Sony Classical released the soundtrack recording of The Phantom of the Opera in two versions. The single-disc original soundtrack recording features all the key numbers from the score, including the new end-title song by Lloyd Webber and lyricist Charles Hart. A deluxe, specially priced two-disc version (charting at #127 on Billboard's Top 200) includes all of the music from the film in a collector's edition package.

The score has also been translated and recorded in French, Italian, Spanish and German, and the soundtrack will be released internationally in those languages.

Sales of the original cast recording of the stage production of The Phantom of the Opera have surpassed 24 million units worldwide. As theatrical productions of the show continue to run around the world -- including those on Broadway and in London's West End -- the film version will be the first major musical to hit the screen s
ince the Oscar-winning triumph of Chicago in 2002.

The soundtrack is a hit-laden score that includes such enduring favorites as "Music of the Night," "All I Ask of You," "Think of Me," "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" and the new end-title song, "Learn To Be Lonely" (recently nominated for a Golden Globe).

For better or worse, Andrew Lloyd Webber's adaptation of Gaston Leroux's gothic horror/romance novel has done for stage musicals what Spielberg's Jaws did for fish stories, with worldwide sales of its original cast album approaching 25 million.

While director Joel Schumacher's film turns on his typically ambitious visual verve, its new film soundtrack recording has been paradoxically focused in scope, yet beefed up dynamically via the brawny presence of a hundred piece orchestra and The London Boys Choir.

The single disc version showcases all of Phantom's key songs (a deluxe, double-disc edition is also available), with Gerard Butler imparting a welcome, youthful sensuality to his Phantom, making a fine foil for Emmy Rossum's ever-conflicted Christine.

Original show orchestrator David Cullen has fashioned compelling new contemporary arrangements to frame Webber's songs -- which now conclude with the lilting, upbeat new ballad he wrote for the film, "Learn to Be Lonely," sung by Minnie Driver. --Jerry McCulley
