Floor Janson & Henk Poort – Phantom of the Opera


In sleep he sang to me
In dreams he came
That voice which calls to me
And speaks my name
And do I dream again?
For now I find
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside my mind

Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you
Grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me
And glance behind
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside your mind

Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear
It’s me they hear

Your spirit and your voice
In one combined
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside my mind

In all your fantasies
You always knew
That man and mystery
Were both in you
And in this labyrinth
Where night is blind
The phantom of the opera is there
Inside my mind

Sing for me my angel of music
He’s there, the phantom of the opera
Sing for me
Ah, ah
Sing my angel of music
Ah, ah
Sing for me, sing for me

  1. p.s. Okay…. so your and Ember’s comments just got me to actually watch this…. it is absolutely phenomenal…. beyond beyond beyond…. truly. With the spectators’ expressions included, which show how one feels when observing it all, and the incredible electricity and creative love and talent between the two singers…. my gods, you have truly shared something amazing here Robbie. Very grateful to you. Thanks again. ❤️🙏

  2. Lia it truly was my absolute pleasure it is a really beautiful performance and no matter how many times I watch it always sends chills down my spine but in the most beautiful way I get so many emotions watching Floor and Henk sing this.❤️🙏🏻

  3. Totally!!!!! As a kid (or teen? can’t remember now) this play didn’t resonate at all, I just felt it was confusing, terrifying and sad, if I remember right (it was a very long time ago!!) but this performance shows the essence of it as something beautiful.
    💗🌷 I’ll have to somehow see the entire thing again! xoxo

  4. You’re absolutely right I think I was in my teens when I saw it and I was confused about parts of it too only a long way down the road it resonated with me and I actually came across this version of the song and Henk Poort also does an incredible version of Sound of Silence it’s truly beautiful.❤️🌹

  5. OMG! I just looked it up on YT – this version came up first for me – it’s some beautiful singing coach watching it and commenting on it and the performance is absolutely STUNNING. When people can let themselves just shine like this it’s such a powerful, powerful thing. As any of us who have ever observed or worked with creative muse knows.

  6. It is absolutely beautiful and so haunting I do love a good reaction video too especially if it’s Floor Jansen singing people who have never heard her sing almost lose their minds when she hits so many beautiful notes.Im so happy you enjoyed it I really am.
