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 (#36.11)" (2010) to promote the premiere of the 2010 London musical sequel.See more »

Revealing mistakes: 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.See more »

Love Never Dies stands alone, 8 March 2012
Author: djmurray59 from United States

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.
