This trophy from our saviours,
From our saviours
From the enslaving force of Rome!
With feasting and dancing and singing,
tonight in celebration,
we greet the victorious throng,
returned to bring salvation!
The trumpets of Carthage resound!
Hear, Romans, now and tremble!
Hark to our step on the ground!
Hear the drums -
by Roma's far-reaching grasp.
M. Lefevre, I am rehearsing.
As you know, for some weeks there have been rumours of my imminent retirement.
pleasure to introduce to you
And we're deeply honored to introduce our new patron, the Vicomte de Chagny
My parents and I are honored to support all the arts
Especially the world-renowned Opera Populaire
Signor Ubaldo Piangi.
An honour, Signor. I believe I'm keeping you for your rehearsal
I will be here this evening to share your great triumph
My apologies, monsieur
Thank you, M. Le Vicomte, once more, if you please, Signor
He loved me
We take a particular pride here in the excellence of our ballets, monsieur
I see why, especially the little blonde angel
My daughter, Meg Giry
And that exceptional beauty, no relation I trust
Christine Daae, promising talent, M. Firmin, very promising
Daae, you say? No relation to the famous Swedish violinist?
An orphan, you said?
Bid welcome to Hannibal's guests -
the elephants of Carthage!
As guides on our conquering quests,
The trumpeting elephants sound -
hear, Romans, now and tremble!
Hark to their step on the ground -
hear the drums!
