This is a spectacular production brilliantly captured on this DVD. Special effects outstanding.
The musical itself is very entertaining with fabulous songs and music. The quality of recording and singing is excellent and I cannot understand how the show was not a huge success. However, having seen Sierra Boggess and Ramin Karimloo perform this live on stage and also having seen them perform together in the Phantom of the Opera, for me - they are Christine and the Phantom.
While Ben Lewis and Anna O'Byrne on this DVD give excellent performances and sound great, I think Sierra Boggess is more enchanting and more believably under the spell of the Phantom. Ramin Karimiloo also seems more menacing as the Phantom. Unfortunately they have not produced a DVD of Love Never Dies with these two in the lead.
These are not negative comments about the DVD as the production is excellent Well worth buying and watching again and again.
