hundred thousand things to see
Hold your hreath – it gets better
I’m like a shooting star I’ve come so far
I can’t go back to where I used to be
A whole new world
With new horizons to pursue
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you

A whole new world
A new fantastic point of view
No one to tell us no or where to go
Or say we’re only dreaming
A whole new world
(Every turn a surprise)
With new horizons to pursue
(Every momment red-letter)
I’ll chase them anywhere
There’s time to spare anywhere
There’s time to spare
Let me share this whole new world with you
A whole new world
That’s where we’ll be
A thrilling chase
A wondrous place
For you and me
