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.

VERY entertaining
8 March 2012 | by IOBdennisSee all my reviews

Very entertaining film of the musical. Camera work left a lot to be desired, however: too much movement around action shots. Lighting was very dark, and much of the set was constantly in the dark. Yes, of course, much of the set is supposed to be, I guess, in this vehicle, but the people were poorly light frequently, and the focus seemed to be blurry. I wondered if they were trying to shoot "Mame" with Lucille Ball. Really nice score. Clearly a Weber opera with leitmotifs from other shows and particularly "The Phantom". Nice touches throughout. Pretty duets and ballads. Singing was quite fine overall. Anne O'Byrne was quite good. The opening Phantom ballad however was a bit stagy. He was trying to sound too hard, I thought, like the original with the wobbly voice.
