musical, musical: love never dies

The Musical:

I went to go see the 25th Anniversary Phantom of the Opera Live at the Albert Hall in movie theatre's last October with my boyfriend as kind of an early two-year-anniversary celebration and it was spectacular. I cried. I laughed. I savored every moment. And I had the wonderful music of Andrew Lloyd Webber stuck in my mind all over again for days on end, even though I almost always hum tunes from POTO whenever I'm in a particularly good mood (J can attest to this fact, I assure you.)

Needless to say, I was beyond ecstatic when I saw the trailer for Love Never Dies during the previews for The Phantom of The Opera, which is the sequel to POTO. I was so excited I nearly squealed aloud with utter delight at even the thought of getting the chance to have a peek inside the Phantom's world for just one moment more, and I was even more excited when I found out that the American cinema's would be showing the Australian production of Love Never Dies on the Big Screen the following year only a couple of weeks after my 23rd birthday on May 23rd. 

*Momma pre-ordered the DVD of Love Never Dies for me for my birthday too. Seriously, she's the best momma ever.*

 The Venue:

See, The Phantom himself has instructed me to go see the performance of Love Never Dies on May 23rd at 7pm. If I do not obey his wishes the consequences will be catastrophic. So, without further ado, I am going to see Love Never Dies this Wednesday with my love, as per Erik's strict instruction. Nothing could keep this Phantom Phan (ahem "Angel of Music") from attending this auspicious musical occasion, for one must certainly support the arts and watch the Phantom live on, right!?

The Trailer:

The Soundtrack:

I'm obsessed with this soundtrack. Truly I am. I got it for my 23rd birthday with the iTunes money that I procured from the parentals and I cannot wait to hear the musical scores drift through the theatre air this Wednesday, the 23rd! 

I plan on getting chills and crying all over again, yes, again. 

(The number 23 seems to keep on popping up wherever I go these days...oh, so very strange.)

My Favorite Songs:

Are you a fellow Phantom Phan? 
Will you be going to see Love Never Dies this Wednesday evening too? 
What are your fave songs from the Love Never Dies sountrack?


  1. Oh man, I just love Andrew Loyd Webber!! The POTO movie they made in 2004 is just about my fave thing ever. I sing the songs allllll the time too! Haha! I haven't seen Love Never Dies, but I've heard some of the songs which are, of course, beautiful. Have fun seeing it!

    1. Girl, you totally need to see the 25th Live Anniversary edition of POTO! You will literally D.I.E. when you hear Ramin Karimloo and Sierra Boggess sing as The Phantom and Christine. I'm pretty sure that Ramin is my favorite Phantom ever, even though I do love Gerard Butler as The Phantom in the 2004 movie version of the musical. Seriouly, though, watch the live musical version from Albert Hall and you will be stunned!

    Dear Sarah Elizabeth

    I think this is just great. Even though it consists mostly out of clips, the written part is truly excellent! I love the way you describe everything! I am assuming you like LND, and POTO, so I have some news for you. There is an absurd website on the net called Love Should Die-phantom needs no sequel- Can you believe?? They say that LND is a "train wreck of a show" !! Me and a fellow blogger have started a rival blog, "Love Should Die...they are wrong!" Please visit us and join the fight at


    1. Thanks, GreekGirl! Oh, and I've already bookmarked your website...super interesting. Glad you stopped by! =)

    I have to admit, even if Love Never Dies isn't casting Ramin and Sierra (my favourites <3) , it's a great musical. But you can't help comparing the two musicals and sigh at LND. Miracles only happen once.

    1. Oh, yes, I so love love love Ramin (& Sierra) too! I try not to compare LND to POTO because really, you just can't. They are so unique in contrast as far as setting, music and story is concerned, and they do stand alone all by themselves quite fine, at least I think so.
