Once she learns of the phantom's identity by ripping off his mask (one of the truly legendary scenes in horror), Erik agrees to free her for one last performance.
The phantom is also an archetypal ghoul, yet he also carries a Jekyll and Hyde duality because he represents both the passionate and beautiful and horrible and evil in everyone.
He was not, as was long believed, a creature of the imagination of the artists, the superstition of the managers, or a product of the absurd and impressionable brains of the young ladies of the ballet, their mothers, the box-keepers, the cloak-room attendants or the concierge.

 Filmtracks: The Phantom of the Opera (Andrew Lloyd Webber)
In the end, though, casual listeners of The Phantom of the Opera --the kind who pull it off the shelf once every three years (or haven't pulled it at all since the early 1990's) are not likely to notice any earth-shattering differences between the stage and screen renditions.
The most irritating aspect of this version of "The Phantom of the Opera" is its shortened length; a quarter of the song is simply missing (the section that starts with the Phantom: "In all your fantasies...").
Definitely underpowered are the Phantom's attempts to lure Christine in "Wandering Child," with poor vocal chemistry between the two leads and incompatible tones combining with the barely present thumping bass strings to suck all the magic out of the piece.

 SCREEN IT! PARENTAL REVIEW: THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

To Christine, he offers wealth, luxury and opera stardom, and she is in no peril "as long as you do not touch the mask" -- oh, and she must love him, or at least allow him to possess her (although his precise sexual plans are left undefined).
This plan is too optimistic, as the Phantom snatches Christine from her dressing room, and the two are pursued into the bowels of Paris by Raoul and Inspector Ledoux -- and, in a separate pursuit, by the vengeful stagehand Buquet (whose brother the Phantom murdered), leading a mob of torch-carrying rabble.
But the Phantom is invested by the intense and inventive Lon Chaney with a horror and poignancy that is almost entirely created with body language.

This version of The Phantom of the Opera, billed as "Universal's million dollar super jewel production" has frequently been regarded as one of the greatest American horror films of all time, and the very best of the many adaptations of Gaston Leroux's 1911 literary work.

 SPLICEDwire | "The Phantom of the Opera" movie review (2004) "Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera" review, ...
When this pair teamed up to bring Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" to the big screen, it was a match made in hell.
A film of gross overacting and overproduced grandeur, yet one without a scrap of digestible character, "Phantom" opens with young and lovely understudy soprano Christine Daae (Emmy Rossum, "The Day After Tomorrow") already under the spell of an obsessed, half-handsome, half-disfigured psycho who lives underneath the most grandiose opera house in 1889 Paris.
But even if "Phantom of the Opera" weren't a sensory assault of cinematic excess, it would still be missing one of the primary draws of the stage hit: the audience's own role in the production, most notably when the theater's grand chandelier is sent crashing down by the enraged Phantom.

 The Phantom of the Opera mistakes, goofs and bloopers
Deliberate "mistake": As Christine approaches the Phantom in his lair (just after he has abducted her), we see that she is wearing very dark fl eye-shadow.
A while later, when Christine is singing this same song for the owners (to fill in for Carlotta), she begins singing the song in the key of D Major (which is 2 whole musical keys lower) with no prior practice.
It is highly unlikely that the orchestra conductor of the opera knew that Christine needed to sing the song in a lower key.
