Transcript of The Phantom of the Opera

Situational Archetypes
The task is arduous and daunting, the ultimate goal is achieved by fulfilling this task.
An example of the task found in Phantom of the Opera is the hunt for the Phantom after he burns down the opera house.

The Task
Is a period of epiphany for a character in which he/she realizes something about the world that they previously didn't know.
An example of the the initiation found in Phantom is when The Phantom finally gets Christine, only to realize that his actions were misguided and they weren't meant to be.
The Initiation The forces of good face off against the forces of evil.

An example found in The Phantom of the Opera is the conflict between the Phantom, who represents evil and darkness, against Christine, who represents purity and all that is good.
The Battle of Good and Evil A remaining scar found in a character that often represents the loss of innocence, as well a significant change in the character.

An example found in Phantom is his face. His face has been deformed since birth, and was the reason for his dark, isolated life. This miserable isolation causes him to not only lose his "innocence," but also his sanity, and drives him to desperate measures, such as kidnapping Christine. The Unhealable Wound A skill or talent that usually revolves around a character, and is generally used to resolve the plot.

In the Musical, darkness is in pretty much everything associated with the Phantom. He lurks in the dark, strikes in the dark, and he even call his music the "Music of the Night." Black Colors Represents an intense passion.

In Phantom, both the red rose and the Phantom's red costume at the masquerade ball represent his passion for Christine. Red Often used to represent innocence and good.

The Phantom uses his white mask as a mask of innocence to deceive Christine into not seeing the monster behind it. However, at the end of the musical it also symbolizes the little bit of goodness that's hidden in his heart. White Character Archetypes A hero leaves when young and returns at a later point in the plot helps resolve the conflict.

Raoul, after leaving in his youth, comes back as a wealthy educated man, and assists in the defeat of the Phantom. The Young Person From the Provinces This is an initially evil character who is "shown the light" by a pure-hearted character.

After capturing Christine and tying up Raoul in his lair, Christine kisses the Phantom, and he realizes the error of his ways. The Evil Figure With the Ultimately Good Heart These characters are companions to the protagonists. They function as support characters, and help the protagonist to reach his or her goal.

Raoul is the loyal retainer to Christine, because he acts as her sidekick and works to protects her from the Phantom. Loyal Retainer This is a character who's excluded in society because of some sort of crime he or she has committed in the past.

In the Musical, the Phantom is an outcast because of his deformed face. While he could not help being deformed, it still causes him to become shunned from society. The Outcast
