The final reprise of Love never Dies sung by the Phantom was improvised by Ramin Karimloo in the final performance of the London production of Love Never Dies. Andrew Lloyd Webber loved it so much he incorporated it into the Australian production. See more »
During 'Gustave! Gustave!' Gustave says, 'Please Miss Giry I want to go back!' but his mouth doesn't move. The shot is from the scene afterwards when Meg takes him to the pier to drown him before the confrontation, while the other scene is in Coney while Christine & the Phantom are looking for him.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies will not disappoint the Phantom faithful. The film version is an unfortunate necessity, as the live musical will not be played in the USA with its original cast. My only complaint with the filming of the musical is that instead of a broader, panned out view, the shots are very zoomed, leaving out other happenings on stage and exposing actors' microphones and hair pieces. Ben Lewis does the great Michael Crawford homage with his strong, clear voice. ALW triumphs with beautiful recurring themes and an exciting rock sound for songs like 'Beneath a Moonless Sky' and 'The Beauty Underneath', delighting Phans with the occasional riff from the original. Finally, the last half hour is consistently unpredictable, edge-of-your-seat exciting. Love Never Dies is sufficiently unique, yet powerful and unique to hold a flame to its precursor and stand alone as another spell- binding ALW show.
