ANDR
M’sieur Firmin?

FIRMIN
M’sieur Andr?

FIRMIN
Dear Andr,
what a splendid party!

ANDR
The prologue
to a bright new year!

FIRMIN
Quite a night!
I’m impressed!

ANDR
Well, one does
one’s best…

ANDRFIRMIN
Here’s to us!

FIRMIN
I must say,
all the same, that
it’s a shame that ‘Phantom’
fellow isn’t here!

CHORUS
Masquerade!
Paper faces on parade…
Masquerade!
Hide your face,
so the world will
never find you!

Masquerade!
Every face a different shade…
Masquerade!
Look around –
there’s another
mask behind you!

Flash of mauve…
Splash of puce…
Fool and king…
Ghoul and goose…
Green and black…
Queen and priest…
Trace of rouge…
Face of beast…

Faces…
Take your turn, take a ride
on the merry-go-round…
*in an inhuman race…
*
*Eye of gold…
Thigh of blue…
True is false…
Who is who…?
Curl of lip…
Swirl of gown…
Ace of hearts…
Face of clown…

Faces…
Drink it in, drink it up,
till you’ve drowned
in the light…
in the sound…

RAOULCHRISTINE
But who can name the face…

ALL
Masquerade!
Grinning yellows,
spinning reds…
Masquerade!
Take your fill –
let the spectacle
astound you!

Masquerade!
Burning glances,
turning heads…
Masquerade!
Stop and stare
