Monsieur Andre!
Monsieur Firmin!
Dear Andre, what a splendid party
The prelude to a bright new year
Quite a night, I’m impressed
Well, one does one’s best
Here’s to us
A toast for the city!
What a pity that the Phantom can’t be here!
Masquerade! /Paper faces on parade/Masquerade! /Hide your face so the world
will never find you/Masquerade! /Every face a different shade/Masquerade!
/Look around, there’s another mask behind you.
Flash of mauve/Splash of puce/Fool and king/Ghoul and goose/Green and
black/Queen and priest/Trace of rouge/Face of beast/Faces!/Take your turn,
take a ride/On the merry-go-round/in an inhuman race/Eye of gold/True is
false/Who is who?/Curl of lip/Swirl of gown/Ace of hearts/Face of clown/Faces!
/Drink it in, drink it up/Till you’ve drowned/In the light/In the sound/But who
can name the face?
Masquerade! /Grinning yellows, spinning reds/Masquerade! /Take your fill,
let the spectacle astound you/Masquerade! /Burning glances, turning
heads/Masquerade!/Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around you/Masquerade!
/Seething shadows breathing lies/Masquerade!/You can fool any friend who ever
knew you/Masquerade!/Leering satyrs, peering eyes/Masquerade!/Run and hide,
but a face will still pursue you.
What a night!
What a crowd!
Makes you glad
Makes you proud! All the crème, De la crème
Watching us.
Watching them
All our fears are in the past
Three months
Of relief!
Of delight!
Of Elysian peace!
And we can breathe at last.
No more notes
No more ghost
Here’s a health
Here’s a toast, to a prosperous year
To the new chandelier
And may the splendor never fade!
What a blessed release!
And what a masquerade!
Think of it. A secret engagement. Look, your future bride. Just think of it.
But, why a secret? What have we to hide?
No, Raoul, please don’t let them see
Well let them see. It’s an engagement, not a crime.
Christine, what are you afraid of?
Let’s not argue (Let's not argue)/Please pretend (I can only hope)/You will
understand in time (I'll understand in time)
Masquerade!/Paper faces on parade/Masquerade!/Hide your face so the world will
never find you/Masquerade!/Every face a different shade/Masquerade!
/Look around, there’s another mask behind you/Masquerade!/Burning glances,
turning heads/Masquerade!/Stop and stare at the sea of smiles around
you/Masquerade!/Grinning yellows, Spinning reds/Masquerade!/Take your fill,
let the spectacle astound you.
Why so silent, great Messieurs?/Did you think that I had left you for good?
/Have you missed me, good Messieurs?/I have written you an opera.
/Here, I bring the finished score./Don Juan Triumphant!/Fondest greetings to
you all/A few instructions just before rehearsal starts/Carlotta must be taught
to act/Not her normal trick of strutting round the stage/Our Don Juan must lose
some weight/It's not healthy in a man of Piangi’s age/And my managers must
learn that their place is in an office/Not the arts/As for our star,
Miss Christine Daae…
No doubt she’ll do her best/It's true, her voice is good/She knows,
though/Should she wish to excell/She has much still to learn/If pride will let
her return to me, her teacher/Her teacher.
Your chains are still mine,
You belong to me!
