PHANTOM'S VOICE

Bravi, bravi, bravissimi . . .

(CHRISTINE is bewildered by the voice. MEG, following, has not heard it. CHRISTINE turns in surprise, and is relieved to see her)

MEG

Where in the world
have you been hiding?
Really, you were perfect!

I only wish
I knew your secret!
Who is this new tutor?

CHRISTINE (abstracted, entering the dressing room)

Father once spoke of an angel . . .
I used to dream he'd appear . . .

Now as I sing, I can sense him . . .
And I know he's here . . .
(trance-like)

Here in this room
he calls me softly . . .
somewhere inside hiding . . .

Somehow I know
he's always with me . . .
he - the unseen genius . . .

MEG (uneasily)

Christine, you must have
been dreaming . . .
stories like this can't come true . . .

Christine, you're talking in riddles . . .
and it's not like you . . .

CHRISTINE (not hearing her, ecstatic)

Angel of Music!
Guide and guardian!
Grant to me your glory!

MEG (to herself)

Who is this angel? This . . .

BOTH

Angel of Music!
Hide no longer!
Secret and strange angel . . .

CHRISTINE (darkly)

He's with me, even now . . .

MEG (bewildered)

Your hands are cold . . .

CHRISTINE

All around me . . .

MEG

Your face, Christine, it's white . . .

CHRISTINE

It frightens me . . .

MEG

Don't be frightened . . .
