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 »

Thin plot, some outstanding music, 3 July 2012
Author: davidgee from United Kingdom

Ten years after from the fire in Paris which was thought to have destroyed him, the Phantom is running a Freak Circus on Coney Island. His Paris protegee Christine is lured to New York with the promise of a fee that will settle the gambling debts of her handsome but drippy husband Raoul; they bring their 10-year-old son with them. Raoul doesn't want her to sing for the Phantom.

That's about it as regards story: fairly thin. But if there's less plot in this sequel there are just as many - and better - songs. These alternate between arias for the principals (echoes of Franz Lehar and Ivor Novello, more operetta than opera) and production numbers in the circus which have the look of CHICAGO and the sound, here and there, of themes from STARLIGHT EXPRESS. The routine which presumably ends Act One in theatres, with the circus freaks inside mirrored obelisks, is simply dazzling; and the title song in Act Two and a duet/trio called 'Devil Take the Hindmost' are also outstanding.

The Coney Island set - with hotel settings lowered and revolved in as needed - is much less intricate than the opera house in PHANTOM but it's a visual feast; hard to believe this was built for a show on tour. Costumes also excellent.

Ben Lewis and Anna O'Byrne in the leading roles have very much the sound of Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman from the original, although Lewis has the lofty saturnine look of Christopher Lee's Dracula and Ms O'Byrne often reminded me of Vivien Leigh's Scarlett O'Hara!

The London stage production of LOVE NEVER DIES has not echoed PHANTOM's 25-years and still running: it didn't last even 25 months. The Australian production now on DVD deserves its rave reviews. Both visually and musically it is just as thrilling as the original PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.
