Yeston/Kopit’s Musical PHANTOM Korean cast opened!
the new Overture including Ryu Jung han(Phantom)’s solo lines

Recorded in 30/APR/2015 (Please Do not post outside Tumblr!)

Based on Gaston Leroux’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’, this musical had not enough chance to be as famous as Webber’s POTO.

In this Korean production, Phantom’s solo was added at the beginning of Overture. There are several more new songs only for Korean productions as well, so be ready.


operafantomet here are some shots from ‘Phantom’ in Korea - it’s the Yeston&Kopit version, although this wasn’t made so clear in the advertisement!
Few more tracks have been added(Hear My Tragic Tale; What Will I do; I will find you; I saw his face) especially for this production.*

*Update: These tracks were already used in Takarazuka production as well! Thanks for the correction.

Christine and the Phantom (Gounod: "Faust" Vocal Excerpt)

The prison trio (“Alerte! Alerte!”) from Faust as heard in The Phantom of the Opera (1990) with Charles Dance.  While the Faust (Jean Dupouy) and the Mephisto (Jacques Mars) sing their own parts, the parts for the Phantom and Christine (Teri Polo) have been dubbed by opera singers.  The Phantom, who is singing the role of Faust and successfully overpowering the actor on stage, is sung by Gerard Garino, and Christine as Marguerite is sung by Michele Lagrange.

Voices in my night will cry Christine,
and every drop of rain that falls,
will be Christine.

You are the only one,
my only chance of happiness,
my golden leaf of autumn,
my Christine.

Look within this heart of mine, Christine.
The very constant soul and music, of Christine.
Behind this mortal mask,
this terror of a face conceals,
the gesture and the grace of you, Christine.

No one else must ever have Christine,
if not for me you’d be for no one else, Christine.
If I am guilty, I’d be guilty of,
An innocents who’s name is love.

And never, no never will you ever be,
for anyone else and except for me.
I damn you when I love,
and I love you, and I damn you,
My Christine!
