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.
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
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.
