A complete guide to all the songs in 'The Phantom of the Opera'
Learn more about the songs in The Phantom of the Opera , including "Masquerade," "All I Ask of You," "The Music of the Night", and "Think of Me."
It’s time to listen to the music of the night – otherwise known as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s soaring score for his all-conquering 1986 musical The Phantom of the Opera . Featuring lyrics by Charles Hart, and a libretto co-written by Lloyd Webber and Richard Stilgoe, it’s an epic adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s novel about a masked genius lurking in the sewers beneath the Paris Opera House in the late 19th century.
That lurker would be the Phantom: the musical mentor of young soprano Christine. She becomes the centre of a passionate love triangle, pursued both by the Phantom and by her childhood friend-turned-wealthy patron, Raoul. The show opened in the West End starring Sarah Brightman, Michael Crawford and Steve Barton, and went on to win Olivier and Tony Awards for Best Musical. Find out more about The Phantom of the Opera in London.
Phantom continues to enchant audiences: it’s the longest-running show in Broadway history, and the second-longest-running musical in the West End following Les Misérables . Part of its appeal is the sheer opulent scale, including that famous chandelier. But key to its success, too, is Lloyd Webber’s mighty operatic score. Follow us down into the Phantom’s lair (via His Majesty's Theatre ) as we guide you through the show’s indelible songs.

“Hannibal Dress Rehearsal”
Phantom has a recurring show-within-a-show element. We open with the fictional cast rehearsing a new production, Hannibal, starring prima donna Carlotta. This scene also packs in some speedy exposition, introducing the audience to the opera house’s new owners, Firmin and Andre, and new patron, the Vicomte de Changy (also known as Raoul) — and also telling us that orphan Christine’s father was a famous violinist. It sets the template for a musical that will constantly whisk between onstage and backstage.
“Think of Me”
Carlotta storms off after a backdrop crashes down from the flies, and Christine takes over her role for that evening’s performance. “Think of Me” is her big aria, but its wistful lyrics also spur Raoul to recognise her as his childhood friend, and to wonder if she too remembers their shared past. It adds emotional heft to — and complicates — Christine’s triumph.
“Angel of Music”
Christine reveals to Meg (daughter of the ballet mistress Madame Giry) that she has a secret tutor, who she calls the Angel of Music. She believes it’s the spirit of her late father — a naïve idea encapsulated by this dreamy little number.
The Angel of Music becomes a point of reconnection for Christine and Raoul when he visits her in her dressing room and asks her out to dinner. Both remember the stories that her father used to tell them, and the song “Little Lotte” that he taught her to sing. He assumes it’s all a fantasy, whereas Christine thinks it’s actually real.
Enter the Phantom — and an angry, jealous Phantom. He’s furious that Raoul is sharing in his triumph, and lures Christine away. She meets his fury with a sweet reprise of “Angel of Music.” Finally, he reveals himself to her in her mirror and takes her away.
“The Phantom of the Opera”
The almighty title number! It’s a key duet between Christine and the Phantom as they explore their dynamic: the Phantom has embedded himself in her psyche, and he takes credit for her glorious voice, while she characterises herself as his mask. The music echoes this tussle: both beautiful and ominous, grand as the Opera House and eerie as the sewers.
“The Music of the Night”
After travelling by boat to his hidden lair, the Phantom reveals that he has selected Christine as his muse — and shows her an image in the mirror where she’s wearing a wedding dress. It’s all too much: Christine faints. That brings out the Phantom’s caring side, as he covers her with his cloak and croons this tender song. Listen to the lyrics and you’ll find a sinister juxtaposition between the seductive music and his intent, which is to seduce her with his genius and trap her in the dark with him.
“I Remember”/ “Stranger Than You Dreamt It”
Christine wakes to hear the monkey music box (the one that Raoul will see at the auction in the show’s prologue). As the Phantom sits at the organ, composing his next opus, Christine creeps up to him and removes his mask – revealing his disfigured face. The Phantom roars at her anger, then this tune softens as he admits he yearns to be loved.
“Notes”/ “Prima Donna”
Andre, Firmin and Raoul are all fretting about the mysterious disappearance of their sopranos. But the Phantom has written a series of notes, demanding Christine become the star of his new opera, not Carlotta. The owners appease a furious Carlotta, assuring her that she won’t be replaced. It’s a busy number with lots of cross-currents (and a fun piece of epistolary farce) – a nice contrast to the serious songs we’ve just heard in the sewers.
“Why Have You Brought Me Here?”
After the Phantom sabotaged the performance by reducing Carlotta’s voice to a croak, Christine drags Raoul to the rooftop and confesses all about the Phantom and his dangerous obsession with her. Raoul still thinks it was just a dream.
“All I Ask of You”
Now Raoul gets his big moment – and it’s the polar opposite to the Phantom’s “Music of the Night”. He says that daylight (not the darkness) will dry her tears, and that he will be her shelter and her light. Instead of wanting to control her, he simply asks to be a part of her life. That sentiment is matched by a sweet, gentle, sincere tune – and when Christine matches it, their romance takes flight.
“All I Ask of You (Reprise)”
Uhoh. The Phantom was spying on them and he now uses their love song with which to swear revenge. Watch out for Act Two...
“Masquerade”/ “Why So Silent?”
Phantom ’s second half opens six months later, and in grand style: with a masquerade ball. Masks are being used playfully (as exemplified by the jaunty patter sections with swift, teasing lyrics), and the general tone is jubilant: Christine and Raoul are engaged, and all is well. At least, until the Phantom gate-crashes the party. He has a new opera for them, but demands Christine star – and return to him.
“Notes”/ “Twisted Every Way”
Another knotty plotting number, but the tone is now sombre. Christine is scared that she’s become the Phantom’s prey, and Raoul entreats her to use the opera to trap the Phantom. Will she betray her mentor?
“Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again”
Her loyalties divided, Christine visits her father’s grave. After the frantic opening action, it’s a slow, shimmering number that shifts between warmth and aching melancholy. It’s also an important part of Christine reckoning with the past: in one way or another, she’s been haunted throughout the show, and (in the song’s big climax) now needs to find the strength to fight for her future.
The Phantom isn’t going away just yet. He appears to Christine in the cemetery, once again seducing her with the power of his voice and “Angel of Music” genius – until Raoul breaks the spell.
“Don Juan Triumphant”/ “The Point of No Return”
That’s the title of the Phantom’s new opera, which we now hear rehearsed by Christine, Carlotta and the chorus. The Phantom gate-crashes once again, taking on the part of Don Juan so he can sing lyrics with a double meaning to Christine: “In your mind you’ve already succumbed to me… no use resisting: abandon thought, and let the dream descend.” But are they really “past the point of no return”?
The Phantom then uses a reprise of “All I Ask of You” to propose to Christine. However, before he can finish, she unmasks him – and they discover the corpse of the actor he murdered. Game over.
“Down Once More”/ “Track Down This Murderer”
As an angry mob vows to hunt down the Phantom, he escapes to his lair with a captive Christine. Raoul follows, and the Phantom threatens to kill him unless Christine stays. Finally, Christine realises the truth: his haunted face holds no horror for her – it’s in his soul “that the true distortion lies”. She decides to show him pity and kindness, and kisses him.
That thaws the Phantom’s heart, and he releases the two of them; they depart with a final reprise of “All I Ask of You,” leaving the Phantom alone with his “Music of the Night.”

Celinde Schoenmaker duets with busker Stephen Barry in Covent Garden London 10 Nov 2016
By Sophia Alexandra Hall
The West End Christine astonished shoppers when she stopped to duet with a local busker...
Listen to this article
In 2016, Irish singer, Stephen Barry, was stood on the end of James Street in Covent Garden London busking to an audience with a microphone and sound system.
He had just finished performing a song from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Phantom of the Opera when he was approached by a woman who asked if he would sing ‘All I Ask of You’, another song from the hit musical.
Barry, who would go on to become a finalist in Ireland’s Got Talent , replied that he couldn’t sing two songs in a row from the same musical.
The woman responded, “If you sing it, I’ll sing with you”. Barry looked sceptical and asked the young woman if she was any good.
To which the woman, Celinde Schoenmaker, responded, “I’m currently playing Christine in the West End production”.

Schoenmaker made her West End debut in 2013 as one of the main characters, Fantine in the musical, Les Misérables .
The Dutch actress and singer joined the cast of Phantom of the Opera in 2015 as Christine, and performed alongside Ben Forster as the Phantom a year later in the show's 30th Anniversary performance.
It was just a few months after this performance that she encountered Barry in the shopping district, just a ten minute walk from Her Majesty’s Theatre, which had staged Phantom, at that time, for the past 30 years.
Barry is noticeably moved by Schoenmaker’s decision to join him in song, and places his hand on his heart during the moving duet. The pair also high-five and share a hug at the end of the performance.

Princess Diana Apparently Did Make a Phantom of the Opera Recording
"All I Ask of You" was one of her favorite songs.
In the fourth season of The Crown , there is a scene where Princess Diana (Emma Corrin) treats her husband, Prince Charles (Josh O'Connor), to an unexpected wedding anniversary present: a video of herself singing "All I Ask of You" from the musical The Phantom of the Opera . The recording is no joke: The princess is dressed in an elaborate Christine Daaé costume on the actual set of the West End production with a full orchestra accompanying her. Diana is proud of the feat, but Charles is not pleased by it.
Sulzberger added that it's unclear exactly what Diana did for her performance; she could have mimed to the song or simply danced to it, as some accounts have suggested. "To minimize the number of witnesses, there is a chance they played a recording," she said.
But a 1988 report in The Washington Post claimed that the recording does indeed include Diana's original vocals.
For this, the seven-year itch anniversary, she presented Prince Charles with a video of her current favorite musical, "The Phantom of the Opera," and in it she sings for him a song from the show, "All I Ask of You." And she did this simply by renting the show's set at the theater in London's West End where it is playing and having her movements directed by the show's choreographer, Gillian Lynne. Diana didn't settle for second best. The show's composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber, was there to oversee her performance.
Webber later denied the claims to The Telegraph . A few of the princess's biographers—Penny Junor, Ingrid Seward, and Simone Simmons—and her former bodyguard were skeptical about the report too.
Still, the official Phantom Twitter account acknowledged the scene on the day Season 4 premiered, sharing a photo of Diana meeting the cast. "'All I Ask of You' was always one of her favourite songs, with her once making a private video on the Phantom's stage. Excited to see this moment in @TheCrownNetflix with the wonderful Emma Corrin," the caption read.
Corrin actually sang "All I Ask of You" during her audition process for the role of Diana, and it was that impromptu performance (over a YouTube karaoke track of the song) that helped her win the producers over, Vulture reported.
For the actual filming process, The Crown got the real West End Phantom set, as well as actors from the stage production and an orchestra. Corrin, a trained singer with a background in theater, worked with a voice coach to develop her version of Diana's singing voice. "I did about two [takes] and I had a complete panic attack, had a nosebleed. I had a proper, like, a proper breakdown," the actress told Vulture. But the cast and crew were very supportive of her.
Unfortunately, Diana's "All I Ask of You" footage is not available to the public, so we'll stick with Corrin's on-screen version for now.
