    I think the music of Love Never Dies. The set is great and. while the story might not be as strong as Phantom of the Opera, it still holds its own.

    As a firm and dedicated phan to The Phantom of the Opera, I was at first skeptical about the release to a sequel but obviously ALW has outdone himself again with another great musical. Ignore the very first reviews about the London production since he has revamped it since. These actors on the DVD are from the successful Australian Production and have truly brought back to life a legend that thought it could not be outdone. For those who can't get enough of Phantom, this is for you. If you're a true die hard phan and think the sequel shouldn't of been created, you are sadly missing out.

    This does start out slow and I wondered how much I would like it

    This does start out slow and I wondered how much I would like it, but I had the beginning of tears in my eyes at the end. It has some of the music from the original sometimes with new lyrics, but much new music. The original doesn't always make sense to me and leaves me with questions. The ending of this makes much sense and ties together the beginning of the original with the auction and the ending of this new story. I'll need to rewatch both versions that I have of the original and then this one. The only thing that I wish - that they would have included a brochure/booklet about the DVD and production.

    I loved the music and the story line! The ending did not thrill

    I loved the music and the story line! The ending did not thrill me however but I suppose you can not expect a musical to go on and on.
    When Kiri te Kanawa sang "The Heart is Slow to Learn" at Andrew's birthday celebration I knew there was another musical in the making or at least in the thought stages. Andrew changed the lyrics for the musical but the original lyrics I think best suit Andrew's and Sarah Brightman's relationship and Kiri te Kanawa's relationship with Des. I love the song no mater what words are sung and the other music is brillant as is Andrew Lloyd Weber. Take care of yourself Andrew, I don't want to lose you ever!!!
