Sequel to Phantom of the Opera

I saw Ramin Karimloo singing in the 25th Anniversary Les Miserables performance and looked him up and saw he performed in a show called Love Never Dies. I was surprised to see it was a continuation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Phantom of the Opera!

So I got the CD and have been listening. The music is very Andrew Lloyd Webber, it’s very different and yet similar to the Phantom.

The storyline is fascinating and theatrical, although I have a hard time believing the events of the song “Beneath a Moonless Sky,” even though most of the story hinges on them.

I would have loved to watch this but unfortunately I think it’s no longer playing. There’s an Australian version DVD releasing but it doesn’t have Ramin Karimloo in it, which is disappointing. He’s supposed to have created a more dynamic Phantom than any other actor who has played the character.



  2. Oh, LOVE Ramin Karimloo. And totally recommend the DVD in the previous comment. Ramin as the phantom is a *must* see.

  3. I've got the DVD on my Netflix queue! I would have liked to see him in Love Never Dies, though.

  4. Maybe you'll get some inspirations of the next male-lead from watching Ramin! ;D hee hee.

  5. No kidding! I was teasing my husband and said Ramin induced Bieber-fever in the over forty crowd. :)
