Love Never Dies, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s sequel to his stage production of Phantom of the Opera, debuted last night, March 9th, at London’s Adelphi Theatre to decidedly mixed reviews, and here are some of the highlights.
The BBC provided a “review round-up” that included the following:
The synopsis of Love Never Dies, starring Ramin Karimloo as The Phantom and Sierra Boggess as Christine, is as follows:
Ten years after the mysterious disappearance of The Phantom from the Paris Opera House, Christine Daaé accepts an offer to come to America and perform at New York’s fabulous new playground of the world – Coney Island. Arriving in New York with her husband Raoul and their son Gustave, Christine soon discovers the identity of the anonymous impresario who has lured her from France to sing.
This brand-new show is a roller coaster ride of obsession and intrigue in which music and memory can play cruel tricks … and The Phantom sets out to prove that, indeed, LOVE NEVER DIES.
The musical also will be staged in New York beginning November 11, 2010 and will open in Australia in 2011. For more visit the official Love Never Dies website.
