Trivia

According to Andrew Lloyd Webber, the title song "Love Never Dies" was first sung under the title "The Heart is Slow to Learn" in 1998 by Kiri Te Kanawa at the Great Performances: Andrew Lloyd Webber: The Royal Albert Hall Celebration (1998) show; "The Heart is Slow to Learn" was originally written for a Phantom sequel (ideas began in 1990) that was unproduced and aborted. The song was then retitled as "Our Kind of Love" when it reappeared again in Lloyd Webber's other musical The Beautiful Game in 2000. When the song finally made its way home to this Phantom sequel as originally intended, now under the title "Love Never Dies", several media critics at the London 2010 musical premiere widely remarked that the title song bore much resemblance to Charles Williams' 1949 composition "Jealous Lover" (from the film Naughty Arlette (1949)), which was later retitled in 1960 as the popularly known "Theme from The Apartment" for Billy Wilder's Oscar Award-winning film The Apartment (1960). The first public performance of the song "Love Never Dies" as its new title was sung by Sierra Boggess at The South Bank Show: 2009 Awards (2010) to promote the premiere of the 2010 London musical sequel.

Quotes

Meg Giry: I took a little trip to Coney Island. I took a little trip because of you. I did as mother said, and followed where you lead, and tried to do what little I could do. But, here's the way it works on Coney Island, they make you pay for every little crumb. I gave what they would take, I gave it for your sake. Now look at me and see what I've become. Bathing Beauty, on a beach. Bathing Beauty in her dressing room. Bathing Beauty in the dark, on their laps, in their arms, in their beds.

Another beautiful story being destroyed by its sequel.
16 September 2012 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Since the time I went to SAO PAULO in Brazil and watched the Phantom of the Opera, I could confidently say that I was another lover of this story. The phantom of the opera is a set of beautiful sceneries, with beautiful music and a thrilling story. Nevertheless, as another author who got a little extra excited with the money made, Andrew Lloyd Webber created a sequel, based on a book that was just a floppy sequel for "the phantom of the opera" according to reviewers. Fortunately, who created this second book was not Gaston Leurox, which means, this book was pretty much a fanfic story. What to expect then? A new musical based on a fanfic story? Another big flop. "Love Never Dies" kills all the characters from the original, destroys the poetry existent in "The Phantom of the Opera", and in addition to it, it is full of clichés with a bad end. Nothing against New York, I particularly love this city, but not as a setting for "The Phantom". Music is just not as memorable, except for the "Till I hear you sing". The end, BLEEH, just made me cry. I was so disappointed with ALW. In my particular experience with theater, yes I have too agree they have SOME beautiful sceneries with lots of modernity. But the story is not just sceneries, and the big point that made the Phantom of the Opera the second most watched musical over the world was the truth behind the story; the passion that ALW created the musical, inspired by his ex-wife's (Sarah Brightman) voice. That's what lacks in "Love never dies"; the truth behind the characters, the love that just increases as the story goes by. I still think that ALW will get into his wits once again, and will get this story out of the theaters. Until there, the poetry from the original story will be trying to survive from this big shot in a hospital for killed dramas.
