- Novel by Gaston Leroux, 1911
Christine Daaé sings the role of Marguerite in the Final Trio at the opera gala after Carlotta mysteriously becomes ill. Her performance is remarkable, but her passion as she swept herself into the role is so great, she faints right on stage after she finishes the song. Later, Raoul hears her tell someone in her dressing room, "I gave you my soul tonight." Christine has now become famous. It is a battle to the bitter end from then on between Christine and Carlotta, as the Phantom consistently insists Christine sing the role. It is this opera Carlotta is trying to sing when the Phantom puts a frog in her throat, so to speak.
- Silent Movie starring Lon Chaney, 1925
Carlotta receives a threatening note by the Opera Ghost telling her that Christine will sing the role of Marguerite in Faust. Carlotta's mother is outraged and takes this to the managers. They agree to let Carlotta sing as planned, but she mysteriously falls ill at the last moment. Christine is cast into the role at the last minute, and becomes an instant success. It is kind of cute the way Raoul gazes at Christine from his private box, as Marguerite is carried by angels to Heaven at the end of the opera ("Apotheosis"). The Phantom is not happy to stop there. The next time Carlotta tries to sing this role, the chandelier falls during her performance ("The Jewel Song").
- Movie starring William Finley, 1974
The Phantom, while still known as Winslow Leach, composes a rock cantata about Faust. The villain in power loves it; it's Leach he hates. Faust has its reality in this film, but not exactly for the Phantom. This time, in a "Faust meets Dorian Gray" scenario, it is real for the villain Swan who made a pact with the devil: his soul for eternal youth.
- Movie starring Maximillian Schell, 1983
The background music from "The Church Scene" during the opening credits foreshadow the gloomy nature of this movie and the demonic nature of this Phantom. The movie begins with a rehearsal of Faust, "The Jewel Song" in particular. Elena Korvin struggles with the aria, in sharp contrast later to the darling, over-the-top Brigida Bianchi. Bianchi flawlessly rehearses not only this aria, but also her curtsy to the audience. ("I must acknowledge their applause," she tells the director.) As the story progresses, the opera becomes all too real for the Phantom and his prize diva as he becomes the Mephistopheles to her Marguerite. It seems as though this movie, in spirit, is a two-hour Church Scene.
- Musical by Ken Hill, 1984
A few different scenes from Faust are included in this show. Carlotta dies a comical death after trying to sing "The Jewel Song" and suffering the frog in her throat, courtesy of the Phantom. Christine is singing "The Final Trio" from The Prison Scene with the other performers when she is kidnapped. The same tune to "Valentin's Aria" is used in the Phantom's song to Christine: "Ne'er Forsake Me, Here Remain."
- Movie starring Robert Englund, 1989
When Christine first wakes up in Victorian England and the company continues their rehearsals, Carlotta can be heard singing "Il était un Roi de Thulé" in the background. Later on, when Christine gets singing lessons from the Phantom via her dressing room mirror, she is singing "The Jewel Song." Christine sings it again later on stage after Carlotta becomes "ill" at the last moment. The opera becomes all too real for the Phantom. As he watches the opera from box five, and Mephistopheles makes his entrance ("Me Voici"), he dwells on the bitter memories of the moment he sold his own soul to the devil and was horribly disfigured for eternity.
- Movie starring Charles Dance, 1990
In sharp contrast to the 1983 movie, Mephistopheles ("Mephisto") is kept fictional in this romantic miniseries. The talented actor playing Mephisto is a friendly charmer and a gentle giant. He even takes pity on Christine (along with the cute, chubby tenor who plays Faust), asking the audience not to boo her, when her voice gives way during her debut (thanks to the jealous Carlotta). At one point, he is wrongfully nearly arrested while still in costume when he is mistaken for the Phantom. For reasons not clearly explained, Christine knows she can bring the Phantom up if she is permitted to sing the role of Marguerite. It works. She is singing "The Jewel Song" when the Phantom first hears her and begins to walk up from his lair. The role of Faust becomes real for both Christine and Erik for one blissfully romantic Phuzzy Phantom Moment.
- Novel by Susan Kay, 1991
Carlotta ignores the Phantom's threats and performs as Marguerita in Faust. She gets a frog in her throat, courtesy of the Phantom, and so Christine is cast into the role. It becomes her claim to fame.
