Untitled[edit]

The original novel was published in France in 1910. Someone keeps changing it to 1911. That date is INCORRECT unless you only count publication in English.

The 'fan' Christine[edit]

Is this section untrue, or is there some other reason that anonymous users keep deleting it?

Christine Daaé is also a Phantom of the Opera fan who legally changed her name to that of the character, and who ran the Phantom Appreciation Society for four years.

  • It's real. The pattern of deletions suggests that someone with a "rival" Christine Daae website keeps removing the reference. Masked Angel 23:37, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

She is indeed real, but I have no idea why people are deleting it. - Vega pleiades

She is real, she ran the international Phantom fan club in the days before the internet and ran one of the first Phantom websites. I think some people just don't like "big name fans" being mentioned on Wikipedia?

There seems little point in adding information about a fan, when the article is about the charater. ElphaPearl (talk) 18:06, 11 February 2008 (UTC)
  • I think it's relevant and should be added back. - DD —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.189.35.63 (talk) 17:56, 11 March 2008 (UTC)
If she is that notable then she should have her own page. This page is about Christine Daae the character, not someone who happens to have changed their name in admiration. ElphaPearl (talk) 21:02, 21 March 2008 (UTC)

Christine's Age[edit]

I have removed the line that states that Christine was 18, as this is not stated in the novel. All the textual evidence points towards Christine being the same age as Raoul, ie. 20 or 21.

  • I am editing the article to clarify this point, as one translation inaccurately translates a passage to state that Christine is 17 years old. This is a mistranslation. Christine's timescale (such as her friendship with Raoul and her studies at the Conservatory) put her at about 20 years old. ~~ —Preceding unsigned comment added by Broken Wing (talkcontribs) 14:09, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Popular Movies Table[edit]

This article is about the character Christine Daaé, and yet the table in the "Popular Movies" section does not list the actress who portrayed this character, while it does list the actor playing the Phantom. Is there any reason for this? I believe a column should be added featuring the actress' name (or completely replace the "title role" column with this actress column). The same can be said for the Free Adaptations table. 24.101.31.180 (talk) 19:34, 27 October 2017 (UTC)

Why Daaé?[edit]

Does somebody know the reason why the author chose the name Daaé for the female protagonist? The name is hardly Swedish or French. Surely it is so unusual that the author may have chosen it for a specific reason. Daae (with no diacritic) or just Daa was a medieval surname of a family of Danish nobility. In Danish it means doe, a female deer.
