CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM)

CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM)

I cannot sing it,

Duty or not!

RAOUL(comforting)

Christine…

Christine…

You don't have to…

They can't make you…

(MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM)

GIRY

Please, monsieur:

Another note.

(The MANAGERS gesture: "read it". As she reads, ALL react variously, as they are singled out)

GIRY

"Fondest greetings to you all!

A few instructions, just before

Rehearsal starts:

Carlotta must be taught to act…,"

(The PHANTOM's voice gradually takes over from her)

PHANTOM'S VOICE

… not her normal trick

Of strutting round the stage.

Our Don Juan must

Lose some weight –

It's not healthy in

A man CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM) of Piangi's age.

And my managers must learn

That their place is in

An office, not the arts.

As for Miss Christine Daae…

No doubt she'll do her best –

It's true her voice is good. She knows,

Though, should she wish to excel,

She has much still to learn,

If pride will let her return

To me, her teacher,

Her teacher…

Your obedient friend…

АНДРЕ

Но, как же?

ПИАНДЖИ(сбитый с толку, КАРЛОТТЕ)

О чем она?

ФЕРМЕ(резонно)

Раз вы решили…

(неожиданно обрушивается на нее)

Но, как же!

КАРЛОТТА(ПИАНДЖИ)

Наша взяла!

АНДРЕ

Ведь вы актриса!

КРИСТИН

И мне решать CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM),

Играть или нет!

РАУЛЬ(успокаивая)

Кристин…

Кристин…

Тебе играть –

Тебе решать…

(Входят МЭГ и ЖИРИ, в руках у последней еще одно послание ПРИЗРАКА)

ЖИРИ

Вот, месье:

Еще письмо.

(Жест ДИРЕКТОРОВ: "читайте". Когда она читает, каждый реагирует по-своему, при упоминании его имени)

ЖИРИ

"Глубочайший всем поклон!

Несколько слов, пред тем, как

К делу приступить:

Карлотте предстоит забыть…,"

(Ее голос, постепенно, переходит в голос ПРИЗРАКА)

ГОЛОС ПРИЗРАКА

… роль изнеженных

Вниманием принцесс.

Дон Жуан наш

Больно толст,

И Пианджи должен

Срочно сбросить вес.

А моим директорам

Стоит вспомнить,

Что их место – кабинет.

А вот мисс Кристин Даэ…

Бесспорно, ваш успех

В ее руках. А, между тем,

Она еще столь юна,

Ей CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM) поддержка нужна.

Помочь ей рад в том

Всегда ее учитель,

Учитель…

Ваш покорный слуга…

(The PHANTOM's voice fades out and GIRY takes over)

GIRY

"… and Angel…"

(Attention now focuses on RAOUL, whose eyes are suddenly bright with a new thought)

RAUOL

We have all been blind –

And yet the answer is

Staring us in a face…

This could be the chance

To ensnare our clever friend…

ANDRE

We're listening…

FIRMIN

Go on…

RAOUL

We shall play his game –

Perform his work –

But remember we hold the ace…

For if Miss Daae sings,

He is certain to attend…

ANDRE(carried along by the idea)

We make certain the CHRISTINE. (MEG and GIRY arrive, the latter bearing another note from the PHANTOM) doors are barred…

FIRMIN(likewise)

We make certain our men are there…

RAOUL

We make certain they're armed…

RAOUL / ANDRE / FIRMIN(savouring their victory)

The curtain falls –

His reign will end!

(ALL have been listening intently. GIRY is the first to express a reaction. CHRISTINE remains silent and withdrawn)

GIRY

Madness!

ANDRE

I'm not so sure…

FIRMIN

Not if it works…

GIRY

This is madness!

ANDRE

The tide will turn!

GIRY

Monsieur, believe me –
