Title :

Before The Performance


Gustave, could you hand me those earrings

The diamond ones on the left?

There, how do I look?

You look so beautiful

So very beautiful

Like a queen in a book

You too are beautiful

So very beautiful

Once this performance is through

We'll spend some time just us two

Won't that be fun?

Father, doesn't mother look lovely tonight?

Indeed she does

As lovely as she looked the very first time

I came to her dressing room door

And look at you, Raoul


You look just like that handsome boy in the opera box

The one who'd always toss me a single red rose

Please, Gustave, if you don't mind

Would you wait outside a while?

May I go exploring, by myself?

Yes, but stay backstage, my dear

When I'm finished, meet me here

I will

Since our wedding day, things have gone astray


I'm not proud of the way that I've acted

We've both been

The demands I've made, all the hopes mislaid

I'm aware of the price they've exacted

Though I've no right to ask you to

There's one thing more I'd have you do

If you love me as I love you

Anything, darling

Don't sing the song, dear


But, Raoul

You have to know

Something's terribly wrong, dear

But I have to do this

It's what we agreed to

That hell-spawn demon

He's had us playing his game all along, dear

Let me just get through this

Listen, please, I need to

You need so much, it's true

And I've denied you

You need the man you knew

Back here beside you

You'll have him back, I vow

Just ask it of me

But we must leave here now

If you still love me

Do you mean it, Raoul, truly?

I've booked a passage for three

To Cherbourg on the Atlantic Queen, it leaves in an hour

We'll have just enough time, I beg you

Let's be on it for both our sakes

And the child's

Leave this place behind

He knows his love is not enough

He knows he isn't what you need

He knows you're made of finer stuff

I think on that we're all agreed

It's time to leave him in the dust

It's time to be who you should be

It's time to do now as you must

And set the music in you free

In moments, mere moments

Drums will roll

There you'll stand just like before

The crowd will hush

And then in one sweet rush

I will hear you sing once more

And music, our music

Will swell and then unwind

Like two strands of melody at last entwined

Fulfill us, complete us

Make us whole

Seal our bond forever more

Tonight, for me

Embrace your destiny

Let me here you sing once more

Miss Daaé, it's time

Twisted every way

What answer can I give?

I know I can't refuse

And yet I wish I could

Oh, God

Christine, Christine

Don't think that I don't care

But every hope and every prayer

Rests on you now
