Best. Kiss. Evar.

"Phantom of the Opera" goes waaaaay back to my childhood. My mother always had the soundtrack playing, like several times a week while I was growing up. (Michael Crawford was the first Phantom I ever heard sing, he'll always be my favorite). When I was around 12, Mom took me and my sister to go see Phantom at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. I've loved it ever since. I saw it once more in Las Vegas, and just recently I took my mom and sister to see it again at the Pantages for its "farewell" tour. This kiss makes me cry every time. :XD:

It's hard to find video footage of Crawford and Brightman, but after digging around on youtube I found some other good performances, www.youtube.com/watch?v=4rVXio… being one of them. The good part starts around 7:38 and hot damn is that a good kiss. :P

I'm a loooong-time fan too, and this is beautiful. If you have not read a book called "Phantom" by Susan Kay, I highly recommend it. :D

Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece! I too have loved The Phantom of The Opera since I was a child of 2 years, my mother would play the original stage cast recording for us over and over again (Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman are the most wonderfully paired voices ever!), and the magic of it has never been lost to me. This piece just makes my heart sing as I fall in love yet again:rose:

I first watched Phantom when I was around 5 or so. It will always be my favorite musical and this is such an amazing fanart
I wish I could have watched to broadway production when I was older and could appreciate it more, but no, my dad was rash and took me when I was 10 and younger

I used to but now that I'm older and wiser, I've come to see that you'd have to be a complete idiot to choose Erik. His actions speak much louder than his face does. He's still my favorite but I wouldn't choose him. Still, in the realms of fantasy, Love Redeems.

....

So long as we don't talk about that travesty of a sequel.

"Waaaaay back to [your] childhood" Brianna? 
It goes back a little further than you think. The story was first adapted to the screen in 1925, in a silent B&W movie of the same name. It is remarkably good, I was pleasantly surprised. 
Of course, it wasn't until the advent of Andrew Lloyd Webber that it received its brilliant musical score, with opposing characters stealing each other's themes in a cacophony that would stir Tchaikovsky or Verdi from their rest.

The movie with Gerard Butler and Emmy Rossum on DVD has four great promo tracks, one of which is Michael Crawford's "Music of the Night." Check it out!

well she remembers it from her childhood, not "further back". as she stated her mom would listen to the soundtrack and she loved the movie, it may be older but it was still a part of her childhood

Sorry if I misinterpreted your comment as an attack on her saying she remembers it from her childhood. The first sentence sounds like youre trying to prove her wrong or something, so I just came to even it out.

Oh no, I would never attack a fellow Phantom lover (except in role-play, Christine. Psychotic )

Nope. Stand and be corrected.

I clicked on the thumbnail because I recognised the scene. This is a faithful rendition of the scene, and especially of the Phantom's make-up, as appears on the Blu-ray disc of the 25 Years Celebration performance in the Royal Albert Hall. Said disc is on the desk in front of me right now.
Perhaps you haven't seen it. Perhaps you don't understand that Christine removed his mask (er, masque.)
Or perhaps you're unaware how much effort was expended to make him look so grotesque.

Brianna has captured this quite well.

Really your a professional artist? maybe you should behave like one. maybe you should remove YOURSELF from this site until your mama can teach you some manners you little troll. seriously no words can describe your failure at as a decent human being. i hope your ashamed of yourself that you've allowed your self to behave in such a manner.

I haven't seen too many musicals since I'm more of an orchestra person, but Phantom of the Opera is my favorite musical!

This is such a wonderful illustration. The colors and emotions are strong. Well done!
