Phantom or real Emotions?

The Phantom is changed when he finds love.

“Did I not instruct that Box 5 was to be left empty?” ~ The Phantom of the Opera

“Softly, deftly, music shall surround you

Feel it, hear it closing in around you

Open up your mind, let your fantasies unwind……” ~ The Music of the Night (verse 4)

Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “The Phantom of the Opera.”

Gaston Leroux/author of the novel, “The Phantom of the Opera.”

It’s important to know that the Opera House was built over a lake (converted to a cistern) and that’s where the Phantom takes Christine (his lair). That “lake” has a use (serves as a water reservoir) for fire fighters in Paris.

Architect of the Palais Garnier……..Charles Garnier

Located in Arrondissement 9

Sometimes we must be poisoned by emotion to write well.
