The link to where the photos came from suddenly went inactive, I don’t know if it’s just on my computer or in general. Got to save the photos before that happened, but I didn’t get to translate the article:

frenchtoastroast → Please, Miss Glassprism, can you gift use with a bootleg/audio(s) from Hamburg Phantom of the Opera? Preferably during/after 2005. If you don't want to, please direct me to someone who can and/or is willing to trade for it. I've never seen one in Hamburg or in Germany in general. But it looks wonderful! Please, notify me as soon as you can!!!! I am aware that you've probably gifted audio for it before.

Phantom of the Opera in Hamburg ran from about 1990 to 2001, so you’re unlikely to find anything of it from 2005. Anything after 2005 will be from the revival, which opened just recently (late 2013, I believe). For that reason, I don’t really feel comfortable gifting anything from there. However, I am quite certain I have reblogged posts of people who have gifted stuff of that production. You can check my gifts page for that. You can also check my gifts page for many, many, many other audios from the German productions of POTO in general.

Anonymous → Hi, you have no Greg Mils/Elizabeth Welch video listed on your site, but apparently you do have one, because you included it in one of your comparisons. Is there any way you be willing to trade this, or is it not for trade?

I don’t have it listed for trade because it was only the ‘Final Lair’ that was recorded. It was placed on YouTube anyway, so at the time it was freely available for anyone to watch, and besides, one scene is way too little for me to consider using it for trade.

Anyway, I believe the video clip has since been taken down, but before it was I had ripped off YouTube and saved it on my computer, so I was able to use it for subsequent comparison videos. I know the person who uploaded it follows me, so perhaps they will re-upload it for you.

Anonymous → Hi! Was there ever an official or soundboard recording of the Polish cast? Because on YouTube, there's some songs and they sound amazingly clear and also it said "bonus tracks" on some with Kaja. Also, I don't know if you have the restaged US video, but I was wondering if you could post PONR from it. Thank you!!!!!!

There were definitely soundboards recorded of the cast - I have one of Edyta Krzemien, and I think I have another, possibly either of her or of Paulina Janczak. It would not surprise me if there were more and if they were of Kaja Mianowana.

Also, I think I might have ripped several of those off YouTube and placed them in the folder of my copy of the Polish cast recording under the heading ‘Bonus’, so if anyone has downloaded that and is wondering about it - yeah, that’s my fault. The actual Polish recording does not come with that.

I don’t really want to post any clips from the video of the US tour, but I’m sure there are plenty of people around here who are willing to do it. Or you can go on YouTube and request it from users who have already posted some clips.

Anonymous → Might be an odd question, and my apologies if you have answered this before. But who do you think has the most special or memorable or unique Christine voices?

Oooh…

  • Sarah Brightman - Her voice is instantly recognizable: that certain “dewdrop” quality, the diction, the vibrato. Whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to the individual fan, but I think almost everyone agrees that it’s definitely unique.
  • Claire Moore - She has a certain warm tone to her voice coupled with excellent diction and a noticeable but adorable little lisp. Another voice that most will instantly be able to pinpoint as hers after just a few listens.
  • Rebecca Caine - I find it really hard to describe what exactly is memorable about her voice, but I think everyone who hears her knows. It’s something about the way she sings, her pronunciation, and her occasional breathy quality (more noticeable in the London recordings of her).
  • Patti Cohenour - A lot of these early Christines seem to have had the most unique voices. Patti Cohenour is rather interesting, with a sort of husky sound and a fast vibrato, but sounding very light (almost “crystalline” is how I would describe it) on her high notes.
  • Elisabeth Berg - Probably one of the darkest Christine voices I’ve ever heard, but also a really operatic-sounding voice with wonderful diction, though the last is probably more noticeable if you understand Swedish.
  • Rachel Barrell - Rather like Sarah Brightman, her vocal qualities can be polarizing, due to a certain nasal sound (more present on recordings than live, I’ve heard) along with a certain thick quality. Also memorable is the power of her high notes, which sound really sure and strong.

Honorable mentions to Maria Kesselman, Joke de Kruijf, and perhaps Gina Beck and Sofia Escobar.

Anonymous → I know you did one already and there is one but could you do a "Tears of hate..." comparison the one you made seems to be only audio and the other one is very short and there are not many christines I would like to see videos of multiple Christines

Well… when doing the “tears of hate” comparison, my focus was on voice, not acting. Certainly there are variations in expressions and movements between actresses, but I thought it was more important to listen to how they were singing it vs. their acting during that moment. So for that reason, I chose to do an audio comparison, which also allowed me to put in more Christines, as obviously there are less filmed Christines than there are audio recorded Christines.

So, yeah. I don’t think I would do a video comparison of that line, it’s just sort of redundant given that I already have an audio comparison already up. Sorry!

Anonymous → Hey, so about the final lair in the restaged US tour: I've seen the GIFset going around Tumblr. And then I read some reviews saying that it's even worse. And then there are other reports saying that he doesn't really touch her like that, but rather puts a hand on her arm? What exactly is the blocking here? Like does this depend on the day (losing its meaning)? I do love some aspects of the tour and I think the idea is actually quite nice (although rather poorly executed) but it confuses me a lot

You can watch video of the US tour’s ‘Final Lair’ here; that should give you a sense of what’s going on. In response to your question: people who have seen Cooper Grodin report that he does get quite violent towards Christine and shoves her around on the bed, but those who have watched other Phantoms on the tour, such as Allan Snyder, report that their Phantoms are much less violent. So to me, it sounds like there is a set blocking of a sort, perhaps requiring that the Phantom move Christine to his bed or something, but that it can vary between actors.
