The much anticipated worldwide premiere for Love Never Dies was held on 9 March 2010 at London's Adelphi Theatre. The world has eagerly waited for Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to the long running Phantom Of The Opera, and they were treated to the new west-end musical with its flamboyant stage production and moving new music.
The Phantom Of The Opera which opened in London in 1986 is still running at Her Majesty's Theatre, it then opened in New York in 1988 making it Broadway's longest running show ever.
Its sequel, Love Never Dies is set ten years after the mysterious disappearance of The Phantom from the Paris Opera House played by Ramin Karimloo. Christine Daaé, played by Sierra Boggess, accepts an offer to come to America and perform at New York's fabulous new playground of the world - Coney Island. Christine arrives in New York with her husband Raoul and their son Gustave and soon discovers the identity of the anonymous impresario who has lured her from France to sing.
The official website (http://www.loveneverdies.com) provides fans with regular production updates and blogs as well as being able to follow the show's progress on Twitter and Facebook.
You can also check out the first single from the musical "Till I Hear You Sing" here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XegytVAM5WU)
Will Love Never Dies grace our shores soon? While we await with bated breath, watch out for our review of the soundtrack and what's more, bookmark movieXclusive.com, where there will be a promo which gives you a chance to win the soundtrack!

- Jonathan Nolan is working hard on the script. Based on David S. Goyer and the Nolan brothers came up with the story and as of the moment, Jonathan Nolan is working hard on the script. An epic story has been promised and in Christopher Nolan we trust.
- No supernatural or super-science characters that are not based on realities ... yup ... that means no Mr Freeze or other villains of such nature.
- The 3rd movie will be the end. It's not like a on going comics series or TV series that goes on and on. It will be a wrap up of things that had been introduced
- and when they were stuck during their brain storming for the 3rd Batman movie, David S. Goyer came up with a great story concept for a new Superman movie . It managed to excite Christopher Nolan into taking up the producer role for it so we are pretty excited to see what is it all about.
