Spectrum Theatri Melodramatici

I have finished the title song of the play "The Phantom of the Opera."  Here it is, in both Latin and English.

CHRISTINA:
Dum somniebam mihi cantavit
Venit mihi in meis somniis
Haec vox mihi quod vocat et meum nomen dicit
Et somnione, quia nunc invenio
Spectrum theatri melodramatici adest
In mea mente
 SPECTRUM:
Canta iterum mihi
Nostrum insolitum bicinum
Mea potestas crescit
Quamuam verteris pone spectare
Spectrum theatri melodramatici adest
In tua mente
 CHRISTINA:
Hi tuam facietem qui vidunt
Sunt territi
Sum tuus mascus
Spectrum:
Audiunt me
 CHRISTINA ET SPECTRUM:
 Tua/mea spiritus
Et tua/mea vox
Sunt coniunctae
Spectrum theatri melodramatici
Est in mea/tua mente
CHORUS:
Adest, spectrum theatri melodramatici
Cave, spectrum theatri melodramatici
Adest, spectrum theatri melodramatici
Cave, spectrum theatri melodramatici
 SPECTRUM:
In tuis moniis
Scivisti semper
Vir et mysterium
 CHRISTINA:
Erant tibi
 CHRISTINA ET SPECTRUM:
Et in hoc labyrintho,
ubi nox caeca est,
Spectrum theatri melodramatici adest,
In tua/mea mente 
CHRISTINA:
Adest, spectrum theatri melodramatici
SPECTRUM:
Angelus musicae!
Canta, meus angele musicae!
Canta, meus angele
Canta mihi
Canta, meus angele
Canta mihi!

Here is the English.

CHRISTINE
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
PHANTOM
Sing once again with me
Our strange duet
My power over you grows stronger yet
And though you turn from me to glance behind
The Phantom of the Opera is there
Inside your mind.
CHRISTINE
Those who have seen your face
Draw back in fear
I am the mask you wear
PHANTOM
It's me they hear...
BOTH
Your/My spirit and my/your voice in one combined
The Phantom of the Opera is there/here
Inside my/your mind
BACKGROUND
He's there, the phantom of the opera!
Beware, the phantom of the opera!
He's there, the phantom of the opera!
Beware the phantom of the opera!
PHANTOM
In all your fantasies, you always knew
that man and mystery
CHRISTINE
Were both in you
BOTH
And in this labyrinth
where night is blind
the Phantom of the Opera is there/here,
inside my/your mind
CHRISTINE
He's there, the phantom of the opera
PHANTOM
The angel of music!
PHANTOM
Sing, my Angel of Music
Sing, my Angel
Sing for me
Sing, my Angel!
Sing for me!

Thank you for reading.
