As I already own the Original London Cast of "Phantom of the Opera" and "Love Never Dies", the 4 CDs were pretty useless (except for a unlock-able gift on the first CD). The DVD was also pretty disappointing with original music videos, interviews and a recording of the 10,000th performance curtain call at Her Majestys, all of which are widely available on the internet. So one could argue the bulk of this CD/ DVD set is of little new use. However the limited edition aspect of it makes it desirable, with a numbered certificate and commemorative coin, and the original London brochure. The hardback book is fairly entertaining, however as I own several Phantom books I have noticed the text is very similar/ identical to the books I currently own and therefore learnt little new from reading it.
Overall, if you are an avid Phantom phan then you are likely to be disappointed with this as you probably are familiar with most of the content. However its still nice to own something limited edition and celebrating the 25th anniversary of a fantastic show.

5.0 out of 5 stars PHANTASTIC! 5 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this item at the beginning of October & it came very promptly & well-packaged.

What was inside:

A 2 disc copy of the original London Cast recording (with an extra surprise)
A 2 disc copy of the original London Cast recording of Love Never Dies
A dvd featuring promo videos, interviews & other stuff
A leaflet containing a brief timeline of the show
A replica first night programme
A richly illustrated hardback book with LOADS of info & some incredible stats!
A beautiful silver medallion featuring the iconic mask emblem & mounted on a mini-certificate

And all packaged in a sturdy box

A collector's piece, indeed!

And one no true 'phan' should be without.

Disappointing, mislabeled collection. The supposedly OLC recording is the 25th anniversary recording. I retuned my first order, and the second one came with the same wrong label as OLC. The inside box was broken from transit on both orders too. Nothing new or great about this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is this worth the money? 31 Jan 2012
By PhantomSith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Is this Box set worth $150.45 or in general, $100+? In short...sadly, no.

I say this as someone who vastly Loves---Absolutely ADORES Phantom of the Opera, not just Webber's rendition, and I spend a lot of time on youtube being a geek. So I will tell you things as I see it about this, and inform you just what the Interviews and Archive footage is, so you can be INFORMED before buying, unlike myself with only a few 'guesses' false ones at that.

As many of you may have guessed, this DOES NOT have anything to with Filming of Phantom in Royal Albert Hall(Karimloo, and Boggess)

Let me start with the DVD, the main reason why I bought it. Interviews...Rare Archive Footage---okay cool, there's a lot of that which never has been really released in detail. Let's see what they have right? I pop in the DVD, select the Singles first, which has the Complete Footage of Promotional videos:

1. Phantom of the Opera with Steve Harley and Brightman,
2. All I Ask of You(the painfully corny one, In my Opinion) With Brightman with Cliff Richard.
3. Music of the Night with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman
4. Wishing You Where Somehow Here Again with Sarah Brightman. (Okay, I haven't watched this one entirely on Youtube)
All these can be found on youtube, and by some uploaders...in better quality. But Okay. good to have on the DVD.

Next, the Interviews/News

These I haven't seen before, probably because I haven't Looked for them.

1. ALW Interview with Terry Wogan, 12/27/1985
2. ALW and Saran Brightman Interview on Breakfast Time 10/8/1986
3. News Report with Sue Lawley, BBC News, 6/6/1988 (This is interesting as it Talks about the Award sweep Phantom did, and Crawford's brief history before Phantom, with footage of his comedic acts I haven't seen elsewhere.)

And that's it? Really? Seriously? No Present Day Interviews of Sarah and Michael with other Original Casts looking back, or present cast members noting how this all inspired them someway somehow? C'mon, there's more Information on Phantom in the '04 Movie Special Edition DVD with "Behind the Mask, The Story of the Phantom of the Opera" or the Youtube's "Behind the Mask Documentary - Phantom of the Opera" has information, interviews etc that should have made it to this DVD! Especially the Youtube version, that's good!

But we're not through with this DVD Yet, we have two more sections.

ALW 50th Birthday Celebration--Need I point out a website again? No? Okay

This section features A Phantom 'playing' the Overture, then Brightman Singing POTO with Antonio Bandaras, then All I Ask with Michael Ball, and her then singing Music of the Night---that's it. Literally.

The last Section is the 10,000 Performance and 24th Anniversary(on the West End)

Okay, maybe we'll get something good here, that I haven't seen. Something...clips of that show, interview with the cast--- and the video quality is worse then an amateur boot legger with a good seat. It's starts after final bows where the Phantom(Who I can't Identify beyond Crawford calling him "Steve" because the image is THAT bad) informs the audience of the occasion, and introduces Webber, who says the usual stuff of "this wouldn't have happen without etc" and then introduces Michael Crawford. They bring out cake, cut it then graffiti falls to the audience. The amusing part was the Phantom that night commented that the show was almost as old as he is, and raised his hand as a joke when Webber asked how many(the audience) weren't even born yet.

As for the other contents of the boxset, you get a Coin to which there are only 15,000 of, Full Original Cast Recording of Both POTO and LND(NO 25th Royal Albert Hall Recording in this), A Reproduced Playbill of the POTO Premier, and a Book that documents the History of Phantom(including the various Notable Adaptions) from the original book up to LND.

I suppose this would be good if you weren't as researched as I. To me, it just isn't worth it, though the book might prove interesting, and the Coin would have some worth some years from now. the PlayBill will probably not be worth much, as it IS reproduction. As for the CDs, the design is cool, but for a $150, you'd think you would at least get a REAL CASE instead of the cardboard ones. Same for the DVD.

I would say this is worth maybe $70-$80, Maybe. If I were putting this out for as much as they're asking for, I would have put more Documentaries, behind the scene footage that I know they have, interviews with the Remaining Original Cast Members, and the Current/Popular casts. Ask Phantoms Like McGillin, JOJ, Panaro, Cudia, Karimloo, Carpenter ---all these people who MADE Phantom last as long as it as---why they've left the role, only to come back a few years later to play it again! Heck, Mention all the repeat Cast Members, because this show, would not have lasted without their dedication. Not to mention putting the Royal Albert Hall CD and DVD in Here since they are the 25TH! This should be the Ultimate Phantom Bundle! This Boxset was not particularly made for Hardcore "Phans" or remotely dedicated to the people of the show---the hundreds that put so much into this story. This box is about Webber, and Sarah---with an small pat on the back to Michael---and forgetting the rest.

So, If you've read this far, you've been informed of what you're getting in it entirety.

2.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Digital content is expired! 10 Nov 2013
By eastvillage - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
They advertise on this packaging that you get to have one complimentary download of one of eight international cast recordings of the show, when you run bonus software the record company's browser says "we're sorry, but this promotion has ended." Such a shame. Nowhere on the packaging does it say that there's an expiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Technological MIRACLE! 9 May 2014
By TBUGoth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I was going to call this review "A Real Money Saver" do to the value of the items in the box-set individually, but an almost irreversible tragedy changed my title. I got the box set on Christmas of 2011 and automatically examined it on the back of the "The Phantom Phenemenon" letter in the very top of the box set, there are instructions on how to download EIGHT more cast recordings. One day I stayed home from school depressed, and my Mom forgot to turn off the Internet, so I would be board and decide I wanted to go to school DEPRESSED, I spent the majority of the day clicking on the CDs to make them download. While they were downloading I read "A Little Princess" by Frances Hodgson Burnett. After seven HOURS off downloading, I organized them into a playlist in Itunes 9, and for the rest of the day, I could get around my Mom's punishment, by listening to the "Phantom of Opera" CDs WITHOUT the use of the Internet. It was like some else believed me that I was DEPRESSED, so my Mom's punishment was UNFAIR, and someone made sure I would be entertained if I was banned from the Internet. Nine months later, the Mac's file allocation table got corrupted, and the CDs were lost! I was heartbroken. I had lost the one thing that made me feel cared for! I couldn't download them again, because the promotion was over. Paying around $700 to replace the CDs, that weren't even sold in the United States, would devalue the memory of the day I downloaded them. My Mom refused to buy DiscWorrior and decided to use free programs instead, those didn't work, so I payed the $100 to get DiscWorrior myself, with Christmas money. DiscWorrior said that the use of multiple programs had damaged the hard drive too much for it to fix the Mac. I thought writing Andrew Lloyd Webber was too risky, because he had the right to say no, I won'r let you download the CDs again, to fix Without anything to live for I finally attempted suicide on Saturday February 1, 2014. When my Uncle FINALLY got around to attempting to fix the Mac, after the PC had not booted in a little over a year, He discovered the CDs are STILL on there, even though the dive is permanently. THAT should NOT have happened! Thank you all involved in the making this box set miracle!

Was given as a gift to someone who is a Phantom lover, having seen the play in a variety of venues and this was the perfect Valentine's gift.
