Overview: The ultimate love story continues in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s spectacular musical Love Never Dies, a sequel to the legendary “Phantom of the Opera.” From musical theater’s most captivating composer and featuring the new highly-acclaimed Australian production filmed in Melbourne, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies arrives on Blu-rayTM with perfect hi-def picture and perfect hi-def sound and DVD on May 29, 2012.  With lush visuals and a mesmerizing score that rivals the original in power and beauty, this live production of Love Never Dies is a romantic necessity for every Broadway fan’s collection.


The year is 1907 and ten years have passed since the Phantom’s disappearance from the Paris Opera House.  He has escaped to a new life in New York where he lives amongst the screaming joy rides and freak-shows of Coney Island. In this new electrically-charged world, he has finally found a place for his music to soar. All that is missing is his love - Christine Daaé.  Now one of the world’s finest sopranos, Christine is struggling in an ailing marriage to Raoul.  So, it is with excitement she accepts an invitation to travel to New York and perform at a renowned opera house. In a final bid to win back her love, the Phantom lures Christine, her husband, and their young son Gustave from Manhattan, to the glittering and glorious world of Coney Island… not knowing what is in store for them.
For those of you who love “Phantom of the Opera”, there is a new DVD that you have got to check out. It is a direct sequel to the Phantom and a slightly tweaked version of when it first appeared on stage. The new film/ musical is called “Love Never Dies”. It is an immediate classic, Taking place ten years after the events of the Phantom of the Opera.

The phantom from the first musical is now in charge of his own show. He has moved on from his lost love, so it seems only fitting that she (Christine) shows up and makes him reevaluate his situation.

To me, the story was just as powerful as the first. I actually liked the songs and performance better. There are advancements made since the filming of Phantom, and you can most certainly tell that the production was done in 2011/12.

Any fan of the first or theatre productions in general owe it to themselves to check this out. The film will no doubt be remembered for what it is and the leaps it takes in this style of filming. Many people have waited a very long time for this, and it has certainly been a long time coming.

  1. I do not want to give too much away, but Christine is lured to Coney Island with her drunken husband and 10 year old son, to sing for a large sum of money which she really needs after her husband Raul has become an alcoholic, and lost all their money and wealth over the years, so this is Christine's chance to get back to the life she once enjoyed all those years ago.

    There is Drama, love and sadness as there was in the original Phantom of the opera and throughout Love Never Dies there are afew subtle references back to the original show through the music score, When Christine sings her signature song the scene too my breath away. If you loved Phantom of the Opera, you will love, Love never dies, Keep and open mind as the story unfolds as you follow this musical and I'm sure you will not be disappointed.
