5.0 out of 5 stars Love Never Dies Reinvented on Bluray, 17 Feb 2012
This review is from: Love Never Dies Double Play (Blu-ray + DVD) (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!

Incredible. Saw it in a theater in New York, NY last night, Feb. 28, 2012. Although the eighteen ($18.00) dollar price was stiff, I didn't want it to end. Phantom's and Christine's voice were so beautiful.
