Phantom of the Opera Theme..Help!

So the theme for my wedding is Phantom of the Opera. I have plenty of ideas and even found lots of things I already know I "have" to have.
I just want to see if I can gain opinions and ideas. Any suggestions on ways to implement this theme? Here's what I'm doing so far:

French Inspired Theatre Venue for wedding and reception. (Wedding in front of curtains; curtains are raised later to reveal reception set up on stage.)
Music Stands for Place card holders.
Plantable paper skeleton keys attached to escort cards.
Red Roses in the bouquets and boutonnieres.
Gold and white masquearde masks and red or black feathers attached to red or black satin or lace sashes tied around the reception chairs.
Tall candelabras during the ceremony and as background decoration at the reception. Smaller gold candelabras as centerpieces at the reception.
Chiming monkey jewelry box to carry wedding rings in down the aisle.
Replicas of Christine Daae's jewelry and hair pains during her "Think of Me" performance.
Black table cloths with white dinner plates, red dessert plates, and gold napkins with a single red rose tied with a black ribbon inserted.
"All I Ask of You" as our first dance.
"Think of Me" instrumental, as the music down the aisle.
"Phantom of the Opera" Main Theme as the opening music when the guests walk into the theatre from cocktail hour in the lobby.
"Music of the Night" as our reception exit music.

Anything else anyone can think of would help so much :-) Thanks in advance!

    I think you hit it on the head.  Anything more may be too much. You still want it to be your wedding, and not all about just the theme.  I think you've done the perfect amount to incorporate your theme without it being too over the top.
