From Amazon.co.uk

It was always going to be a bold and potentially divisive move to attempt to follow-up a spectacular musical success such as The Phantom Of The Opera. Yet that’s what Andrew Lloyd Webber decided to do, when he picked up the story ten years afterwards, for Love Never Dies. On stage, the show is technically demanding and visually stunning, whilst keeping a surprisingly intimate love story at its core. And the transferring of the production to Blu-ray has worked surprisingly well. If you’re wary of dry recreations of musicals on disc, then worry not: Love Never Dies is presented exceptionally well.

There’s one element of the disc release in particular that it’s worth dwelling on, and that’s the audio. The exceptional surround sound mix featured on the disc is terrific and engulfing, and adds terrifically to the on-screen visuals. You can’t ever recreate the feeling of watching something like Love Never Dies in a packed auditorium, yet this release runs it surprisingly close.

What’s also included is a look at the making of the show in the first place. This is quite an insightful piece, filling in some of the background to Love Never Dies, and what brought it to life in the first place. It complements the main feature very well.

And that main feature? Love Never Dies, perhaps inevitably, never reaches quite the same heights as Phantom. But it does still work, really very well. It’s a welcome extension to the story, with music that’s set to stick in your head for some time afterwards. Recommended. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful production of a wonderful show 13 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
Watched the new DVD of "Love Never Dies" last night. Fantastic production but very different from the concept album that I'm very familiar with and also different from the London production I saw a couple of years ago.

Great casting of The Phantom and Christine, perfect for portraying who they have become in this story but I was none too sure about Meg Giry, supposedly Coney Island's "Ooh La Lah Girl". Raoul and Madame Giry seemed about right and the freaks who serve as narrators of a sort throughout the story were wonderful.

While I was a little disappointed with their take on "Devil Take the Hindmost", in which The Phantom did not seem to be goading Raoul quite enough, I thought their interpretation of "Beneath a Moonless Sky" and "Beauty Underneath" were amazing!

Fabulous sets and costumes really seemed to capture the essence of the story and the subtle updatings of The Phantom's wardrobe made more sense, I thought, than the London production where he seemed to be dressed exactly the same as he was in Paris ten years previously - a very different time and place.

Some interesting changes to the plot cleared up some of the less plausible aspects of the original story and filled in a few plot-holes while only managing to create one new one which I thought was fairly good going. I was interested to see that some of the lyrics remain the same but are now sung by different characters in different contexts whereas others seem completely re-written, retaining only the tune and the basic theme of the originals. There was also much more use of refrains and "samples" from the original "Phantom of the Opera" to which this is a sequel. The London production did this too but with different pieces at different points in the story and to a much lesser extent.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As a huge fan of 'Phantom of the Opera', I went to see 'Love Never Dies' as soon as it opened in London. At the end, I left the theatre feeling more than a little bemused and a tad disappointed. The performances were excellent, (Ramin Karimloo) but the plot seemed to contradict 'Phantom' in several puzzling aspects, and parts of the production, notably the climax, were oddly limp. I do understand that, later, the London production was improved and re-jigged (sadly, I missed my chance to see it), but this Melbourne production is just something else! An absolute knock-out with fantastic, imaginative staging and all the emotion that the London preview production I saw didn't quite deliver. The music is stunning, the leads are powerful and it's one of the most visually exciting pieces I've seen in a long while.

Please bring the Melbourne re-staging to London! In the meantime, I thoroughly recommend this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wizards of Oz 14 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
When Andrew Lloyd Webber announced a 'Phantom' sequel, I thought that he was a little cavalier about tinkering with the 'single biggest piece of entertainment in history'. Of course, it was his to tinker with but was it best left alone? Unfortunately, when 'Love Never Dies' hit the London stage, it got mixed reviews and a concerted campaign from 'phans' who thought that 'love should die' didn't help either. I only saw 'Love Never Dies' in preview in London - I didn't see the revised version.

The Melbourne production is, however, extremely good. The leap from the London preview version to this one is big. A lot of the improvements may have ended up later in London, but the issues with the original book have been skilfully tackled. The premise for getting Christine to sing in America; the musical and theatrical links to 'Phantom of the Opera; the ending. All of these are so much better in this production.

I always thought that Andrew Lloyd Webber's score for this production contains some of his finest work. It was such a shame that he was let down by the creative team in London. I am sure that if the Melbourne production had been the one that originally opened in London - it would still be running now to packed houses. If Charles Hart had been hired to write the lyrics from 'Day 1' and the production team, who are undoubtedly 'Wizards of Oz' had also been on board, this show would be packing them in on Broadway too by now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Never Dies Reinvented on Bluray 17 Feb 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This new production of Love Never Dies and its presentation on Bluray HD is brilliant with stunning cinematography. The new production is taut and fluid and the storyline and characters interactions make a lot more sense. The humanity(and frailty)of the characters is developed, particularly the Phantom. The production has strong musical integrity and the Australian cast across the board is brilliant. The DVD/BD is set to inject the production with a new international life.
Seen the London production and twice in Australia, and have the Bluray. Many people have dismissed the original LND production and the subsequent reworked UK version based on what seems to be a fear that somehow the original "Phantom of the Opera" was compromised. This Australian version has not been seen in London - it was redesigned,choreographed and generally reinvigorated in Australia to huge success on the stage. Hopefully people will view this DVD(or better still BD) with an open mind, and that the success this version has already had, will encourage Lloyd-Webber to open it on Broadway and maybe even again in the UK. As far as the DVD goes, I have no doubt this will be considered one of the best filmed versions of a staged production!

Arrived promptly. The shipper can hardly be blamed for the poor quality of this musical. After Phantom of the opera, Andrew Lloyd Webber, seems to have come off the boil.

Visually very pleasing and at points the score comes to life, but over all I was disappointed, as a fan of Phantom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as Phantom
Very good story and great costumes. It can't compare to Phantom though which was excellent. But if you are a fan its worth getting.
