The Phantom of the Opera, Carlotta's (Minnie Driver) dressing room portrait from The Phantom of the Opera.

original set dressing / pieces

“I hope he was excited by dancing girls as your new managers, because *I* WILL NOT BE SINGING!” Carlotta's (Minnie Driver) dressing room portrait from Joel Schumacher's 2004 film adaptation of the West End musical The Phantom of the Opera. A disfigured and murderous musical genius who lives beneath the Paris Opera House becomes obsessed with a beautiful young soprano. The diva's elaborate portrait, showing Carlotta standing with a severed head upon a platter, was hung in her lavish dressing room and was one of the many Opera House antiquities sold in the auction scenes. The portrait was painted by head scenic artist James Gemmill and is executed in oils on canvas, supported by a wooden frame. The painting is signed by Gemmill in the bottom left corner. Musical fans may notice an ‘Easter Egg' from the production team, as the head is that of none other than the composer, Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber. There are some scratches in the canvas just left of centre, however overall the piece remains in good condition. Materials: Canvas, Wood. Item size - 74.8" x 47.64" x 0.79" (190cm x 121cm x 2cm
