An overblown, overhyped, overscored musical adaptation of Gaston Leroux' 1911 novel. Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, who has ripped his tunes and style from Puccini and then beat them into the ground with an enormous sledgehammer.
Reduces the original novel, a satirical Gothic pastiche, to a simplified would-be meaningful, actually-is crap melodrama.
Includes such pathetic lyrics as rhyming "succumb to me" with "succumb to me," completely eviscerates the character of Raoul, and makes the 19th-century operatic genius the Phantom sound like a 1980s rock star.
I'm sorry I wasted $50 on a ticket to 'The Phantom of the Opera.' I thought it was a stage adaptation of the excellent 1925 silent Lon Cheney movie.
It is 1911 and the contents of the Paris Opera House are being auctioned off. Present are the auctioneer, porters and bidders. Raoul, now seventy years old and in a wheelchair, buys a poster and a music box. As the auctioneer displays the Opera House chandelier, he explains that it is connected with the legend of The Phantom of the Opera. With a flash of light, the audience is flung back in time, when the Paris Opera was at its height.
We are thrust in the middle of a rehearsal for the opera Hannibal. Monsieur Lefèvre, the retiring manager of the Opera, is showing the new managers, Monsieurs Firmin and André, the great stage. As the prima donna, Carlotta, is singing, a backdrop falls to the floor, nearly killing her. The cry is raised, "It's The Phantom of the Opera!" Upset, Carlotta refuses to sing.
Meg Giry, daughter of the ballet mistress, Madame Giry, suggests her friend, Christine Daaé, take Carlotta's place. Christine has been taking lessons from a mysterious new teacher.
At her triumph in the Opera, is Raoul, a nobleman and patron of the Opera. Raoul recognizes Christine as a childhood friend. He comes backstage after the performance to escort her to dinner, but Christine tells him she cannot go, because her teacher, "The Angel of Music," is very strict.
When Raoul leaves Christine's room, the Phantom appears. Christine is lured into the bowels of the Opera House, where the Phantom will continue her lessons.
He leads her to hi...
A novel written in 1911 by Gaston Leroux, not in the mid 1980s by Andrew Lloyd Webber.
"I love the Phantom of the Opera 2004 movie based off of Andrew Lloyd Webber's story."
"You crazy phangirl, the Phantom of the Opera was written like 100 years ago!!"
A most outstanding facial ejaculation that is sufficiently voluminous to cover at least one third of the recipient's face.
I juiced all day and busta fatass nut, The bitch had a fish eye, pearl necklass, a Verizon and an angry conductor...it was a total Phantom of the Opera!

Gerard Butler is AMAZING in Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera!
The act of blowing your manly load upon approximately one half of your partner's face in such a way that they appear to be wearing a Phantom of the Opera mask.
Brad thought it would be classy if he gave the chick he brought home that night the old Phantom of the Opera, so just before he blew his wad he covered half of her face with a blanket. She was duly impressed at his ingenuity.
Infront of a window, the male is performing doggy-style on the girl. The fellow then slows down, slow enough so his buddy can switch places with him. Man #1 then runs outside around to the window and waves are her.
Ant: Man i love pulling the phantom of the opera one girls!
Andrew: I like when dudes pull it on me!
When you cum on half of a girl's face and let it run down her face so she looks like a organ playing freak.
Last night after sex I turned my girl's face to the side while she was sleeping and gave her a Phantom of the Opera
