SIX SONGS FROM LOVE NEVER DIES!
I have a sneak peak for you of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical (the sequel of Phantom of the Opera) titled, Love Never Dies. Here is the synopsis from Playbill.com: “Love Never Dies continues the story of the Phantom of the Opera, who has moved from his lair in the Paris Opera house to haunt the fairgrounds of Coney Island, far across the Atlantic. Set 10 years after the mysterious disappearance of the Phantom from Paris, this show is a rollercoaster ride of obsession and intrigue, in which music and memory can play cruel tricks, and the Phantom sets out to prove that, indeed, “Love Never Dies.”
Now I have to be honest and say, I wasn’t too intrigued by the synopsis. Dare I call it, hokey and a bit ridiculous, but then I listened to the two album tracks. Wow!
You’ll be able to purchase the album March 8, 2010 but only from Amazon.uk.
It opens on Broadway on November 11, 2010.
“Till I Hear You Sing (Once More)”
“Coney Island Waltz”
