Musicals – The Phantom Of Opera – Why So Silent? lyrics


I have written you an opera. Did you think that I had left you for good? 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 loose 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… Don Juan Triumphant! Have you missed me, good monsieurs? 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… Here, I bring the finish score. (Spoken)
Your chains are still mine, you belong to me! Phantom:
Why so silent, good monsieurs?
