I had never seen either the Broadway or London production of ALW's Love Never Dies and I am a big fan of the original Phantom and the 25th Anniversary production. So when I heard this DVD was being released I was keen to get my copy. I wasn't disappointed! Much tighter soundtrack and it made a lot more sense seeing the DVD than trying to fathom out what was happening from the cd of the London production. Alright, I've heard discussions that the two leads aren't as strong as in the London show but I was very impressed by the Melbourne leads and the cast in general,lots of verve, high emotion, terrific singing and swelling score.. The imaginative settings and costumes were astounding.An absolute knock-out!
