* NeverendingTerror: Some of Christine's lines referring to the title character include: "My God who is this man/Who hunts to kill/I can't escape from him/I never will". Referring to the plan to stage ''Don Juan Triumphant'' (the Phantom's own opera) with her performance as bait for a trap, Christine is reluctant to perform and says:
--> Raoul I'm frightened. Don't make me do this. It scares me.
--> Don't put me through this ordeal by fire. He'll take me. I know.
--> We'll be parted forever. He won't let me go.
--> What I once used to dream, I now dread. If he finds me, it won't ever end.

** Likewise, Madame Giry in the novel was a superstitious box keeper who wasn't aware of the Phantom's real nature. In this version, she's a much more savvy ballet mistress who's much more aware of who the Phantom is and what his goals are, and eventually helps Raoul to hunt him down.

** If we're going to be picky, the Phantom's iconic fedora is technically one of these; while the musical is set in 1881, homburg hats - from which fedoras would develop - wouldn't rocket to popularity until later on in the 1880s.

* DiegeticMusic: the show takes place in an ''opera'' house, and several (very abbreviated) theatrical productions are staged over the course of its run-time. About a quarter of its music is diegetic.

* ForgottenFramingDevice: The show opens with an elderly Raoul attending an auction of the opera house's items which segues into main story when they show the chandelier. Raoul's lines imply that Christine has died but the play ends with her still alive and never returns to the framing story.

* StylisticSuck: The three fictional operas performed in the course of the story (''Hannibal'', a parody of the grand late classical operas from the like of Meyerbeer and Gluck, ''Il Muto'', an obvious parody of Mozart -- or one of that crowd -- and ''Don Juan Triumphant'', Sir Andrew's spoof on serialism in modern opera, overwrought with dissonance, and bathing in clichés.
