These earrings were originally designed for my mother due to her love of classical times like Henry the 8th, the Tudors and more. However the antiqued and jeweled design of these would be PERFECT in an opera house.
If I had to choose a moment when these would be worn; I would say either in the beginning by Carlotta as she sings "Think of me" In the movie Minnie Driver had QUITE the get up on but I saw no earrings. Due to the amount of jewels on her head and such I think a simple earring like this would do. Or in the end at the final performance, "The Phantom's Opera", Christine could have worn these then as could ANY lady in the house watching the show.
The phantom is TRULY one of my most favorite pieces. I haven't seen much opera in my life but I was raised to the tapes of Micheal Crawford and Sarah Brightman. How amazing it was!! I had a book that showed step by step applications of the mask to Michael Crawford's face. I loved to see up close articles and read about how they designed things. Such a fascinating piece of work The Phantom is!! At first I didn't care much for the newer movie but the more I watched it the more I loved it. Emmy Rossum who plays Christine can convey SUCH emotion with just the look of her eyes. Gerard Butler having been a law student taking acting jobs to pay bills had big shoes to fill when he stepped into the Phantom role. When I consider that the guy never had an acting class nor singing lessons for that matter, I start to see what an accomplishment he made and give him much credit where credit is due.
