I am a huge Phantom fan but I had never even heard of a possible sequel to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of The Phantom of the Opera! Luckily, a patron told me about “Love Never Dies” and KDL already had copies circulating. (So some of you already knew.) The production has never been brought to the Unites States and the movie is actually a filming of a live stage production in Melbourne.
Love Never Dies is set about 10 years after the end of the Phantom. The Phantom escaped the fire, and along with Madam Giry and Meg, moved to New York and created a show for Coney Island. The show is part circus and part vaudeville, with Meg as the star. But Christine is lured to New York to perform, bringing along Raoul and their son Gustave. (It turns out that Raoul gambled away his fortune and Christine is singing to help pay debts.) Needless to say, the Phantom does reveal himself to Christine and wants her to sing for him once more.
I loved the sequel so Thank You to the patron who told me about it!
