What can you personalize in The Phantom of the Opera?
Christine Daaé - Our heroine is a beautiful aspiring young opera singer and dancer at the Paris Opera. Her innocence makes her an easy target for the Phantom's manipulative affections--and his jealousy when she falls in love with her childhood friend.
Erik (The Phantom) - Erik is the disfigured musical genius who hides beneath the opera house and haunts its inhabitants. His love for Christine varies between tenderness and obsession, and eventually leads to rage, jealousy... and murder.
Raoul de Chagny - Handsome young nobleman Raoul is in love with his childhood sweetheart, Christine. He mistrusts her so-called "Angel of Music" and vows to save Christine from his rival's clutches.
"The Persian" - This mysterious Persian has a long history with the Phantom, having saved Erik's life, and now keeps track of him at the Opera. He bravely helps Raoul face the Phantom's cruel traps.
Madame Giry - Mme. Giry is the Opera's conceirge and one of the only people trusted by the Phantom. She collects the money he extorts from the Opera's managers, and believes his prediction that her daughter will marry into royalty.
Meg Giry - The young daughter of Mme. Giry, Meg is somewhat self-absorbed and egotistical. She is shocked and made envious by Christine's quick rise to success. (Note: unlike the musical version, Meg is not Christine's best friend.)
Carlotta - This elegant Spanish diva foolishly ignores the Phantom's warnings to back out of her lead role in the Opera's new production... and pays the price for her refusal to let Christine have the part.
